The PE, Art & Music Department seeks to develop in all saints a love and appreciation of sports, physical exercise, art, and music to lead a well-balanced lifestyle.
(i) PHE Syllabus
P1 to P4 pupils learn skills in the domains of Athletics, Dance, Games & Sports, Gymnastics, Physical Health Education (PHE), and Outdoor Education.
(ii) Programme for Active Learning (PAL)
P1 to P2 pupils participate in a whole year programme exploring, experiencing, and expressing themselves in the domains of Outdoor Education, Performance Arts, Sports & Games and Visual Arts.
(iii) Saints Games Day
P1 to P6 pupils showcase skills learnt from PHE Syllabus in a sporting event designed to achieve team excellence.
(iv) P3 SwimSafer Programme / P3 Swimming Carnival
P3 pupils participate in a learn-to-swim programme ending with a swimming carnival to showcase the skills they have learnt.
The Art curriculum seeks to cultivate a spirit of innovation and creativity by encouraging pupils to share their ideas, thoughts and feelings through their art work with the aim of developing self-confidence and celebrating achievements. In the process, pupils also develop appreciation for the visual art and become visually literate in their ability to observe, understand, and make meaning of what they see. Through in house and external art competitions, pupils are given the opportunity to express themselves and find their voice through the art making process.
Through the teaching and learning of basic theory, music appreciation and music making, pupils learn to express themselves musically. All pupils are able to play the recorder and the guitar with some proficiency by the time they reach the Primary Six level. We hope to inspire in all our saints a love for music.
Parents can help in the following areas

Outdoor activities help children to experience and enjoy the environment. Simple activities such as walks can help to stimulate their senses, improve metabolism and reduce the risk of myopia.
(ii) Encourage the love for team play
Playing with friends and neighbours at the playground or sports facilities can help to develop teamwork and leadership.
