The teachers take personal responsibility for our professional development by participating actively and regularly in relevant workshops and sharing sessions. To heighten the quality of instruction, the school also works closely with PE professionals like Dr Judith Rink, distinguished Professor Emeritus from the University of South Carolina, US to foster the effectiveness of teaching and learning.  Since 2014, the school has collaborated with Educational Technology Division (ETD), Physical Education and Sports Teachers Academy (PESTA) and other schools to explore the use of technology in Physical Education and Sports.

The school constantly seeks and rides on innovative platforms to maximize student participation rate, activity level and learning experiences in PE and Co-Curricular Activities (CCA). For example, the school partners cluster schools and external organisations to organise health-related activities such as Health and Wellness Week, Library cum Eyecare Week, Project Fit, Healthy Recess Programme and BP Initiative @ Schools programme in an effort to create more authentic learning experiences for the students.
