Programme for School-Based Excellence

The Ministry of Education’s Programme for School-Based Excellence scheme recognizes schools that have achieved standards of excellence in selected areas. This scheme creates more opportunities for students to develop themselves and for schools to develop programmes to further enhance these competencies.

Qifa Primary School’s track record of excellence in volleyball over the years has led to its selection by MOE into the scheme. Our niche programme in volleyball aims to get each and every pupil to be able to play volleyball by the time our pupils graduate from school in primary six. This is achieved through Enrichment Volleyball Programmes for all pupils as well as widespread participation in inter-class volleyball competitions. In addition, volleyball is also taught as part of the integral Physical Education Programme. The aim is to infuse a culture of enjoying sports through volleyball and in the process, cultivate a healthy lifestyle among all our pupils. Key to sports participation is also our emphasis on character development with the promotion of sportsmanship as an essential component.

Our efforts to develop a culture of excellence in volleyball have also been successful. The results at the West Zone level of competition over the past years have effectively entrenched our position as the premier school in volleyball in the west.

Our players have slowly, but surely, made progress at the National Level of competition too. The results at the National Level have, over the years, bore testimony to our success as one of the best schools in volleyball in Singapore.

Our inclusion into the Programme for School-Based Excellence ( Volleyball ) by MOE is recognition that volleyball, as a niche, has and will continue to play a large part in the overall development of our pupils. Going forward, we will be engaging expert coaches from overseas to train our pupils as well as continue bringing our teams for overseas training and competitions – all with the aim to enhancing our competencies in the sport. The future of volleyball in Qifa Primary School is bright and exciting and we welcome all to embark on this exciting journey with us.
