Sports

It is our aim at Dulwich College (Singapore) to foster a life-long passion for sport in our students. From their first steps in Toddlers through to their last steps before leaving for University, sport and healthy living is embedded in their daily routines at the College.

The core aim for Sport in DUCKS is for the children to have fun and to enjoy the first experiences of what we hope will be a lifelong passion for sport. The basic fundamental movement principles are nurtured in a fun, safe, vibrant and supportive environment. Early Years children are taught a variety of sport skills by specialists, focusing on gymnastic and athletic movements, swimming and the development of a range of competitive team and individual sports, based on English Independent Schools. They are encouraged, nurtured and their participation is celebrated. The formative years are crucial in the development of our young athletes.

"The DUCKS Duathlon event encouraged children to participate in a range of disciplines, cheer on their friends and have fun. Parents were thrilled to see to see their children enjoy winning points for their Houses and the warm interaction between the children and their teachers." Reception Parent


 

As students move into the Junior School the opportunities for structured sports clubs and fixtures is at the heart of the programme. Every student participates competitively in well-structured House competitions. If a child wants to play for Dulwich College (Singapore) they have the opportunity to do so, learning the valuable skills of winning and losing with grace and humility. Open access for sport ensures we provide both depth and breadth to the programme. Students demonstrate the Dulwich traits of Determination, Courage, Skillfulness and a Gracious attitude every day. The British Independent School sports (rugby, netball, football, athletics and swimming) dominate the participation for students, but a whole range of sports are accessible through the curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities. Students also start to experience overseas tours and festivals, with the Dulwich Primary Games a particular highlight for students.

The Senior School allows students to focus on their preferred sports and learn how to train to compete. As we foster that life-long love for sport and healthy living the focus is on the process of performance, enabling students to participate not with fear, but with self-belief, purpose and pride. For the most talented there is a Student Athlete Support Programme designed to provide pathways for a career or future in sport by nurturing their talent through four pillars of individual development: Technical and Tactical in a chosen sport, Lifestyle Management, Physical Strength and Conditioning and Cognitive and Emotional Control. For everybody, participation is celebrated through House sport and competitive fixtures against other schools both in Singapore and across Asia, with the Dulwich Olympiad being a major festival and highlight.
