DSA Exercise 2018


DISTINCTIVE PROGRAMME: HEALTH AND SPORTS SCIENCES

In Springfield, we nurture students to be lifelong learners and exemplary leaders. We invite Primary 6 students with sporting talent to join our school through the DSA Exercise. Through our Applied Learning Programme (ALP) which looks into the areas of health and sports sciences, students will be able to optimize their performance by understanding and applying what they have learnt during the ALP lessons when they engage in their sports.
