Well-Being Run (Every Even Week)

 All staff and students participate in the Well-Being every even week.
  • Everyone is encouraged to run or walk at least once a week. The activity takes place every even week starting from Term 1 Week 2. Primary 1 to 6 students and staff run during the Health Education lesson. The P5 and P6 students and staff run a total distance of about 1km outside the school compound, while the P1 to P4 students and staff run a total distance of about 1km as well within the school compound.
  • Our school has been blessed with a very picturesque surrounding and this makes the whole exercise for the whole school, not just a physically enriching one but also a spiritually and socially fulfilling one.
  • The pupils and staff have become so used to the activity that keeping fit and healthy has become a part of the normal everyday life of an OLQP member.

The NAPFA aims to:
  • Promote the attainment of desirable levels of overall fitness (cardio respiratory fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, power, agility, speed and coordination).
  • Motivate pupils to improve their fitness and general well-being.
Identify individual pupils’ areas of physical strengths and weaknesses.

In the primary schools, from 2014 onwards, students who are medically fit take the National Physical Fitness Award (NAPFA) Test in  Primary 4 (age 9+ ) and in P6 ( Age 11+ ).

Students are required to pass the NAPFA test. Students who fail the test may re-take the tests to try to achieve at least a pass.

Students' promotion to the next level will not be affected if they fail the test.

The window period for the test is from April to September each year.
Students who are on medical leave can make the necessary arrangements with the schools to reschedule the test.
