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.
