Key Events and Activities

X Games 2018

Our inaugural X Games 2018 was held on 29 March 2018 from 0730 to 1230. It was organised for the Primary 3 to 6 students and held at Evergreen Primary School. During the event, students were required to complete a total of 15 challenges as a class at 9 different locations in the school. Top 3 classes for each level were given a plaque for completing the challenges in the fastest time possible. 

Through these challenges, students were given opportunities to not only participate actively in all the challenges, but also work collaboratively as a class to complete them. Students have to learn to negotiate and communicate their ideas actively and solve the problems as they are presented. 

With the focus on the Olympic values; Respect, Friendship and Excellence, they will be able to strengthen their bond and camaraderie at the end of each challenge.
