The aim of WMP is to enable our students who are overweight to achieve ideal weight to keep fit in a fun way. This is achieved by getting the students to increase their physical activity, reduce sedentary lifestyle and adopting a healthier eating behaviour. Family involvement is vital to ensure success of the programme and hence, the school works collaboratively with HPB. Parents and caregivers are also invited to attend health talks and be given tips to support their child’s growth and development.
Physical Sports (CCA)
Students who choose these Core CCAs will undergo some trials and selections. Students who have shown good potential and talents will represent the school at zonal and national inter-school competitions. They will have to undergo training sessions at least twice a week during school term. Students who are not selected to represent the school may still be asked to attend the once a week training session. A few of our top boys and girls have benefited from these CCAs as they gained entry to the Singapore Sports School and other secondary schools through the Direct School Admission (DSA). Once the students are selected to represent the school, they are to be committed to stay in that particular CCA throughout their years in the school.
A popular choice among students, this CCA is offered to both boys and girls. Training sessions catering to the different levels, from P1 to P6, are conducted thrice a week during the school term. Aside from equipping our students with the essential soccer skills, strong emphasis is placed in character building. Leadership skills, team spirit and sportsmanship are inculcated in the students. Students will also get the opportunity to represent the school at zonal and national competitions.
Student in Badminton CCA will have the opportunity to learn the various skills in playing the game as well as the values and attitudes associated with good sportsmanship such as fair play, integrity, respect and self-discipline. They will learn to be responsible team members and play an active role in contributing to the team’s success. In addition, they will also learn the skills in building rapport with one another through helping and supporting one another in the CCA.

Aesthetics CCA (Performing and Visual Arts)
Students who choose the Aesthetics CCA will be trained to take part in the biannual Singapore Youth Festival and/or other related competitions. As much effort and money are invested in these CCAs to groom each student for the important competitions, students are generally expected to stay in these CCAs for their entire stay in the school. Students will also have opportunities to perform at national and community events.
Chinese drumming is a group activity associated with pomp, circumstance and jubilation. It is a hallmark of prosperity and celebration, uniting people through collective rhythm and tempo. The players follow a main rhythm while adding “complexity”, “volume” and “presence” to the performance. In Loyang, we aim to equip our students with these exciting drumming skills and opportunities to participate in performances in school or outside.
