Basketball is one of the sports CCAs that Ping Yi offers as part of MOE’s effort to provide a holistic education to the students. Through the weekly trainings, the players learn the importance of teamwork, perseverance and self-discipline. This sport encourages students to work in a team which is an important quality that the students should possess when they enter adulthood. Workers who are team players have the ability to relate to others, moderate conflicts and motivate team members.
This year, our committed players trained relentlessly, putting in their best efforts, and giving their time to trainings without compromising their academic responsibilities. Their hard work paid off and they did the school proud. Ping Yi’s B &C Division boys team were awarded the “East Zone Fair Play” award in the annual East Zone National Basketball Championship 2017 and 2018 respectively. Their impressive performance and exemplary behavior and character shown during the matches reflects on their values of integrity, honesty and sportsmanship. This award was given to only 1 out of the 23 competing schools and we were very honoured to have won it.
