“The will to win means nothing if you do not have the will to train hard”
The GESS Track and Field team believes in excellence – whether during training or competition. This resilient attitude saw the team posting credible results at the annual Inter-School Cross Country Championships.
We prepare students to be physically fit and to acquire technical skills in track & field events. We hope that students will develop the love for keeping fit and pursue a lifelong healthy lifestyle. Training includes distance running, weight training, speed drills and techniques of jumps. In preparation for The National track and field championship, in depth techniques for jumps and relays are imparted to students. This is complemented by speed training, endurance training and distance running
Values are paramount in track and field. We believe the right attitude will turn students into leaders and athletes into champions. We do not wait for competition to train; we train to get into competition form. Our focus is on inculcating the right habits of mind and to invest in the growth of our students. A student who leaves with a well-rounded development is the pride of the CCA.
Since 2016, we only take in new students for long distance running as short distance running/jumping will be gradually phased out. In other words, Track and Field CCA will eventually become Cross Country CCA.
Our Achievements (For year 2014):
In the 2014 Inter-School Cross Country Championship, our ‘B’ Division Girls attained Silver in the Discus event.
Our Achievements (For year 2015):
Our school took part in the 56th National Inter-School Cross Country Championships 2015 in March. We had participants in both the ‘C’ Division girls and boys events as well as the ‘B’ division girls and boys events. Our athletes completed the races with very encouraging results. In April 2015, we entered thirty of our athletes for the Inter-School Track and Field Championship events at Bukit Gombak Stadium. In the ‘C’ Division, Tan Yi Lin (Sec 2H) qualified for the 3000m finals while Tan Zhi Yang (Sec 2H) and Tay Chee Hean (Sec 2H) qualified for the 200m semi-finals. In the ‘B’ division, Lim Chan Peng (Sec 3B) qualified for the 400m semi-finals. Melissa Yee Wai Teng represented the ‘B’ Division Girls in the 56th National Inter School Track and Field Championships 2015 in April this year and made the school proud when she walked away with 2nd position for both the Discus and Shot Put events, her personal best scores yet. Melissa also represented Singapore schools in the ASEAN School Games in Brunei on 23rd of November 2015.
