The SSM programme offers sport courses for students to take up as Unrestricted Electives. Unless otherwise stipulated, courses run at 3 hours per week for a period of 12 weeks for 1 course unit. Each course unit is worth 3 Academic Units (AUs).
All students who like to take up sport courses with the SSM must be physically active with no injuries or medical conditions which might affect his/her performance during lesson.
Students will be prompted to make a medical declaration during course registration. In addition, ALL students must submit a hardcopy of the Sport Safety Waiver Form. We will also require students who are below the age of 21 years to submit the Parental Waiver section found on the same form with approval from their parent/guardian for allowing enrolment in the respective course. Safety is crucial in sports and it is every student's responsibility to declare their medical history (if any).

"Teaching the young adults here at NIE/NTU has been a great journey of nurturing, loving, caring, and infusing a passion of learning. These young people are hungry for knowledge, engaging in their approach, and a go-for-it attitutde in their quest to acquire and master physical skills, knowledge and "know-how's" of the thinking sport of Rugby.
As a double international in Track and Rugby, my responsibilities are to impart and impact upon them the rudimentary of the sport, but importantly, I teach them the unwritten elements of the curriculum- the values of respect (of the game, the players, the equipment, and the environment), hard work, and fortitude. We learn by examples and the way I model in my instructional and practical classes will surely have a continuous impact on their future roles as rugby teachers, rugby enthusiasts, and sports mentors. Significantly, I learn from them as well; I laugh, and we laughed together. I evaluate their skill capabilities and work the students to their full potential. The students responded with "stretching" themselves with limits that they never knew existed in their young bodies. In short, I am honoured to be part of the whole in making a difference in their training and learning here at the NIE/NTU and to the students I teach- it is a wonderful enriching journey and thanks for having me to be part of your learning experience! Continue to go forward,explore,expand and excel. "
