"You know it's not counted in your report book, right?" I reminded him. He was undeterred. I think anything related to sports is a worthy challenge to him (another huge reminder of how different my kids are - Lesley-Anne dreads the 2.4km walk/run in NAPFA more than any academic test).
Andre wanted to know what the prerequisites were for getting a gold position in NAPFA. I went scouring the Internet for the score chart and believe it or not, it was nowhere to be found. Seriously - not even on the MOE or Singapore Sports Council website! I don't get it, we can't be the only ones interested in knowing what to aim for, what's the big secret?
Anyway, after a long search, Kenneth finally located it on a school website. For the benefit of other parents, I'm posting the NAPFA score charts (for primary school level) here - both boys and girls. If the chart is too small to be read, click on it and you should see an enlarged version.
These were Andre's scores:
- Situps: 40
- Standing broad jump: 165 cm
- Sit & reach: 24 cm (he thinks, this is the one he can't quite recall)
- Inclined pullups: 22
- Shuttle run: 11.3 secs
- 1.6km: about 9 mins
