Mental and Physical Health
PE classes are based on the Chinese National Curriculum Standard, with reference to the American SHAPE standards and outcomes, which are considered to be the “best-practice” in this subject area, students will participate in an array of skills-based, age-appropriate activities and sports at our state-of-the-art facilities, such as tennis, soccer, swimming and team sports. The school will also organize various sports activities and events, including fun sports day, house sports day, school sports meeting, school cup, Olympic competition, etc.
We believe that sports can actively influence and change life. Students will learn how to maintain and improve their physical and mental health in order to foster high academic achievement and a healthy lifestyle. Through the HT Physical Education Program, every student will develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of impactful physical activity.
Visual and Performing Arts
The Visual and Performing Arts are an integral part of the well-rounded HT educational program. Through their Art, Music, and Drama classes, our students will develop their artistic perception, historical and cultural knowledge, aesthetic valuing, and creative expression but just as importantly, they will be exposed to a form of thinking and a way of knowing based on human judgement, invention, and imagination. So whether they are learning how to compose music or perform on stage, our Visual and Performing Arts program will give students the opportunity to envision, empathize, create, evaluate, apply self-discipline, and work collaboratively, as they use the potential of their human mind to their full and unique capability.
