The postponed National School Games (NSG), originally slated to start last month, will resume in March, the Ministry of Education (MOE) announced on Tuesday (March 9).

But only the A, B and Senior Division competitions for 12 of the Games’ 29 sports will take place from March 29 to May 27.

The 12 sports are badminton, bowling, golf, gymnastics, rope skipping, sepak takraw, shooting, table tennis, taekwondo (poomsae), tennis, 3v3 volleyball and wushu. They were selected because they are “considered to be of lower risk, as they are non-contact sports with no or little intermingling between students across different schools,” said Mrs Tan Chen Kee, divisional director, student development curriculum division at MOE.

The Games’ 17 other disciplines, including athletics, swimming and popular team sports like basketball, football and netball will remain suspended for now.

The NSG, which typically runs from January to August, is the biggest sports event in Singapore, involving about 60,000 student-athletes.

Last year’s edition was cancelled for the first time in its 61-year history owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
