On Mon 26th Feb, VS PE Dept hosted 7 PE HODs under-going their DDM (Diploma in Departmental Management) to give a sharing on our implementation of PE as a GCE O-Level subject.
We shared with them the rationale for our initiative as well as how we approached crafting the proposal.
Although the sharing was amongst HODs, the mood was very informal and casual, we shared frankly and openly amongst each other what we felt were the various opportunities that VS saw in pushing for such a programme as well as the problems and obstacles we needed to surmount and overcome.
Our guest, Matt Hogan from Eaton Bank School in UK also gave us more insights into the UK Examination system where they have different exam boards delivering the same exam (i.e. the AQA, the Edexcel, OCR) Due to the differences in size, operation and educational concerns; Matt was able to shed light on the differences in practices in implementing the O-levels in the UK.
Matt also gave us a brief tour of Eaton Bank's VLE (Virtual Learning Environment).

He has kindly furnished me with a guest account. Interested teachers who want to tour their site, please contact me.
