VS IGCSE Sharing for PE HOD DDM Group & TIPD UK Group

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).
See clip below:

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

On behalf of the DDMers who attended the sharing session today, I would like to extend my appreciation to Mr Randall Siow for hosting us.

I was very impressed with the progress they have made towards implementing PE as an O-level subject in the school. The school has embraced the use of IT as a learning tool within PE. Their students have various activities such as camps, CCAs and projects that provide a holistic experience too.

All these programmes are made possible by Mr Siow's capable team of PE teachers who are truly dedicated in their roles. The other important factor towards their success would be the strong school support towards the challenging task ahead of them.

I wish them all the best in their journey towards making PE as an O-level subject in the school a reality.
