PE teachers share best-practices

JERUDONG International School’s (JIS) Physical Education (PE) Department recently hosted a Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) Secondary PE Job Alike Workshops (JAWS).

The workshop involved teachers from seven different international schools from five countries – Brunei, China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand. It was a great opportunity for the senior school PE teachers to get together to share best practices and new ideas about the teaching of PE.

Held over two days, Friday and Saturday, the ‘PE and Sport in International Schools’ JAWS workshop saw fruitful discussions, presentations and practical applications through the sharing of ideas and collaborations which enable teachers to emerge as better practitioners.

During the workshops they identified the various approaches to teaching net and wall games, ways to get creative in PE, info-communication technology in PE as well as the practical ways of PE IGCSE Theory.

They also participated in modified games to develop transferable skills and personalised learning.

JAWS workshops are available exclusively to FOBISIA member schools and embody the sharing of good practices, collaboration and idea development.

FOBISIA is a regional federation of leading British International Schools in Asia established in 1988. JIS Principal Barnaby Sandow has recently completed a three-year position on the Heads Executive Board of FOBISIA.
