Creating exciting movement
Acknowledging the necessity of PE innovation in school, Luc Ngan High School added the traditional martial art and dance into the regular activities in this academic year. On the break after two lessons in every morning, more than 1,700 students line up in order to practice 45 actions of the traditional martial art.
To date, 80 percent of the school have built facilities for sports activities while there are more than 2,300 clubs of basket ball, volleyball, badminton, traditional martial art, swimming…under frequent operation. All primary schools in the province organise morning exercise, break exercise in a close connection with traditional martial art and dance in daily activities.
Teacher Nguyen Thanh Trung, Vice Head Master shared that to help the students quickly access to the new method of practice, the school not only expedites the group of PE teacher to take regular check and additional training in the PE lessons but also launches a contest of traditional martial art. All the students at the classes are excited to participate in the event to perform the beautiful and strong moves.
Since 2017, the DoET has coordinated with the provincial Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union to hold the programme of “Dancing in school yard” to create a new wind to the PE activities.
“Much different from previous time, nowadays my friends and I always look forward to joining the PE lesson. The simple and strong moves on an exciting music background truly inspire us”, said Bui Thanh Thuy, a student at class 8A, Tan My Secondary School (Bac Giang city).
Under the new educational curriculum, the PE will be a compulsory subject from grade one to grade 12 since 2021.
