A key feature of the Physical Education (PE) department is the games elective modules it offers. Students have the opportunity to pick up sports they are interested in, enabling them to acquire the skills needed to play them recreationally in the long term.
With three periods of PE per week, the students are able to increase their competency in the various sports and games, as well as experience competitive play in a friendly environment. This year, students who took the tag rugby and frisbee modules represented Jurongville in inter-school competitions organised by the Singapore Rugby Union and Jurong West Secondary School respectively.
In addition, the department also explored the use of information and communications technology (ICT) in enhancing outdoor teaching and learning. Google forms and Quick Response codes were utilised to teach outdoor cooking, navigation, and essential items needed in a backpack. Feedback from the students showed that the use of ICT helped them to pick up outdoor skills in a fun and interesting way.
