CCE workshop: Improve Concentration in Sport

Date: 13 January 2018

"Things only become a distraction when you allowed them” ~Terry Orlick

13 coaches attended the workshop on how to improve one’s concentration in sport conducted by Dr Zason Chian, a lecturer with the Physical Education and Sports Science (PESS) Academic Group at National Institute of Education (NIE). Zason is also a Management Committee Member of Singapore Physical Education Association (SPEA).

Zason introduced scenarios that were practical and exercises that can be learnt easily by coaches as well as their athletes. The participants were fully engaged and participated actively during the entire workshop. Feedback from the participants again showed that workshops conducted by SPEA are relevant and well-received, with all learning objectives met.

PE Pioneers' Reunion 2017

It was an honour for SPEA to support the organising of the PE pioneers' reunion dinner at Seletar Country Club on 29 September 2017. More than 200 pioneers of the PE community gathered for the first time in our history, making it an unforgettable evening that brought together pillars of our PE legacy.


The night started with welcome speeches and sharings from distinguished guests including our Guest of Honour, Director General of Education Mr Wong Siew Hoong.


All formality was done away with as our predecessors went from table to table catching up with old classmates, colleagues, and even teachers. Touching images were seen at every turn as 'generations' of PE teachers filled the air with nostalgia and joy from the reunion.



    As the night went by, our passionate and talented PE Pioneers lived up to their reputation as they took centre stage to share with us their many talents.


  The night concluded with many relunctant goodbyes and anticipation for the next reunion. We would like to thank all friends who were present at the dinner, as well as the organizing committee making the dinner a roaring success.
