Physical and Health Education also known as PHE is a subject taught in Junior secondary schools and higher institutions in Nigeria. For the sake of this post, we shall be focusing on Physical and Health Education as subject offered in Junior secondary schools with regards to the government approved scheme of work for PHE JSS 1 first term to third term.
What is Physical and Health Education? This is a subject taught in both from primary school up to higher institutions that is focused on the development of the human physical fitness and well-being.
This post will intimate teachers of the government approved scheme of work for Physical and Health Education (in Junior secondary school 1, that is, JSS 1 first term, second term and third term. It provides in clear terms, what is expected by WAEC as a body in preparing pupils for Physical and Health Education in their Junior West African Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WAJSSCE).
Ideally, the scheme of work for Physical and Health Education for JSS 1 first term, is a continuation from the scheme of work for Physical and Health Education (PHE) in Primary school, the scheme of work otherwise known as Curriculum has been systematically arranged for ease of progression and proper understanding for students in JSS 1. There has to be a flow, that is, a continuation from the previous class in order for students to better understand the subject.
Inline with the directive from the ministry of education, it is adamant that all Junior secondary schools in Nigeria operate using the same scheme of work whether it is a private secondary school or public (government owned) junior secondary school. The ministry of education in order to align with the demands of WAEC as a body, makes compulsory the submission of the government approved scheme of work for all subjects offered in Junior and senior secondary school as parts of the requirements for approving the operation or license to run a secondary school in Nigeria.
What a scheme of work is? Simply, a scheme of work is defined as a guideline that defines the contents and structure of academic subjects. The scheme of work for secondary schools in Nigeria, whether Junior or Senior secondary school, maps out in clear terms, how the topics and subtopics for a particular subject, group works and practicals, discussions and assessment strategies, tests, quizzes, homework and even up to midterm breaks for the academic session ought to be structured in order to fit in perfectly, the approved academic activities for the session.
To further emphasize the importance of this document, the scheme of work is the complete guide on all academic activities enforced by the Federal government of Nigeria through the ministry of education on all Junior secondary schools in Nigeria as it relates not just to the subjects but the academic session as a whole. It is used to ensure that the learning purposes, aims and objectives of the subject meant for that class are successfully achieved.
For example, the scheme of work for PHE JSS 1 (Junior Secondary School one) is the same for both private and public secondary schools in Nigeria, that is, the scheme of work for a private school is the same with that of public or government owned secondary schools, principals and teachers in secondary schools in Nigeria are to adhere to the approved scheme of work as mandated by the ministry of education as a move against this could spell sanctions from the government.
The importance of this subject cannot be overemphasized, this is one of the few courses that is offered from Primary school to the university level. Physical and Health Education (P.H.E) is one of the most interesting subjects because it applies to real life activities, teaches you on important daily diets and recommended exercise for various parts of the body for keeping fit. The scheme of work provided here would go a long way in not just helping the teachers in carefully breaking down the subject, topics and subtopics but also, devise more practical ways of imparting the practical knowledge on the students since P.H.E is a mixture of theory and practical, indoor and outdoor activities.
From our observations, the search for the government approved curriculum or scheme of work for P.H.E in Junior secondary has been on the rise, reason being that it is one of the most important subjects offered in Junior secondary schools in Nigeria. It is also an important admission requirements for admission into any higher institution in Nigeria.
