Department of Science Technical and Vocational Education to set up a Gymnasium

The Department of Science, Technical and Vocational Education will soon launch a gym and is currently in the process of equipping it. This was announced by the Chair DSTVE, Dr Henry Busulwa during the physical education and aerobics display by students of DSTVE and Sports Science on 2nd May. The gym will be open to students and staff of the University. He added that the Department had also introduced a Master of Science Education in Physical Education. With their feet in the air, the students exercised to the beat of powerful music showcasing a variety of aerobic styles and skills. These included; basic aerobic skills, basics of educational gymnastics, salsa dancing, and the basics of gymnastics.

These exercises can be done to improve physical fitness, health and well-being without attending sporting facilities. They can be performed as an individual or with a team. Dr Busulwa was impressed with the quality of work on display and thanked the students for choosing to do Physical Education and Sports Science courses. He added that Physical Education is a compulsory subject in secondary school and the ministry is currently developing tools to examine it. The event will be made bigger and better next year. Below are links to the photos and videos from the day.
