In the new school year, the Director General will continue to direct the implementation of the overall plans of the education sector as well as the project 1076/QD-TTg, adapting to the situation of the COVID-19 epidemic, ensuring safe and high-quality teaching and learning.
During the preparation period, the Conference received 14 articles full of enthusiasm, wisdom, and responsibility from agencies, units, and individuals throughout the country. At the Conference, three articles were presented, focusing on the following contents: (1) Strengthening the school health network and improving the capacity of school medical staff; (2) The current situation and basic solutions for the development of physical education and sports in the current situation; (3) The reality of organizing the teaching of the subject of Physical Education according to the needs and interests of learners. The presentations clearly presented the problems in physical education activities in the local as well as the whole country, and suggested solutions and initiatives, in order to achieve the goals set out in the school year as well as ensuring the all-round development of students.
The conference is an opportunity for officials working in physical education, sports activities, and school health to have the opportunity to meet, exchange experiences, contribute ideas, propose effective solutions to improve the quality of sports activities, physical education and development of the young generation.
