Abstract

This study examined status quo of physical education and sport in secondary schools in Fiji and the level of confidence in the delivery of the Ministry of Education prescription, as well as issues that affect tertiary curriculum development in this area. Physical educators in 21 secondary schools filled in a questionnaire and three of the respondents were interviewed. The researchers visited schools and made field notes. Responses and field notes were coded for curriculum delivery, external connectivity and influence on curriculum development. Data analysis showed that all sampled secondary schools profess to have physical education, intramural, and inter-school sports; physical education teachers yearn for connectivity, particularly external connectivity; and they strongly support the development of the degree major in the University of the South Pacific.
