Abstract

Teachers' knowledge had a great influence on the implementation of any policies in education. Therefore, this study aims to investigate teachers' knowledge in SSC with regards to gender, teaching experience and locality. It also to examine the benefits and the challenges faced by teachers in the implementation of SSC in selected Primary School. The study involved a total of 12 schools which located in the district of Kuching. A total of minimum of 100 teachers responded to the questionnaire whilst another 12 teachers from urban and rural school were involved in the semi-structured interviews. Data was collected using a questionnaire and semi-structured interviews with the selected teachers by using snowball sampling. Inferential statistics conducted using the independent-samples t-test to investigate teachers' overall knowledge and understanding of School s.port Camp (SSC) whether it was not influenced by gender, school locality or experience. Teachers highlighted that School Sport Camp(SSC) has actually helped improve student involvements and teacher competency in managing the mentioned camp. Nevertheless teachers stressed that the camp had actually increased teacher workload and teachers felt that time constraint was one of their major concern. Taking into consideration these findings, and aligning them with the initiatives of the National Educational Blueprint (NEB), the teachers must be provided with sufficient training by providing continuous professional development (CPD) so that they can be better informed and motivated to see the many benefits of this camp. Such a move could see a more effective implementation of One Student One Sport (I SIS) policy
