Physical Education is a course taught in school that focuses on developing fitness and the ability to perform and enjoy day-to-day physical activities with ease. Kids also develop skills necessary to participate in a wide range of activities such as soccer, basketball and swimming.
According to the Ministry of Education and National Planning of Physical Education and Recreation, â€œThe aim of physical education must be to make every child physically, mentally and emotionally fit and also to develop in him such personal and social qualities as well as help him to live happily with others and build him up a good citizen.â€
Regular physical education classes prepare kids to be physically and mentally active , fit and healthy into adulthood. An effective physical education program should include engaging lessons, trained physical education teachers, adequate instructional periods and student evaluation.
Physical Education develops fitness and fosters the desire for lifelong participation in physical activities. Physical education classes teach the health benefits of regular exercise and healthy food choices along the risk of inactivity and poor diet.
Physical Education also helps students to develop social skills. For example team games help them learn to respect others, contribute to a goal and socialize as a productive member of a team.
It is rightly said : â€œSports do not build a character, But they reveal itâ€
A healthy nation is always a wealthy nation. Therefore it is necessary to put emphasis on it.
Sports are the sources of recreation of oneâ€™s life. They provide relief and a sense of relaxation in a personâ€™s life full of hardships, miseries and hurdles.
