Gym classes provide students with physical exercise on a consistent basis. It is particularly important for the physical well-being of children who do not engage in physical activities outside of school. A good physical education class will feature activities that raise the heart rate, increase the pulse rate and rev up metabolism. Physical education helps kids strengthen their coordination
The social aspect of gym class should not be overlooked. Physical education class is often the only time of day in which kids can talk, laugh and play with one another without breaking school rules. The atmosphere is also one in which children can learn important social cues that will help them interact with others successfully.
Physical activity can increase cognitive abilities. Students who are physically fit are generally more alert and receptive to learning. Physical education stresses the importance of self-discipline and goal setting. These two skills are easily transferable into the classroom.
So with all the abundance in benefit, the fulcrum to healthy living is provided by Gym Classes at our school premises.
