  • Waste of time

    We have only 6 to 7 hours of school and why waste 1hour on PE? We can use it to study...Unless if someone is really REALLY interested in sports then join a sports CCA! We have plenty of free sports ccas in school..Or we can also go for classes as PE dosent teach ALL sports of a students interest!

    Yes, there are people who don't want to be a pro footballer or rugby player when they are older. Students should pursue the subjects they enjoy; if PE is compulsory, it will be less enjoyable and take their focus away from the subjects that they will actually NEED in their future career. Take it from me - I'm a student myself. The obesity problem is something that should be taken care of by individuals and their families. Not EVERYONE is obese.
