Why PE for Children?
Children sit in class for 8 hours a day, 10 months a year for 13 years of school. Such routine is detrimental to their physical and mental health. They need to be constantly on the move, indulging in physical activity for at least every twenty minutes is necessary.
Our children’s lives are structured in a way which reduces their time to play. A child needs AT LEAST 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous PHYSICAL ACTIVITY every day. Childhood inactivity results in diseases, mental dullness and stress. Low physical and mental health impacts every area of life.
Why PE in School?
Teaching PE in school is more scalable because children spend a major portion of their active time at school. It is here where they engage in peer-to-peer learning and are most cooperative and active. Teaching PE in school strengthens peer relationships, improves academic performance, enhances cooperation with others, and helps set achievable goals.
PE helps improve mental function and perform better in academics! It strengthens and stimulates the brain. Active children are stronger and have a better mental function.
