Why are Sports and Games such an Important Part of School Life? June 24 2015

Physical education, games and sports in general are now considered to be an essential part of a student's education in schools around the world.

Studies have proved that children can benefit in many ways from participating in regular sports in schools and these can include netball, football and even dancing and swimming.

Apart from the obvious health and well-being benefits, playing sports and participating in games is thought to vastly improve a student’s confidence, mental alertness and self-esteem and is also considered to be a great way to make new friends and, at the same time, encourage team building.

 

Sports day memories

How many of you, I wonder, have memories of School Sports Days from when you were small?

Even from a very early age, children have enjoyed the camaraderie of being part of a team and competing with other children in events such as ‘egg and spoon race’, ‘sack race’ and ‘three legged race’.

Parents and Grandparents are often invited to visit the school on Sports Day to cheer on their children and sometimes even participate themselves by joining in a parent’s race!
