Physical education in Schools has many health benefits-Dr.K.Govindaraju

SEVAI Shanthi Higher Secondary school physical education classes
Physical education has long been a staple in schools and beyond, with all students required to participate in some form of physical education. Physical education provides children with an opportunity to exercise during the day. It gives children early exposure to team sports, and promotes good physical fitness.  Children who participate in physical education get a workout, and they also learn the importance of exercise as a lifelong habit. Physical education is clearly an important course in schools, with many benefits for children. In addition to helping kids learn healthy habits, physical education can also increase learning by getting the blood flowing and increasing oxygen levels, which promote concentration. Physical education is extremely important and should be protected in schools. Children who take PE classes at school may also be able to use those classes as a springboard to become interested in joining a team sport. Sports increase the awareness of health and the need to take care of the body. Sports also give kids a positive outlook. Children must have a healthy body, spirit and mind and physical health does not only mean without having any disease but also having a body that is flexible, coordinated and strong. Children who are in between three to four years old maybe physically healthy but as they grow older and spend hours just sitting in their class with their schoolwork, they tend to be unhealthy and inactive due to lack of physical activity. Physical education is necessary because it is a fact that there is an increasing health risks involved because of being overweight and inactive. Why physical education is important is a question a lot of people ask and it is vital to know that physical education plays an important role in the overall well-being of a child. It is because of the fact that physical education can help children improve their physical fitness and nurture positive attitudes. Physical education can provide children different skills that they can enjoy and help them know the importance of exercise as well as the association between physical health and overall well-being. Physical education has many health benefits and one of these is its effect on physical fitness including cardiovascular stamina, flexibility, coordination and strength. Physical education can also improve the mood and increase attention of children. In addition, children can learn teamwork, sportsmanship and tolerance for others. They can also be exposed to different kinds of physical activities such as running, swimming, gymnastics and other sports that can benefit them in the future.-Govin
