exercise in school
Some people think that students should concentrate to study at school. Others think that students need to take some physical exercise in every school day. If asked, both groups will provide logical reasons to substantiate their assertions. I am personally convinced that physical exercise should be included in school program for following reasons.
First, offering physical exercise by school is essential for students’ health. Nowadays, children are not likely to play outside since many inner activities like video games or computer are developed. As a result if there are no sports classes, some students never take exercise. In addition, the lack of exercise makes children fat and it might cause some disease. Therefore, school should force children to get some exercise. As this explanation shows, providing physical exercise by school is important for students’ health.
Second, taking physical exercise has good effects on studying. For example, in the year when I took the university entrance examination, I spent almost ten hours on studying everyday. However, I could not keep my concentration for long time. At that time, I went jogging and refreshed myself. Then I could return to my study and focus it better than before. As this example illustrate, taking some exercise makes students be able to study efficiently.
Third, exercising should be made the custom when people are young. The lack of exercising is a big problem among adults too. In order to prevent it, people should be accustomed to exercising and should believe that exercising is enjoyable. Schools can archive this purpose by setting physical exercise as a everyday task and making it attractive for children. Therefore, I suggest that schools should incorporate exercise into school problems.
In conclusion, while some people argue that physical exercise is not necessary in school classes, I think that exercise classes are required for students. First, providing physical exercise by school is important for students’ health. Second, taking physical exercise has good effects on studying. Third, schools make efforts to get children to be used to everyday exercise and do not feel it is bothering. That is why I firmly believe that school should give children opportunities to take physical exercise.
