Physical Education is a waste of time

    Here don't you think PE is a bit of a farce or that it is irrelevant to your subjects/syllabus. Personal for me in my school, we are required to do 2 periods of the horrendous stuff and it hasn't made a real difference! According to the Education Scotland webpage it tells me that it is only compulsory up to S4. I find it ridiculous that i have to do this crap when i am in S5 going into S6. (If you are asking im not the smartest, but i am just making a valid point)

    In England, we are required to have an hour a week after Year 10 (the year before GCSES), and i spend most of it talking or playing games on my phone on a cold field wearing shorts.

    Many agree, but it is here to stay

    Hahaha lets hope the educational reforms by the SNP in Scotland chane the PE rule. End of discussion!

    We don't need to do it in S5 unless you choose it. It's a complete waste of time you get 50 minutes twice a week and it takes at least 10 minutes at the beginning and end for everyone to get changed and the equipment to get out. I "forgot" my kit most of the time and when I did participate I just stood at the side mostly. A lot of kids in my school take PE it too seriously and would get irritated with me during team sports.

    Have you heard about the SNP's plan for a mile a day?
    Lets hope this never happens!!
