Hi, I have recently joined a new secondary school (I am in year 10) and unlike my old school, in core P.E, contact rugby is one of the sports that we participate in. Due to my opinions on violence, I will simply refuse to participate in any actions of violence, whether it is for recreational use or not; it is against my morals.
I do not want to seem rude to my teachers and I was wondering if anybody had any ideas on how to approach my teachers and inform them of my views on the subject.
Thanks in advance, Alfie.

I would imagine the general consensus is unless it's a religious or health reason (supported by doctor's note) then you would have to play, but this depends on the school. I mean you could always tell them what you told us but I'm not sure that having an opinion on violence on a contact sport would be a good enough excuse, worth a try though.

It could be passed off as religious due to the pacifistic view?

Just play with as little effort as possible away from the action therefore you won't get hurt

I have no problems getting hurt, but it's when we are told to tackle other people is where the problems occur

Violence???? It's a team sport, not MMA fighting.
