    i think its compulsery to do some kind of PE from years 11 down. My schools just been made a specialist sports college so while i only had one leson i week (i think) the've got 3 lessons or something a week now hahaha.Just think if your in year 10 just another year and a bi of pe (probably not much consolation). Ar't you allowed to choose what sport you want to do. For years 10 and 11 we could choose an option for 6 weeks then keep chaning. I remember one summer me and some of my friends ended up doing cricket and we were so crap but there was nothing the teacher could do about. While all the lads went and had their games, the teacher gave us girls a ball to just chuck about between us. Easiest Pe option ever.

    Oh I don't mind P.E. I just can't stand swimming, especially in school.
    For a start it makes my hair a mess, it is a mess about because there are no cubicals and I don't appreciate being naked in front of other girls and it is just really annoying.

    Besides, as we are having building work done to our school, we have to get changed in mobiles, with NO SHOWERS! So I can't even wash the chlorine off!!!!! How do you like that?

    With so much of the worlds surface covered on the stuff, how can you say you won't miss out by not being able to swim! It would be criminal for me not to encourage my son to learn to swim, apreciate water and respect it else he will end up like many others as another drowning statistic.

    As an activity, swimming huge numbers of lengths has little to commend it apart from competition and pool fitness if you are into that but the skills taught and mastered in lessons, open up all the water born activities which a fear of water will keep you from.
    Scuba Diving, get in and see the fish in their real envorinment rather than in batter on fridays in the school canteen. (PADI [world wide recognised qualifications] require you to be able to swim first)
    Sailing, Kayaking etc a no go for the water phobic amd donlt even try to say a bouyancy aid will save your life, the fear of water prevents anykind of full enjoyment.
    The last is lifeguarding, requiring strong swimming skills but a desire to save life and be confident in your self in and around water.

    Try to raise your eyes form the one hour a week that you see as a bind to the opportunities that you could get to. With a lifeguard qualification I walked into an £6 per hour job paying double for overtime which was a God send given my life at that time. If I had cut swimming classes, not bothered to try then who knows what my life would have sunk to.

    Oh and death by drowning is the best option you non swimmers can hope for when you fall in. Not a plesent thought but then reality often isn't.

    Does that mean we can revolt ?
    Whack a dead horse in the pool about 2 hours before you've got your lesson.
    Then as all you walk in all "loving" the idea of a nice swim, lo and behold there's mr horse floating around like a bit of a sod.
    You all sigh and go Awwwwhhhhhh but i really wanted to go swimming and then promptly leave

    That is unless your teacher is a bit of nut case and thinks out loud "hmmmm, two birds with one stone. A swim and then some lunch....GET TO IT LADS!"

    Thats when you either leg it or if the git has locked the exit doors then bagsy the tongue ASAP

    It can't be compulsory, I had to do it for 8 weeks in year 10,but we were the last year to have to do it, gutted! I think I only actually did it 3 times though, I told the teacher I was on my period the rest of the time, there were too many of us to keep track of how regularly each of us skived off using that excuse. She tried to catch me out once, saying I'd used that excuse the week before, but I'd lied the week before and that week I did actually ahve it! Another cunning trick, because then you can only be punished for lying the week before!

    We got to do more fun things in year 11 tho, I did trampolining almost constantly, it was great, you spent most the lesson standing round the edge of the trampoline and got about 2 one minute goes where you just bounced about abit!

    We never did swimming at all (thankfully, as i can't swim).
    But we did bowling, Weight training etc., not even as part of a PE course, just as an extra school thing.
