Physical Education in Antigua’s Public Schools

Physical Education in Antigua's Public Schools by Rudy Giron

This photo was taken around the basket ball court of the public school of San Juan del Obispo shown a few days ago in AntiguaDailyPhoto.

At the University of Michigan I came across this summary of why PE is so important:

It is a known fact that physical activity improves overall health. Not only does it improve circulation, increase blood flow to the brain, and raise endorphin levels, which all help to reduce stress, improve mood and attitude, and calm children, physically active students may also achieve more academically.

I would also add the fun factor which is probably the only thing one cares about physical education in school, wouldn’t you agree?
