Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Interview candidate 1: Year 10 Interviewer Interviewee What made you choose P.E as a G.C.S.E subject? Because I enjoy it. What aspects of P.E do you enjoy? Football and Water polo. Why do you like football and Water polo? Umm, it is practical and I enjoy playing football as I play for a team out of school, and water polo is probably my strongest area as I have been selected to play for England under 16. Oh, congratulations! Thanks. What is your impression on the theory in P.E? I actually enjoy it. Why you say 'actually' enjoy it? Eh, because normally many people think of theory as being boring and all thier interested in is the practical side, but I enjoy both. Why? I like to know the body's composition and how everything works, and because I am training quite a lot it benefits me knowing what my body is doing and how to improve. Are your parents involved in sport? Yes, both of parents love sport. My father was an Olympic athlete and that is my ambition to become one myself. How have your parents influenced you in P.E and sport? Well they have always stressed to me that my education is important. My first impression of P.E was playing sport like we mainly did in years 7,8 and 9. Was there with no theory? ...read more.

Which obviously paid off. Do you represent the school for any sporting events? Yes, water polo, cricket, football and most recently athletics running the 800meters. Brilliant, which Wilson's is now in the next round of the English schools competition. Thank you very much for your time and help with my study. If I think of anything else to ask I will let you know if that's ok? Yeah, no problem. Thanks, bye. See ya. Interview candidate 2: Year 8 Interviewer Interviewee Do you enjoy P.E? It's ok. What do you like and don't like about P.E? I don't like practicals especially swimming and running. I hate cross-country. Why don't you like them? Dunno, I don't get on well with Mr. Wood he's always shouting at me. I had a roar with him in the first year as I didn't want to do cross-country and my dad ended up coming in and a having a word, ever since then me and Mr. Wood don't get on. What are your parent's attitudes towards your involvement in P.E? Well dad says that P.E is just to get some exercise, but doesn't see how there is a future for me in sport. My mother feels that I should give everything my best shot. I do enjoy football and rugby though. Do your parents play sport? Eh, no my dad doesn't really like doing too much, he's always on the computer at home. ...read more.

Conclusion

No. Probably not? Why? Because my parents don't think that P.E doesn't holds good prospects for getting a job when I leave. Although it depends on what else is in the options as I do enjoy it. Are you involved in P.E extra-curriculum? My mum and dad work a lot so when I leave school, I go straight around my nanny's house, so I don't have time to attend. Are you involved in any sports outside school? I used to attend Croygas tennis club when I was younger, but not now. I go down the park with some of my friends on an occasion that's about it at the moment. Thank you very much for your time if I think of anything else to ask then I will get in touch is that ok? Yes, ok, thanks.
