Write a letter to a headteacher persuading him/her that all students should take part in at least one hour's physical activity every day.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Dear Headteacher, Can you imagine a school where happiness is due to a beneficial exercise regime? Do you agree that exercise is the key to success? I strongly urge you on behalf of all pupils concerning the school- change is needed. I implore you to transform the timetable so that one hour's fitness is included into everyday life; whether it be a contact sport such a rugby or perhaps an hour of badminton, i cannot stress enough how important it is that physical activity is incorporated within the school's timetable. ...read more.

Vital and imperative, this hour is beneficial as we recieve a much needed and well earned rest and it also aids us to concentrate in the classroom for longer periods of time. I know this because my friend's school in London used this improved timetable and that year the school had their best ever examination results. Brilliant, no? Furthermore, i have no doubt you should heed my advice considering that 60% of the whole natio is deemed obese, therefore it is likely around 720 people attending at the school out of th 1200 statistically should be obese which gives cause for concern. ...read more.

Conclusion

Yet i do recognize your worries. Moreover, i do realize it is a very outlandish timetable and pupils will not get much education out of it. However, i believe, together we can make the hour educational- for example walks can enhance an indivudals written skills, as vivid scenery and picuresque views will be beneficial in writing descriptively. Also background history of the sport can also be deemed as educational. Relaxed. Fit. Succesful. To reiterate, modifying the school's timetable will be quite challenging, on the otherhand, it will enable pupils to enjoy themselves yet still thrive at school simultaneously. And remember: play hard, work harder.... Yours sincerely Lily Porter ...read more.
