Mandatory Phys Ed classes for high school students.

This petition had 34 supporters

Due to the fact fast food companies take over our food industry and children start to neglect exercise as they grow up, obesity and being overweight is an ongoing crisis. In Ontario, it is only mandatory to take Phys Ed classes until grade nine, at which point you can stop. Physical Education classes, such as gym or personal fitness should be mandatory for all years of school since there are so many positive benefits that come with them. In Phys Ed classes you gain so much more than a workout. These classes teach skills that are incredibly valuable outside of a classroom such as leadership, teamwork, and adaptability. Having Physical Education classes be mandatory would also help the obesity crisis Canada has found itself in. I hope by signing my petition we can start getting more children more active during the school day.
