In sup­port of PE

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport -

Tim Wig­more was right to point out the demise of school sport, par­tic­u­larly in state schools (Sept 21). As a for­mer prep school head, I recog­nise the pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion reg­u­lar PE and games lessons had on the all-round per­for­mance of the pupils.

Reg­u­lar fix­tures against other schools taught the par­tic­i­pants how to win with grace and lose with dig­nity. The na­tion’s chil­dren would ben­e­fit hugely from reg­u­lar phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion and games lessons.
