There are many Higher Secondary Schools situated in far-flung area of Jammu Division where students have been blessed with good health by the Nature and thus they take extra interest in games and sports. This is evident from the fact that students of Govt. higher Secondary School Budhal had won zonal level sports competitions so many times and even on some occasion the students had also won the district level competition . It is only due to this reason that general public and the parents had been projecting the demand for creation of post of Lecturer in Physical Education for higher Secondary School Budhal.
Since the students of this far-flung area who enjoy good health but have basic weakness in Acadic subjects and as compared to Academic subjects physical Education is easy and also it has good scope and more employment opportunities and thus students can also perform well in Physical Education. So on this count creation of post of Lecturer in Physical Education is urgently required to be considered for all the Schools situated in far-flung area in general and Higher Secondary School Budhal in particular .Moreover since a sound mind lies in a sound body and in order to maintain good health by the students it is necessary to provide them ample of opportunities of playing different games and sports . When posts of Lecturer in Physical Education would have been created for this School then students will get a chance of opting it as fifth subject and then while performing practical students will get more chances of playing different games under the abled guidance of Lecturer in Physical Education.
It is also a well established fact that in a play field a student gets more chance of learning values like tolerance, patience, mutual cooperation ,importance and power of unity , team spirit , qualities of leadership etc .Thus creation of post of Lecturer in Physical Education is necessary from this point of view also.
When a students plays in the play field then all the parts of his body function properly and thus he become a healthy person and consequently an intelligent person.
Importance of physical Education will also become evident from the following factors:
Strength: It means the ability to contract , and only the muscles contract. So strength refers to the contraction of muscles. when they contract they become stiff. In this way a player become able to use the rigidity and weight of other parts of the body .strength is the amount of force it can be generated by contraction. Strength depends on the length and thickness of muscles. Thus it becomes clear that as the muscles of a player become stronger and stronger then the player become a more healthy person.
Speed: It is the rate of contraction of muscles . when muscles are stronger the speed is more which can be increased by practice of games and sports.
Power: It is capacity to do any work . This power is released by muscular contraction. Muscular contraction increase with throwing , lifting, pulling, etc.Thus with the help of games and sports power of a student increases.
Flexibility: It is the ability to move body segments to a full range as joints can move .This depends on the muscles around the body segment and types of joints of body segments. It can be increased by stretching the muscles.
Reaction time: It is time taken to react to a stimuli. Hearing power of player is more .He can hear to a sound more quickly then a common person who is not player.
Co-ordination: It is ability to use different set of muscles and different body segments in a harmonious pattern. This co-ordination increases with the increase of age and experience in the play field.
Balance: This is ability to maintain position of the body. This is also called stability. A player is always more stable and he has ability to control his body as balance and co-ordination are inter-related.
Endurance: It is abilty to do hard work for a longer period. There are two types of endurance. Cradio respiratory endurance also contributes to fitness. Both the respiratory and circulatory mechanism must be able to perform a hard work continuously-over a period of time. The other endurance is muscular endurance. The muscles and nerves must be in such a condition that both can perform a hard work over a long period of time.
All the above listed qualities are available in a player and can be increased with the increase of age and experience in the games and sports. Thus in order to churn healthy, strong and genius students for the future of a strong Nation it is necessary that posts of Lecturer in Physical Education for all the remaining Higher Secondary Schools may be created for all the higher Secondary Schools of union territory of Jammu and Kashmir in general and for Higher Secondary School Budhal in particular keeping in view need of students, demand of the parents and importance of physical Education Subject for the Society as a whole.This article has been written in the interest of Society in order to highlight a genuine issue of important nature and its earliest redressal from the August hands of concerned authorities of Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
