PE- Come on, own up!

Postby k9ruby » Sun Feb 10, 2008 4:05 pm

Now that I no longer do this dreaded subject, and out of being "found out" by my PE teachers who thought I was a quiet, unsuspecting , comitted student, I thought it would be fun to share excuses ( and possibly recycle them? Hehe) that you have used...

1) The classic: I forgot my kit (try not to do this 3 weeks in a row like I did)
2) My PE kits missing: (actually hidden behind a bin, in utter me!) - go 'looking' for it, take up half the lesson, ta-da you get out of it...)
3) I need to revise (for a exam next week, oviously don't tell them this)
4) I need to revise (for a non existant exam, but everyone else seems to be taking it....the shame :P )
5) Lastly, A certain incident let me go to the fitness suite instead of bloody athletics (sorry) lets say it involved a sharp javilin, and 5 pe teachers + 5 near misses, which might not have been too pretty = I got unofficially banned for health and safety :P The look on my TAs faces when I tell them that :P

Oh- wait!

6) Using sick note 3 times in a row (try to rub out the date!)


Of course, physical exercise is important for a healthy lifestyle... :P

Of course! I don't do it at all now because I'm waiting to get my back checked by the doctor. I've already seen the heart and eye specialists. They say I should be fine doing PE but I say it best to be on the "safe side" :wink:

Every week, just before my P.E lesson in year 6, I would feign an illness or injury to try and get out of it. My teacher said she wouldn't believe me unless my parents wrote her a note. I put this into consideration and I typed a letter pretending to be my Mum going on about how injured I was and how cruel the school would be if they forced me to take part. Sadly, my teacher never believed me but she did see the funny side.

I actually never tried to get out of PE, I knew it would be totally useless even attempting. However I did have some good strategies for making it look like I was doing something in PE when I really wasn't

However I did have good PE teachers who were actually quite nice to me and encouraged me, it helped that I'd known one of them since I was about three

Aha, PE was the only thing I ever skived off in school. The best lesson was when someone turned the showers on, and we weren't allowed to leave the changing rooms until someone owned up...and no-one did. The teachers finally gave in, but the lesson was almost over :)

My last ever PE lesson (not counting aerobics which was much easier), my friend and I spent the whole time messing around to get own back. We stood next to each other and passed the basketball between us until somone pratically punched it out of our hands.

I never deliberately tried to get out of PE, and forgetting my kit wouldn't have worked for anything other than swimming (they kept spare). I stopped doing PE in year 11 though as my hip kept playing up and it was painful even to walk, never mind do other stuff. I had a letter from the hospital saying I couldn't do it though :)

I've never managed to skip PE at my secondary school, but I used to do it all the time in year 6!

My teacher thought that everyone loved PE, (she always said, "PE is not a right, it's a privilege") so she would sometimes make people miss it as a punishment! I was also naturally behind in art and things like that, so I convinced her that I should stay during PE, to finish it.

Oddly enough, the thought of skiving PE never occurred to me-I even volunteered to do Sports Day races and kept on going even when I was the only one still left on the circuit! I must love punishing myself or something! :lol:

Wow, I wish my PE teachers were like that! The problem is with my PE teachers is that they have very big egos.
