Physical fitness is important for a growing child. Being unfit from a young age can lead to health problems further down the line. But I’m guessing you didn’t put this on quora to get the same cliche answer. Physical activity is also important not because it prevents bad things from happening but also because it releases hormones which positively affect us. Besides some people are good at or love sports and making physical activity necessary can help those people realise and pursue their passion.

Because physical education covers things that other subjects neglect to teach. Although subjects like science, math, english e.t.c teach skills that will be important for a whole host of different careers and while PE is only said to have skills limited to those more physical careers (sports industry e.t.c), the skills learnt in PE can be beneficial for Everybody.
Obviously, PE teaches you alot about the body/health. You can use this knowledge to improve your understanding of health and well-being/self esteem, physically improve performance or you can simply learn to develop a sense of enjoyment through movement. Knowing how to keep your body in good knick, especially as you get older, is important to a functional and happy life (in most cases). PE also gives you the oppurtunity to work in groups and overcome both physical and mental challenges. Leadership qualities are often easy to assess in students within a PE class, as it takes alot of strength to negotiate the contradictions between the competitive and co-operative nature of the subject.
There is also the argument that PE should be used to address social concerns related to health (obesity e.t.c) although, this should be done for educative as opposed to political purposes.
Physical Education is “education” of the body. In the United States, it refers to what we call “gym” classes where you exercise, swim, play games or learn how to play some sports. It is a requirement inmost schools unless there is a medical reason not to have to take it.

The circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, nervous and endocrine systems. The immune, integumentary, skeletal, muscle and reproductive systems are also part of the human body taught in Phys-ed.
From this knowledge can stem flexibility, strength, agility, balance, coordination, cardiovascular fitness, camaraderie, and even history and culture related to sports and it’s history such as the Olympics and can date back thousands of years.
Further, team work, self-development and even practical skills like situational awareness, how to listen to instructions from a coach, or swimming, as we have many bodies of water in Australia, rivers, lakes and beaches.
