At the moment, it looks like we’re losing the fight against inactivity and obesity in our young people. We are raising the most sedentary and unhealthy generation in Kerala history: Its members may have the dubious distinction of being the first generation not to outlive their parents. Meaningful, high-quality Health and Physical Education is one of the best strategies we have to reverse this trend. And, not only does good Health and Physical Education Program increase the chances that our young people will live healthier, more productive life spans, it pays off in the classroom, as well. Physical Education is an integral part of the total education of every child from Kindergarten to Post Graduate level. Quality Physical Education Programs are needed to increase the Physical Competence, Health-related Fitness, Self-responsibility, and Enjoyment of Physical Activity for all students so that they can be physically active for a lifetime. Physical Education Programs can only provide these benefits if they are well-planned and well-implemented with the help of sophisticated facilities. Quality Health and Physical Education Programs can be life-changing for today’s young people and, in many cases, already are. Such programs offer students a well-rounded opportunity to develop their bodies and minds to gain skills that will propel them to success in both the physical and academic aspects of education—and life. Good Health and Physical Education Programs provide the structure and discipline that young people need to perform in academic activities effectively, make positive choices in their lives, persevere to see a project through to the end, and earn the respect of their peers. Our society seems to be struggling with these things. In a short span of time, the Department of Physical Education has established as a reputed and recognized department in our college.
The Department provides many activities for the physical, mental, social and intellectual developments of the students and staff. The department organized short term coaching camps under the auspices of the Directorate of Collegiate Education in Athletics & Kabaddi (2014-15), Handball, Kabaddi & Chess (2015-2016).Govt. College Ambalapuzha has time and again taken top honors in the intercollegiate sports and games Tournaments of Kerala University. The department has coordinating the activities of Yoga and Chess Clubs of our college.
