Health and Physical Education

Physical strength is the starting point for human activity. It is a basic element that contributes significantly not only to maintaining health but also to improving children’s academic ability as well as their motivation and vigor. The Osaka Prefectural Board of Education is working together with schools, families and communities to promote children’s fitness by holding events such as different types of sports tournaments for elementary schools in order to improve the present situation of reduced opportunities for children to exercise and their declining physical fitness

As well as providing sports facilities intended to be of use in familiarizing residents with sport and improving health, the Osaka Prefectural Board of Education also holds events such as the Prefectural Sports Festival and Osaka Municipalities Sports Tournament. Grounds and other sporting facilities of all prefectural senior high schools and most public elementary and junior high schools are available for use by local residents on weekends.

The Osaka Prefectural Board of Education is laying the foundations for maintaining and improving lifelong mental and physical health, both by means of health instruction for children in schools dealing with matters such as preventing infectious disease and combating drug use, in addition to working together with families to establish children’s dietary and other basic lifestyle habits in order to promote children’s health and fitness. It is also promoting dietary education in schools, by means such as supporting the introduction and promotion of municipal junior high school lunches.

You can contact the municipal authorities for details and other queries of how to apply for school grounds and other sporting facilities on weekends.
