Many of us buy into the universal cliche about PE uniforms, they never fit well, they're uncomfortable, or most commonly, they just don’t look good. At Samueli Academy, some of our students and staff can see beyond the cliche and have suggestions that have the potential to elevate the PE uniform beyond it’s cliche status.
. According to a staff member, Diego Cervantes, “the PE uniform helps kids preserve their own clothing, because during sports you’ll get really sweaty and pretty dirty. So your personal clothes don’t get messed up.” Along with Diego’s statement, if we’re being honest with ourselves, the PE uniform is more comfortable to wear during physical activity than wearing jeans and our normal clothes.
A freshman states,“The color of the uniform is a bit too dark especially since the sun attracts to black”, said Annie Chang.
So if most people had the chance to change the uniform they would. Annie Chang said,”The PE shirt would be light gray [...]. I would add our school mascot onto the shirt [...] school name on the shirt. [...]and the color of the shorts should be a blue color”
The majority of people would complain that the only down side of the PE uniform is that “The shirt could be less heavy and more of an active wear shirt”, said Diego Cervantes. As most people also say that the shirt is too rough. But even if it was optional to wear the PE uniform, there may be a few student that would wear the uniform compared to their personal clothes.
So in the end the PE uniform is not that bad and helps quite a bit and We might just have to wear them to show our school spirit.
