Dutch School Activities: Physical Education

Figure 1.--This photo postcard shows a Dutch gym class in the 1950s. Ithink the group is throwing the one boy up in the air. The boys seem to be weating their regular shorts nd have taken off their shirts for PE. It was printedv December 14, apperently just before Christmas vacation in 1955. It was taken at an Amnsterdam school. 

We have not been able to find much information about Dutch physical education (PE) We do know that there are PE programs in both primary and secondary schools. Swimming is part of the program in most sdchools. Some schools include ice skating. Dutch sdchools do not have school uniforms, but some schools have a t-shirt for PE.
