Background: Physical education may be thought of as a special form of education through one’s body which aims not only to fulfil biological purposes, but which also entails significant psychological and social issues. Starting from this point, the aim of the present study is to decrease the number of students exempted from physical education classes by asking them to fill in a survey before each class. Material and methods: The study was conducted in 4 schools from Oradea, over the course of 12 weeks of middle school classes. Results: A visible result was a decrease in the number of students exempted from physical education by 4 to 6 students. Surprisingly, the number of eighth graders exempted from physical education increased. Conclusions: Implementing surveys over a longer period of time would lead to significant results with regards to student attendance at physical education classes.
