Bleugh... What's more to say? I hate it!

The class is fine, it's just some of the other students in the class. Not your usual nasty comments, it's actually comments that stick with you and hurt your feelings. I'm usually fine with it, but the past 8 weeks we have been on the Trampolines. There's two trampolines and 25 students. *Sigh* And sometimes 30 more students decide to watch. Oh yeah, and not to forget the ones watching from the theory class.

I go to a sports college. And have to get a GCSE for when I leave, which I think should be optional. But it's only the start of year 10 and I'm already worrying. I've got another year left!

So far, I've been missing every trampoline lesson and have one week left. My next lesson is tomorrow. I have an excuse lined up. But not sure if it's the best thing to do. Everyone is really good at it now, and I'm so nervous. I don't cope well when everyone watches me, I blush, twitch or walk out the room. Do I need to talk to someone about this?

Are you embarassed because people are taunting you about something about your physical self? Or do you just feel uneasy that there are people watching and you might make a mistake?

I had a similar problem to you, went to a language college and had to do tonnes of languages but thing is you have to do them cuz theres not really any getting out of it. Id probably get your parents to talk to the school tho see if you can not do trampolining, would probably work :)

yeah you could get your parents to talk to your teacher but thats as long as you would do all the other pe! because for your GCSE (if its the same as our sports college) you have to choose four specific sports that you would like to be graded in! so if you dont want to do it in your exam and you are really worried about it they might let you off if you explain to them! hope that made sense!

Hi hun, in P.E. it is hard to build up your confidence, especially when you're a gal and concious of your body! I think if you go to trampolining (believe me its lots of fun when you get into it!) and keep at it. You don't have to try any of the difficult jumps/landings etc at first, if you fall or stumble (i do all the time when we have to go on the trampolines :oops: ) have a laugh about it and have another go! Build up your confidence slowly but surely. Also try and relax and enjoy it! Hope this helps :)

Dont worry about it when your older high school will seem silly. i havent left yet but it is the thing that keeps me going. So what if you think you look stupid or if your not comfortable with people watching you im sure they feel just as silly. i once had to go to a trampolining class because i thought it would be a great way to get fit and it is but i felt realy self concious in front of everyone bouncing up and down lol. This should not stop you getting your gcse if you want it and if you dont then if you pass it wil be a bonus! good luck honey :P xxx

Ask yourself this:
When you are in a P.E. class, standing at the sidelines watching whoever is on the trampoline, do you think they look silly?

Chances are, nobody thinks you look daft. You all have to get up there and do the same things after all.

When I was at school I constantly felt that people were laughing at me, staring at me and talking about me.

It's now been nearly 10 years since I left school and now I've been in touch with a load of my old classmates through Friends Reunited, it turns out that I was actually really envied at school and loads of people have said things like "I was always scared to talk to you because you seemed so clever and confident!"

I really, really wish I'd known this at the time because my school life would have been so much nicer!! So next time you think someone is laughing at you, chances are either that they're not, or that they are jealous of you. I know you've probably heard it before but it really is true, believe me!

Oh, and trampolining is GREAT fun if you just relax, have a laugh and enjoy it. If you fall over, so what? Get up, laugh, and start bouncing again!! (Good advice for life in general too!!)

My school is really into sport in a big way too, and I have to do trampolining too. It sucks, everyone watches you i know, i know. But you know what? Everyone else is just as self concious as you, noone likes being watched and you have to just laugh at yourself. Maybe you could speak to the teacher and tell him/her how you are feeling and he/she could maybe give you some tips? goodluck hun xx

just remember every1 is in the same boat as you, and every1 has to stand up there and do the exact same thing thats you have to do, and if some people in the class are really good and you feel coparatively rubbish (for want of a better word) just remember you gotta start somewhere and they were once in your shoes

hope this helps
