The girls gym classes during APG's first year weren't exactly fun. We marched and marched yet more!! And I remember our introduction to sweat pants worn to keep us warm in the drippy, cold fog. Did we ever have gym indoors? I don't remember such. We did feel lucky because noone swore at us. We could hear Mr. Delman cursing loudly at the boys on a regular basis. We assumed that it there an unwritten rule giving gym and shop teachers license to swear at the boys in their classes. Nowdays the kids curse the teachers, and the teachers face reprimand if they do the same. I know--I was an educator in junior and senior highs for many years.
