    Teachers know how much their students benefit from activity

    Day 347

    More Sports, Please!

    A pickup game of basketball, soccer, or football is one of the best ways to bond with friends – especially for kids. Whether it’s getting out there and moving your body, or meeting new people, sports have a special way of bringing everyone together.

    The teachers of Kabahinda Primary School know how powerful group sports can be for their students. So they had a simple request.

    More sports!

    “Sports for teachers and students are important,” said the head teacher Edgar. “When they’re active, their minds are calm. When they play outside, they come back to class and think more clearly.”

    Now, both the students and teachers will be able to calm their minds with volleyball, badminton, and soccer!

    These teachers are such superheroes. Even in their requests for themselves, they are focused on making sure it can benefit their students. What a great example to the next generation they’re helping to grow!
