Andrew had his athletics day at Jan Kriel School last Friday and I am so very proud of him!
At his school the emphasis is on taking part and finishing the race, not on winning and it works very well at building the childrens self confidence. They obviously make a huge fuss of the kids that come first as well!
We have come a long way with Andrew, as he initially wouldn't even take part. The funniest part of the day was in the one race, 4 boys took part and as they took of the front 2 just charged past, and the kid that was coming third turned towards the boy coming fourth and mearily chatted away until they were over the finish line! I thought it was very cute, they obviously had all the parents in histerics!
Certainly no dull and boring moments at their athletics day!
