A group of students and parents walked to school today. The parent’s comment was the chatting that happened among the children during the walk/run was: “Such wise stories!”
It would be interesting to see how the early walk impacted on their work and behaviour today.
We know that children benefit from physical activity and when we add to this camaraderie, some independence mixed with a dash of self-awareness, we get magical results. The children describe this type of event as FUN.
We understand that time is poor and not many parents live in close proximity to school; however making time to stop our running and partake in occasional outdoor activities, reminds all that we have a wonderful planet and we are part of it. Children need to be in nature and experience sensorially: both body and mind meet and grow. We talk about caring for environment and this can only happen if we know and love our environment.
