Staying Healthy and Happy with Sports
Are you waiting with bated breath for the weather to get a little warmer so you can go out and do some sports? In Bangladesh, the weather is hot enough – currently around 34°C (93°F). But the kids don’t mind, and the Monoshapara boarding school held the popular Sports Days from 24 to 25 February 2016. Among participants were not only children and students, but also the school staff, the motto being “Sports for everyone”. There were many traditional events – 100 to 400-meter dashes, the long jump, handball or soccer tournaments, etc. – as well as non-traditional competitions – dressing in saris or climbing banana trees for boys and men, and walking with plates on their heads for girls. One of the highlights came with the costume competition, another when participants staged short scenes. You can go through the pictures and have a look at the children having fun. It’s worth seeing!
