A neighbour child just starting at Frank Hurt Secondary School recently told me she is desperate to play school sports. But the only ones available are after school and inaccessible to her as she cannot stay after.
I was thinking how many kids would benefit from a lunch-hour league – it doesn’t seem right that all team sports are after hours. I think many kids are not allowed to stay after hours.
She was so upset to be left out of floor hockey, cheerleading, soccer, etc.
With today’s latchkey kids, or those busing or catching rides, it seems impossible to join high school events.
So maybe a teacher can set up a lunch-hour something… and allow all kids to get exercise during school hours with others.
