More than 150 learners from Elsies River gave a resounding welcome to the 7th Kellogg’s Health of the Nation 50-Hour Sports Challenge Cape Town edition with the first of the pre-event road shows kicking off at the Norwood Central Primary School on Monday afternoon.
For a couple of hours they got their limbs moving and their hearts racing, in line with the Department of Sport and Recreation’s plans to reintroduce Physical Education to the mainstream curriculum. Not only was the afternoon a lively affair, but, much to our satisfaction, many girls were active participants – running around as much as the boys, sometimes cheering and shouting with more gusto!
It was not for nothing, this exercise, as the learners were excited about the upcoming 50-Hour Sports Challenge. As they received their refreshments after the two hour session, they were heard asking about the weekend, with many keen to know when “Elsies” were scheduled to be at the Western Cape Sport School and where their pick-up was. We look forward to seeing them there on Friday!
Thanks to Kellogg’s, Kia Motors, Virgin Active, City of Joburg, SA fm, Good Hope fm, and Supersport Let’s Play for their continued support as we take the message of healthy living to the nation’s children.
