Hubby got this email from a friend today.
I witnessed my 5 year old grandson's "school non-competitive sports day"
today. What a total fiasco!
No races, of course, they're competitive. The activities for these
unfortunate sprogs consisted of sitting in circles on the grass and passing
a Bean bag around the circle. This is seen as team-work, I was told.
Competitions of any sort are barred since "somebody would lose and may be
disappointed." Seriously, that's what I was told by the head-teacher, who
added "that's the curriculum now"!!!
