I am a product of school games. Way back in the 80’s, schools gave great importance and recognition to sports. Sport was an integral part of our education and a great vehicle for schools to exhibit their team’s performance which instantly brought them into the limelight. It wasn’t only about the team that performed on the field, but the students, teachers and prinicipals showed their interest by joining in to cheer. Unfortunately, over the years the intellect has overtaken all aspects of a child’s development and in the extremely competitive, stressful lives that our children live, sports has been completely excluded from education.
