Sports Day polemic

Thousands of schools across the country will be holding their annual Sports Day this week. Hundreds of thousands of school children – including children who are academically inclined or perhaps have little ability or interest in sport - will be marched out to damp playing fields where they will be required to spectate and marvel at the athletic prowess of their sporting peers.

This is not necessarily A Bad Thing, but I feel that the school calendar still has space urgently needing to be filled.

I am hoping to arrange a Thoughts Day, when hundreds of thousands of children – including those inclined towards physical activity, or who perhaps have little ability or interest in academic work – will be ushered into dry, dusty libraries and required to spend the afternoon watching their intellectually gifted peers thinking.
