Last week I went to a ‘poor’/township primary school to help a mate with his masters research (fitness levels of kids). (Ok, how do I explain ‘township’… It’s like a poor city outskirts area). I’ve been to a few though.
It was interesting. Because it’s a poor area in KZN (province) the vast majority of the kids were black. Ok, all of them. And I was the only white person there. So of course I had some attention and stares and giggles.
We just did agility tests, jump heights, push ups, sit ups, height and weight, etc. About 100 kids in 3 hours. And then a free chicken burger meal at Nando’s :P
Going with him again to help out with questionnaires tomorrow.
