Connecting local responses around the world
She stood there in the middle of the gym, disengaged, as the other fifty grade 5 and 6 students swirled around her.
I tried to encourage her to join in with this organised chaos but she wasn’t interested. Her 10-year old body and tense brow indicated she wanted to be elsewhere.
I was puzzled. It was the fourth session of my ‘Pozitive Kidz are happy kidz’ program and she was still disengaged.
