Spirit of Sport - 2009 Inner Flame Igniting Motivation

Yesterday is one of the many special days in my little girls life at school. She is in grade one at The Apple International School in Dubai. It was their annual sports day which was held at the Dubai Police Stadium in Garhoud.
The many benifits of sports to children includes a fun and enjoyable experience that motivates them more to participate, next to it is that it provides the arena for youth to be physically active. Letting our kids participate in sports related activity keeps them away from sedentary pursuits such as televsion watching and this can translate to a healthier lifestyle both now and in the future.
Being physically active provides important health benifits such as good body composition(less body fat) stronger bones, greater mascular strength and better endurance.

Participation gives youth the opportunity to learn a variety of motor and sports related skills such as running, jumping, kicking, throwing and many more.

When a child is both psychologically and physically ready to participate, it can give a child an opportunity to develope self-competence in their skills, self esteem and moral competence. It also helps them to learn social skills and make friends. They also learn to work with a team.

With so many benifits that sports can bring to Lanna's life, we are so supportive of her school activities. Now, I would love to share with you some snaps of the event.
