I am no good at sport. Given the choice, I would teach almost any other lesson than PE. So my worst nightmare has happened- tomorrow is World Cup Day at school, and I am spending the entire day with various classes doing sporting things up on the field!
We have to dress in ‘sports kit’ – and I don’t have anything*. My good friend Zara [Special Olympics Gold Medallist] has kindly called round with some cricket gear. I just have shortened the trousers and tried on the outfit.
They talk about “the slimming power of black clothes” – well white obviously has the opposite effect!
I am hoping that some of the Jurenko Sporting Skill will rub off as I wear these clothes, and tomorrow won’t be as bad as I fear.
*I mentioned my dilemma to a pupil at my other school yesterday, and he said “Can’t you go in your biking leathers, Miss?” but we decided I might collapse from heat exhaustion after ten minutes in the sun.
