Today was our second day at Grattan school working with four local primary schools.

In today’s classroom lessons we taught the children Philosophy, marketing and anatomy. These subjects are not normally taught at school in the children’s age groups so it was something new for them to be introduced to. They really enjoyed the lessons and had a lot of fun.Students teaching the kids in South Africa

In addition to teaching them leadership skills in organisation, planning, communication and motivation the sport we led was rugby. Teaching rugby to such a huge group of children was daunting and challenging at times, however the children responded well and were able to all play touch rugby matches by the end of the session with everyone getting involved.

After the session finished, some of the kids stayed around to play football with us – unfortunately beating us with a golden goal! Getting to know the children by playing with them in break times and after the sports sessions has definitely been my highlight of the trip!
