    Default School bans handstands....wdyt?

    Schools are getting ridiculous these days, I understand some things have been caused by complaining parents but jeez!
    Just like that school last week that has banned all ball games, when will people let kids be kids!?

    Handstands and cartwheels were one of my favourite lunch time activities at primary school.

    Sigh.

    It's unfortunate, but it's not worth the school taking the risk of being sued if a child seriously injures themselves.

    Hopefully children can still do it on an appropriate surface under supervision.

    LOL oh please. Funniest thing Ive heard in a long time. If I were a parent at that school, Id challenge my child to a cartwheel race every day across the oval.

    And now the government want to weigh our kids to try and find out if and why our kids are getting bigger every year and whether or not the education system is working at it's best in educating people on how to be healthy.
