Healthy Lifestyle Day
It was ‘Keep Fit Day at school. There were special programmes for all the students. When Michael arrived at school, he ran to the school field to join the rest of his classmates.
Michael and his classmates jogged two rounds around the field. The sun was blazing but the students did not notice because they were having so much fun. Michael was dripping with sweat by the time the school bell rang. Their teacher was waiting for them in the classroom. Instead of their usual lesson, she told them about the importance of eating fruit and vegetables and exercising regularly.
Time flew past. Before long, it was recess. When Michael and his classmates reached the canteen, they saw a row of makeshift stalls selling salad, sandwiches, and fruit juice. Michael stopped at the fruit juice stall and ordered a refreshing cup of orange and papaya juice. He drank every drop of it and was about to order another cup when he noticed the colourful bowl of salad from another stall. He decided to try that instead. The salad was cold and the vegetables were slightly sweet.
Michael was disappointed when the bell rang as he could not try any more food from the stalls. Back in class, he begged his teacher to organize a ‘Healthy Lifestyle’ Day just for his class.
