On the 10th of July, our school, along with many other schools in the nation took part in this simultaneous "senamrobik event". This activity was a fun one for everybody and the majority of students enjoyed it. Here's from my point of view how this event was conducted at my school.
On that day, everyone was wearing their respective sport house shirts. This was to simplify marking attendance later on. Everybody was gathered at the school assembly point around 7.40 a.m. First of all, some teachers and our headmistress gave speeches. Then, our headmistress asked all the teachers (except the pregnant ones) to take part. After this, representatives from each house stood in front and told us to follow their movements.
Around 8 a.m., the music started playing. The people in front broke into synchronized moves. At first everyone was hesitant and shy to follow but then afterwards with some encouraging words from the house representatives, gradually more and more students got into the beat.
After playing a couple of songs, one of our teachers went in front and persuaded everyone to follow him. He then started to do some "tai chi" moves. Everybody was interested and soon everyone joined in. However, like they say: time flies by when you're having fun. Before you know it everything was over. Most students thought that this was a fun experience, though they said that it might have even been better if the songs were selected according to their tastes.
