And the Classes
And the Classes
The classes offering at the moment are all on the notice board but here (hey ore again. Recreational:—Indoor basketball, volley ball, pad-derminton, badminton, deck tennis, piteka, handball, cornerball, "keep fit" exercises, folk dancing, square dancing, eurhythmics, and gymnastics. There are also classes for posture and corrective work, health and hyoiene, sports training, films and discussions.
A full-sized indoor basketball court is being laid out on the present courts. Lighting for night play is held up in the meantime but when it la available will be valuable for night training; it will have too the welcome effect of freeing the Gym. for other activities. Inter-class and inter-departmental competitions have been played and this idea might well grow—previous "experience is not necessary.
A dance group baa also been formed and will start classes when the piano is restored to the gym. A woman will direct this class; more members are required, this la a cheap, convenient and painless way of learning to dance—lots of students (Like Salient's reporter) have been too busy to cultivate this most social of the arts, but now that we have a tutor on our very doorstep there Is no reason why this class should not be well attended. It is realised that some students find their free time limited: then-tore opportunity for Incidental recreative activities in the morning hours will be made in the gymnasim.
There you have it, the complete scheme. In case some of you are a bit shy come along with your friends—you are all welcome. There is no obligation on you to attend every week 'if you don't like to and any one is free to turn up as he or she wishes and join in without any preamble, but once you have joined a class it's almost certain that you will want to continue in it. Watch Salient for further information on Phys. Ed. activities—we hope to run a series of articles on the different activities in order to clear up a few of your misapprchensions and doubts.
