Should kids be banned from doing cartwheels?
The Principal at a school near North Bay wants them banned because “The activity can cause concussions, and neck and wrist injuries.”
Todd Gribbon at M.T. Davidson public school in Callander, Ontario has reportedly issued a draft of new “playground rules” for the 2017-18 school year and “cartwheels” are on the list of prohibited activities.
No injuries have been reported, but parents and students are required to sign a code of conduct and return it to the school, which now would include a promise to never do a cartwheel!
A safe school advisory committee will meet Oct. 2. to review it.
Remember when a Toronto school banned BALLS because a parent got hurt? Is nothing sacred??
Principal Gribbon hasn’t replied to our request for an interview so we tried out some cartwheels of our own
