Global School Play Day

Why is free, unstructured play important?

Wednesday February 6th , the H.I.S. PYP students will be participating in Global School Play Day to help raise awareness of the importance of play. There are countless benefits that help children develop physically, emotionally and socially.

On Wednesday this week,  students are encouraged to bring their toys from home. Once they get to school the rules are: no screens or devices, no structure, just play all day long!

Please visit www.globalplayday.com for more information and to watch Peter Gray’s TedX lecture, The Decline of Play to increase your knowledge on the importance of play.
