My school sports experience..

Post by Lost_Jueun Jeong » Sun Apr 08, 2012 8:11 am

When I was in girl’s high school, we got a girl’s field hockey team which was quite famous in Korea. Because we don’t have many field hockey teams in high school league, students who played field hockey was considered as very special students among other students. They usually absent classes and most of school activities for training, so it was very hard to hang out with them at that time. Also, they usually chose to be a sports player instead of entering university. And the other students like me, we normally did study more than playing sports. Sports player students is regarded as like special students for me.
But after I went to abroad and saw that there are many students who are playing sports even in their high school or middle school, I came to realized that there are not so many school sport players in Korea. Also they normally get a scholarship if they are in school sports team or something. So it is thought as a quite normal thing for student to play one of the sports in their schools in foreign country. And I heard even Japanese school has some kind of after school activities that students have to join one of spots club.
Whenever I meet my foreign friends and talk about a sports that we were playing during the school time, I always hesitate to say because I didn’t play sports that much in my school.

Have you ever felt cultural difference when you talk about school sports with your foreign friends? And what do you think about our school sports in Korea?

yeah i felt really sad when a foreigner talk about the sports experience.
as you know, the high school of korea is not an institution that encouraging sports.
instead. they forced us to cram into study for the entrance of college.
When i was a senior in high school, the school changed the physcical education class into self-studying class.
this was a nonsense and unable to understand. ã… ã… ã… ã… ã… ã… ã… ã… ã… ã… ã…  since i love to enjoying sports.
sometimes i think that the education of ours is now going far from the genuine-learning for human.
anyway it is a shame that we hardly got anything to talk about the school-sports experience. :oops:

First Year School Sports Day

Post by kadeaxton » Fri Sep 14, 2012 9:12 am

My first sports day at high school saw me in a very embarrased position on the sports field, it was a very hot day and i decided to put my school running wear on which consisted of navy blue vest with matching shorts ,out on the field my mother along with a auntie uncle and two of mothers friends were waiting .
Once changed I ran out on to the field and went to my mother she had brought some water and sun cream, I started to have a drink and she said lets get some suncream on you , I stood still while she started to rub the cream on my arms and it felt good like a massage she told me to remove my vest which i did , the cream felt good on my warm body i was totally relaxed and never noticed as mother slipped my shorts down showing my bare bottom, I was talking to my auntie and having a laugh about my running ability ,I was so relaxed I failed to notice my shorts were round my ankles and mother was giving me head to toe covering in suncream , a couple of mates come over and one said have you seen the prefects checking you out,about eight prefects at different positions were all looking at me a mixture of boys and girls I then knew they all wanted me ,how many brownie points for catching a boy naked and more to the point how many strokes of the cane for the boy/
At this point all pupils were now on the field and about five hundred spectators, I noticed as i tried to stand against mother that girls from all ages were looking at me , at this point my form teacher appeared from nowhere and said would the master like to dress and continued to say I was in the first race ,once dressed she escorted me to my house point with all prefects looking on ,with the teacher unmoved by my naked appearance the prefects could do nothing, when i got home we all laughed about my naked sports day.

That's quite the story. I can't imagine an American parent pulling down their high school student's pants. A Korean parent would never do it either. Where are you from?
