PLAYING FOOTBALL AS A GIRL Football has been my favourite sport since I started playing it. I still can’t forget the moment my father got me my first football. Football like any sport has enormous benefits ranging from high metabolism, high stamina and speed and also improving your concentration. The feel of your foot touching the grass, or the plain happiness of having scored a goal is just overwhelming. Running around the field, feeling the wind gush across your face and also the sweat that trickles down your skin are the things I truly relish while playing football. Football has taught me many things in life and has made me physically and mentally stronger; I just simply don’t understand why people think that girls can’t play football or girls are weak. I have seen boys teasing each other saying “Shame on you, you got tackled by a girl.” I really think that boys should stop thinking themselves superior to everyone. I play football for the love of the game and not to prove anything to anyone. EuroSchool has always been supportive of girl’s football and I am so proud to be part of this school. There’s not an instant I have ever felt sad playing football as a girl. There’s no better feeling than stepping out on the field and stunning them all by doing what none of them thought you could. -Lavanya Panwar, Grade 10 A Student Editorial Team

When autumn came in MID SUMMER When the wind whistled When the cherry blossoms fell When everything settled down When all was at peace When I wasn't running away from my life That was when I felt secure That was when I could breathe When the world didn't seem scary That was when each breath I took didn't seem tough That was when each step I took didn't seem hard That was when each feeling I felt was soft When I wasn't hiding myself in a corner Was when I felt love Was when I felt peace Was when I felt safe That was when my heart truly felt at ease -Abigail Anthony, Grade 9D Student Editorial Team
