Palestine Trains Athletic Teachers

Download PDF for this date

About twenty Jewish men and women teachers from all parts of Palestine are attending a rally here at which courses are offered in physical training and instruction. Organized by the education department of the Vaad Leumi, the rally is being held in one of the big Levant Fair buildings.

Mr. Aloof, athlete and physical training inspector for the education department, is conducting the courses. The training goes on practically all day. The extensive curriculum which has been provided includes instruction in most of the commonly-used athletic apparatus.

These courses are expected to give impetus to physical training in Jewish schools throughout the country.
