When we first entered the Laborc School, we heard some words that shocked us and showed us the importance of the free play attitude. One of the teachers was leading a group of children to the playground, and while they were all setting to run and play, she just shouted and said to them. Our jaw just dropped, and we understood why the training that we were about to do was relevant; we had planned to talk about how kids can get dirty and how it was a good sign. It also made us thing of the field study visit that we made in England, because there it is always rainy, and kids are supposed to get dirty. It made us realize that actually CAPS projects comes from there, and that this physical aspect is a symptom of many other deeper attitudes towards play and freedom.
