“Teacher, what is benefits of the trekking, sir?” young boy ‘Golf’ wants to know for this activity to do in this school break
“Trekking has many advantages. First of all, you will have good health because trekking is an exercise to walk on the mountain. Secondly, you will have a chance to play many different and fun games with your friends and to know new knowledge from the jungle. Thirdly, you will learn how to come across and conquer your fear because trekking is not only a fun activity but it also has some fears”
“Why it is a fear?” young boy ‘Golf’ asks with curious face.
“Emm .. will you go and do trekking alone at the mountain?” Teacher asks him.
Instead to answer, young ‘Golf’ shake his head… Teacher explained more details to him.
“At the same time, you will learn how to manage and solve immediate problems. Trekking is a fun activity but it needs a big and strong encouragement and patience. In the jungle, lots of flies, mosquitos, bug & bee. You and your friends need to cook for yourselves. It has many challenges. So, do you want to go trekking?
Young ‘Golf’ silent for a while and answer “Yes, I want to go”
