Character Pillar 9: Perseverance

“Have a Ball with Perseverance”

It is not enough to have the courage in doing things; one must have perseverance as well. Perseverance is defined as a steady persistence in a course of action in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. In life, there will always be hindrances in most of the things that we do. Perseverance helps us overcome those obstacles and also helps us to continue what we start until we reach the finish line.  Anyone who plays sports must develop perseverance and a stick-to-it-ness attitude.  During this lesson, we will have a ball with perseverance.

How to Play Hot Potato Game?

Players arrange themselves in a circle and toss a small, round object (a tennis ball, an orange, or even a real potato will suffice) to each other while music plays. The player who is holding the “hot potato” when the music stops is out. The game continues until one player is left — that player is the winner
