It’s a Thursday evening and our class takes a brisk walk over the pedestrian crossing to the school gym.

 Our over-energetic head of sports’ teacher sits us down and rapidly runs through the instructions.

  After getting divided into two even teams and having all placed our jewellery on the sideline bench, we lay ourselves on the solid wooden floor… SLAM! Everywhere I look I see fluorescent red dodge balls flying around. The sound of clamouring voices fills my ears as the students cheer for their teams. The smell of sweat fills my nose as I search around for my belongings.
