Children of the project “live healthy in Rezekne District!”

The annual inspection data of the State Agency for Sport Medicines show that the number of pupils with functional disorders is increasing every year. The checks carried out several years ago revealed that more than half of children and adolescents were wrong. The situation is worsening every year and more and more children need to be adjusted. 

The study of the State Education Content Centre confirms that when the school is started, children only realize 50% of the volume of movements corresponding to their age. 

To be healthy does not mean the same thing. The child is healthy when he feels happy, satisfied, and wants to move. The more the child moves and develops his skills, the better the entire system of his body is developing, the physical development and health are improved. The child's story reflects the amplitude of his movements.
