Botswana Sector of Educators Trade Union (BOSETU) will hold a wellness and fitness day for its members in and around Francistown on Saturday (8 July).
The day’s activities begin at 06:30am and commence with a walk starting from Met Court car park – where BOSETU’s offices are located – and ending up at Sunshine Plaza.
The walk will be followed by one-to-two hours of aerobics, facilitated by City Active.
After this there will be a short talk from River Side Clinic health specialist, Faith Ketshogile.
Speaking to The Voice ahead of the fitness-centered event, BOSETU’s regional chairperson, Winston Radikolo, explained that the day was meant to sensitize members on the importance of health and fitness, both in and out of work.
“Because as a union we are concerned about the wellness and health of teachers, we want to increase productivity in schools by avoiding and minimising absenteeism, through engaging in healthy living,” stressed Radikolo.
