Battle of the belts in physical education classesStudents at the high school this week have been involved in a battle – of the belts.

The program, conducted during physical education classes, is to a sort of relay race between students with the goal of finding out how fast they can get into a car and buckle their seat belts.

The lesson is designed to encourage safety belt use.
