Education Minister Bertel Haarder gave a speech at today's launch. And he had an addition to the exercises in the exercise book: "It is some good exercises with the exercise book, but there is one I forgot," said Bertel Haarder, after which he for meeting surprise demonstrated that he can go on hands. "Exercise book is a great initiative that will help to change the perception of exercise and health in vocational schools. For as we have seen today, you certainly do not have to be boring exercise.
