BRABAND, DENMARK (Eurovision/CBS) - There's at least one school where students never hear the ages-old warning: "No running in the hall!"

At the Tovshojskolen School in Denmark, running has been authorized in the hallways. After years of trying to prevent running, the school has divided the hallways in running and walking lanes.

This is supposed to make the pupils active and full of energy. But it's also a way of accepting that it is a natural behavior for a child to run in the hallways, and something you can't possibly prevent.

"It's great to run, but also great to walk," said 8-year-old Adam Shehabi. "Sometimes I walk, and sometimes I run. But most of the time I do run."
