2016 Sports Day

By May 18, 2016 September 11th, 2019 No Comments

May is when we celebrate sports day as part of Education Week, and this year all the students and teachers had another fun day.  The school is split into four houses Рgreen, red, blue and purple Рwho work together to compete against the other houses. Each house is named after a person who has played an important role in the schools development.

First up is the banner and cheer leading competition:

Then came the events, and I apologize that there are only a few photos here, but at least they give a taste of the action and fun.

And finally, the tug of war, which actually took place a few days earlier as part of the lead up, along with other fun races including the slow bike race (how slow can you ride a bike… last person over the finish line wins!)

But who won? Green House took top honors for the third year running. Thank you to all who participated.
