Sports’ Day 2017
The weather smiled upon us at our Sports’ Day in July. Under the heat of the sun, children raced one another as parents and staff rightly cheered them on. From sprints to sacks, pupils gave of their best in a variety of races demanding different techniques and skills.
Friendly competition witnessed cheers for effort and achievement. The ‘Big Potato and Spoon’ race enabled our youngest to show their steady hand, balance and perseverance. Gliding over hurdles, older competitors demonstrated their judgment, timing and speed, whilst the relay race demanded important communication between team members as well as accuracy and determination.
A final contribution from our parents in what seemed a 200m dash for glory, wrapped up a delightful afternoon. A few stumbles here and there were quickly forgotten as the community spirit in evidence encouraged admiration for those who pursued their objective regardless of the outcome and in spite of any obstacles presented.
A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of athletics was followed by tasty sandwiches, drinks and ‘post-track’ analysis!
“Children develop resilience, self-esteem, and the self-confidence that prepares them very well for the next stage of their education.”
