We held our third, and final, Atheletics event on Friday October 11th for our children in Years 5-8. The children in Years 1 and 2 competed last Thursday 3rd and the children in Years 3 and 4 on Friday 4th OCtober. All three events were very well supported by parents - thank you all for coming!
Mr Masafu and Mr Franco group the children for the events so that races are as evenly matched as possible. The Years 1 and 2 event included some of the traditional favourites - sack race and racket and ball race - as well as standard running and hurdles races. Every event included a relay, a tug of war and a parents race. The parents event was popular as usual and was the most fiercely fought race of all!Children competed with determination against each other but showed great sporting spirit when congratulating those who ran faster than them! For the Years 3 - 8 events, children compete in their houses, accumulating points to find the to be awarded to their house total so far this year.
It is a pleasure to watch how the children develop year-on-year and to see how they hone their skills to become more and more successsful. We are very proud of all our children and the efforts they put into sporting actvities and training. We are now very much looking forward to our annual visit to Kasarani next month.
