It was the age old question we address almost every year on Sports Day…will we have to hold Sports Day indoors because of the weather?
Thankfully, the sun smiled upon us and we were able to enjoy a very fun and pleasant day outside for Sports Day 2019. And our Kindergarten had a marvelous time!
Our Grade 6 Leaders did a fantastic job looking after our children, ensuring they stayed with the group, helping them where needed for the relays and making sure everybody had fun.
The children participated in a myriad of relays, from dressing up to filling up buckets with water, the “over under” ball game and the perennial crowd favourite, the Tug of War. We know that because we had a shortened Sports Day not all of the Kindergarten were able to participate in the Tug of War, but we have it on good authority that our Grade 7 Buddies are going to set-up that activity again for us so everyone will get a chance to pull the rope.
After a delicious snack of donuts and watermelon, the Kindergarten returned to their classrooms to eat again, followed by Centres and face painting. It was very satisfying day.
It was a big week at school because not only was it Sports Day, but it was the last day for our UBC Teacher Candidates.
We would like to say Congratulations to Miss Ellis and Mr. Pang as they have now finished their extended school practicums. We wish them the very best in all their future endeavours!
