Athletics Sports Day

Today the Grade 3 – 6 students participated in the annual House Athletic Sports.

P1080497

The cool day provided perfect conditions for all events. It was wonderful to see many parents and other family members cheering on the students as they rotated through each activity.

The students participated in a variety of athletic track and field events, including:

  • 100 metre run
  • 200 metre run
  • Hurdles
  • High jump
  • Long jump
  • Triple jump
  • Discus
  • Shot put
  • 800 metre run (optional)

Every student is in a particular house (which are identified by different names and colours), and the points they score in each event goes towards their overall house total. We will know the overall house winner soon.

Miss Jordan was on the 200m event all day, and she enjoyed seeing the students trying their very best. Miss Curtain was at the finish line for the 100m and 200m, and she had some close calls with our talented sprinters! The slideshow below features some of the 4A and 4B students enjoying their day.
