Every Sports Day starts with the whole school helping to carry our tug-o'-war rope, "Big Bertha" up to the sports field.
Each of our four house teams, Poole, Hoyte, Moleneaux, and Fisher had a tent to be in while they were not competing in a track or field event. I'm on Fisher, which meant that this is the one day a year when I will wear a yellow shirt.
I had a good view of the javelin and ball throw from where I sat distributing ribbons and entering in race scores,
I also had a good seat to cheer for the different races. Here’s what my view of Sports Day looked like:
We had some very tired kids and staff members by the end of the day, but we had no major injuries, and I was really encouraged to see some great displays of sportsmanship by kids of all ages. Also, the staff won the tug-o’-war against not only all our junior students, but against the seniors as well. Totally worth the sore muscles today!
