Its another happy day for the children at School today because it is Sports Day! It’s the 3rd Sports day of FPS, to be exact. The weather is nice and the event went on smoothly.
Many parents volunteered to help out at the event. Some of them participated in the Parent and child competition making it extra special for their children.
Are you ready? Get set, ready, here we go!
The P3 children have grown to be more confident and could play more challening games. This year they played Captain Ball. They were taught techniques and the rules of the game. The children had learnt that friendship always comes first and competition comes second. This is what we called “Sportmanship”. P3 Confidence had done up a banner to support their class. They cheered “Confidence! Confidence!”. There were cheering everywhere… “Quick pass the ball!”, “Hurray! We won!”, “Throw higher!”, “Quick! Time is running out!”.
We could feel the excitement in every corner of the Indoor Sports Hall. After each game, the children were excited to know how many points their class had scored. They would gather around the scoring board to check out the points scored by their class.
After the inter-class competition, the parent and child competition began.There were indeed many sporty and supportive parents. Now it is time for the parent and child to play together as a team. Each team consist 2 parents and 2 children. We are sure that the parents will agree that it was fun and challenging for them too!
The P2s were led into the field with lots of colourful balls and bats. There were many big brothers and sisters in the field too. Oh.. the P2s are going learn the basic techniques of Tee ball… the fun way! After some warming up and stretching they are ready to start. Swing-it! Catch-it! RUN! Endless play with no pressure. The instructors were great and friendly. Thumbs up, guys!
When its time for the inter-class competition, things were a little bit different. The children were all set to win! They cheered and roared as their friends were racing down the Parade Square, jumping over hurdles and crawling over the mats.
The Parent and child competition were not for the faint-hearted. Just kidding! There were only three teams so everyone got a prize!
P1s started their Sport day with a relay competition in the Parade Square. They were so excited! Each class had their own support group whom cheered till their voice went hoarse. The Parent and child competition began right after. It was some simple hood-la-hood and ball activites but an excellent bonding time for the participants.
Next, the children tried out gymnastics. They had fun while mastering all their courage to try out some of the activites. Great job!
Everyone is a winner as long as they participated today. After the presentation of the trophies and medals by the Principle and Vice Principle, the school ended the Sports Day with three cheers of “HIP HIP HURRAY!”.
Now… let the School holiday begin!
