This week we celebrated running, jumping, throwing, and healthy competition. Track and field day is always a highlight of the year for many.
Our students were divided into multigrade teams and were led by Grade 8 students. Each team had a name and a colour. Points were earned at each event and every centimetre or second mattered! The competition for trophy was fierce! There were even points for the loudest cheer (measured by a decibel metre) and a human curling competition, which happened a few days before.
There were many smiling faces, cheers and quiet encouragement for those that were feeling down.
There are always many parents and grandparents cheering everyone on.
Many moms provided yummy lunch and snacks.
On Wednesday, our grade 8 students participated in their own field day and competed for the highly sought after Beacon Cup.
We were blessed with amazing weather, no injuries, many smiles and lots of encouragement between students!
