CHARIS SPORTS DAY 2019/2020
Our annual athletics sports carnival was held on Tuesday, 10th December 2019. It was exciting to see lots of smiling faces and students trying to do their best and encouraging each other.
Our secondary sports are always a highlight and our students loved the sprint races. The encouragement from the crowd was amazing. The events ran smoothly and we had many parents and family members supporting our students at each event. We would like to thank all of the staff who assisted during the day to make our sports day so successful.
The Primary students began with an amazing 100m event. Congratulations to all of the children who participated in this. Competitors for the sprints and field events had been pre-selected during trials at their weekly sports lessons, and our students achieved many amazing results. Students who had not been selected to represent their house teams in the field events were able to participate in a variety of relay and team events on the day.
It was wonderful to see the manner in which all of our students competed in all events. They all tried exceptionally hard and participated in a friendly and inclusive manner.
A huge thank you to the parents who volunteered their time to witness our sports day.
I would also like to acknowledge our wonderful teachers, support staff and Rev. Teh who have worked so hard to ensure that the day was successful and enjoyable for all.
