Finally, Sport’s Day has arrived! (Well, at two of my schools, in any case.) I dragged my ass out of bed and got to school around nine am, just in time to listen to the opening ceremonies. I read BBC news. (It’s a more productive use of time since I don’t understand the speeches anyway.) The school this was taken at is my smallest school with a total of 30 students. So for their sport’s day, they combined it with the nearby elementary school and kindergarten, and people who live in the area were also invited to join in. This meant people from the age of three all the way up to sixty were involved, and it was much funnier because of that!
Here we have an example of the several relay races that are run. (They do regular relays, too.) Students must run along with a ginormous ball, and then pass it off to the next group. Other relays included crawling under netting, doing somersaults, stuffing one’s face in flour to search for marshmallows, and the “mukade,” which is one of my favorites becuase the students fall down all the time.
A good day, though it was suuuuuper hot. Makes me wanna go to the beach!
