An amazing energy-packed Sports Day at Wingate School
Year 7 to 13 had an exciting day with a wide range of activities and races!
An action-filled atmos-phere mixed with fun and excitement filled the Sports Day at Wingate School on the 22nd of March!
More than 100 students from year 7 to 13 participated in the event which was reigned by enthusiasm and adrenaline.
A sunny and warm climate welcomed the students at the pitch early in the morning, fully prepared for the activities planned!
The students were divided into two teams, white and blue, and were separated by age groups – year 7 to 8, year 9 to 10 and year 11 to 13.
A few minutes were spent for warming up and the activities then began!
Exciting races took place the whole day from 11 AM to 3 PM, ranging from 100m to 1.5km runs. Teachers and the sports leaders arranged the pitch and recorded the standings.
The runners fiercely com-peted for the first place while the spectators enthusiastically cheered and animated the atmosphere.
At first, 100m, 200m, 400m heats took place, in which the runners competed to get into the finals for each age group. This was followed by 800m and 1500m races. The players were motivated to do well and this resulted in competitive races in which many times the winner was very hard to determine!
Energy-packed and en-thusiastic finals took place, and some results were fairly surprising! Excitement and acclaims filled the whole pitch when the winners of the races were announced!
After having a 40 minute lunch break the day proceeded with various fun activities which everyone enjoyed, such as an egg and spoon race, a three-legged race and a skipping race. It was great fun and new winners were announced!
With all that fun, time was running out but no one wanted to miss the game of Tug of War, in which everyone was involved and it was the most enjoyed activity by most people!
At the end, medals were awarded to the winners of each activity! Congratulations to the winners and to everyone who participated in the event and to whom organised it!
Finally, we must give a special thanks to Ms Morris and Ms Yates for their immense hard work in organizing the activities!
It has been an amazing day, filled with sportsmanship, enthusiasm and memories to cherish!
