Springbank's Olympic Sports Day

We were lucky enough to dodge the recent awful weather and Sports Day took place as planned. It was a fantastic morning. 

This year Sports Day was done in an Olympic theme with the children representing 8 countries to compete in all the events. The countries represented were Brazil, Canada, China, Greece, Jamaica, Kenya, New Zealand and Spain.

Before Sports Day the children had spent a morning in their teams learning about the country they were representing and made flags and banners to support their team. They even had a go at learning the National Anthem for their country. 

On the day the children came dressed in their countries colours and looked super. We were really proud of all the children as they entered into Sports Day with the spirit of the Olympics- respect for all and supporting each other fully. Everybody gave it their all and some children showed real determination in finishing races despite others having finished before them. Congratulations to Spain and Canada who came joint first with 55 points.  

We must say a big thank you to Mr Chapman who spent a huge amount of time organising the whole event and thank you to those parents and other family members who came along to support us. A great morning!
