A couple of days prior to the sports day, I was asked by the kindy administrator if I could assist to take photos at the event. That took me by surprise, as I’m not that great a photographer. I jumped at the opportunity, obviously, as that would allow me up, close and personal access to the happenings J
The event was held on the kindy ground, and started promptly at 8.30am with Teachers Evelyn and Esther as the emcee. They warmed up the crowd with some fun exercises and many parents participated sportingly.
This was followed by the children marching in, led by five boys – four flag bearers and another bearing a placard with this year’s theme, Noah’s Ark.

After singing the national anthem, Pastor Chris, Pastor Margaret and principal Teacher Ting Ai delivered their brief speeches, followed by an energetic dance by the 5-year old children.

This little cutie pie cried all through his routine :-)
A short intermission for parents’ game.

The event continued for the little one...
Race in the Ark
Rabbits hunt for food

Yan Yan participated in the last game, All aboard, and her team came in second.
Here's a video of her in action.
And one last game for the parents before the medal ceremony, which her papa sportingly participated (much to my surprise!)
And his team came out 1st
This was followed by the medal ceremony, and every child was given a medal.
