The loud honk if the air horn reverberated through the hall as Mrs Lee announced the start of Games Day 2018. Students’ cheers and their claps echoed as the teachers made their way out to the sports venues. Games Day had officially commenced!
Participants were led to their respective games’ venues to warm-up before the actual tournaments. Many students supported their houses and cheered their players on while others tried out their luck at the game booths to have fun and to earn house points as well. Two of the booths were manned by volunteers from the Parent Support Group (PSG). There were seven booths at the concourse, including hoop shooting, golf, speed stacking and agility stairs. Some of the staff members donned on their house t-shirts as well to show support for their respective houses. A Milo van was also parked at the canteen for any student who wanted a refreshing drink to cool them in the hot weather.
Here are some of the pictures we managed to get for the intense competitions.
