Welcome to the KGS Sports Day 2018. Sports Day is one of the most exciting school events of the year. House spirit and enthusiasm is high at this time. For the athletes it is their time to shine and show their skills. It is each House Captain’s dream to lift the trophy on Sports Day. Months of hard work, training and working out finally pays off on this day. As the day approaches emotions run high; the joy of winning medals, or the heart break of losing what you worked so hard for.
The new system of vertical integration into each house has inspired the students to work for their house. The day begins with the March Past led by the Head Boy and Head Girl followed by the houses in the respective order of their last year’s positions. This year there is a new introduction; a P.E. Display performed by each house. The students have been working hard to perfect their moves for this highly anticipated addition.
Then comes the races. A lot of events have already been decided before the final day, and some are still to be decided. Perhaps the most intense are the relays. Sports Day is a chance for all the students to actively take part in sport, and even if they do not reach the finals, there is a half point awarded to each student who passes a certain qualification in the heats. We are looking forward to the highly anticipated Sports Day and hope to see you there on the day.
Who do you think will take the trophy this year?
