Did you enjoy the school sports day? What are your favourite memories? Did you take part in any events?

I did take part in the 3K race. I planned to take it easy as I have just recovered from a calf injury, but that didn’t work out–I injured the muscle again after a couple of laps. In Canada, my secondary school did have a sports day, but it was a very informal affair. It was just held on the track behind the school. Also, we didn’t have houses (this is a British tradition), so we just had interclass competitions. I sometimes wonder what the purpose of the house system is. Is it to foster a sense of competition among students? Is it to give students a sense of belonging?

  3. I enjoyed the sports day very much.I had took part in 400M and 800M race.Although I had tried hard to win the competition ,but I can’t win it.I thing that it is not important that I can’t win the race.My friends also say that I had run very fast,so I felt happy in the sports day.

  4. @Emily. Oh, I was very worried about the blue house girl (I taught her last year). Luckily she was feeling much better about an hour later. When I was running the 3K race with the students and other teachers, I got injured after 5 laps and wanted to stop, but then I though that if that F3 girl could still try so hard to finish, I better try, too. However, I’m not sure that was the right decision; of course, the injury became worse and worse. Maybe sometimes it is better just to stop and try again the next time.

  5. This was the unforgettable Sport Day! Although I did not take part in 400m race because of sickness, I enjoyed the whole day. Everyone gave their effort to try their best. Even though they did not win any prizes, I can see a big smile on their face.
    I remember that, a blue house’s girl don’t have energy to run and she fell down. All of the students on the auditorium cheered her up( including other houses!) . Unfortunately, she couldn’t finish the race. That time, I really felt that what is Friendship comes first while competition comes second.

  6. @ Luk Kwok Shing: Congratulations! That’s a great performance.
    @ Cheung Ka Lee: I thought Green house did very well in the sports day events. I noticed a lot of their winners were in B and especially C grades, so it looks like Green House will be difficult to beat in the coming years.

  7. I didn’t take part in any events on the sports days, but I was not bored. On the two days, I worked as a cheering team member. We even got the award of v”House spirit”! I was so glad. Well, green house only got the second position in the sports days but we are not going to lose in inter-house competition!

  8. Sports day is a happy day for me.I got three medals at sports day.I got a gold medal and two silver medals.I and my friends are the champion of 4 times 400 metres race. We are very happy about it.But the most important thing is I can make a lot of new friends.
