On a bright and sunny Wednesday morning, all of Pre-Prep went outside onto the field to take part in a special Sports Day. To coincide with our School Theme week, ‘The Commonwealth’, each activity station represented a Commonwealth country. From Malaysia to India and Canada to New Zealand, twelve Commonwealth countries featured. The children came out of Pre-Prep with huge smiles waving their mini Commonwealth flags. Sports Day began with The Queen’s Baton Relay with a child from each class running to the next country all the way around the track.

The children then completed a carousel of activities including agility races, hockey dribbling, obstacle races, the traditional egg and spoon event plus a sprint. There were many stations, so the children (and teachers!) were grateful for one station to be a refreshment stall to get a well-deserved drink and biscuit! After the carousel of events, the Years 1 and 2 took part in their year group relay races which the younger children watched in awe as these children ran like lightning past them. Sports Day finished with a ‘Commonwealth Parade’ where each class paraded their Commonwealth country banner down the length of the track to cheers from parents and the Prep children.

What a fantastic morning. Well done everyone!
