Sports Day 2012 on PhotoPeach
Thanks to your fantastic family turnout, we enjoyed a great time at Sports Day this year. A decision was taken by the staff and by the Parent Council that we would introduce more competition into the event. However, that has proved a bit controversial. A number of children found it very upsetting that they didn’t win a race and get a winnner’s sticker. However, many people feel this reflects our experiences in life where we don’t win everything and that this builds our resilience. What are your thoughts? Please comment. We will also be asking you this in the last newsletter of the year so you can have your say on a tear off slip there too.
It’s the first time we have tried sports this way and we will certainly learn from our mistakes. We’ve made a big list of those already eg £1.50 was really too dear for an ice cream, confusion amongst staff about when children could have an ice cream, can we get the grass marked out for races etc
However, our thanks go to the staff and Mrs Sellwood for running the events, to our P7 helpers for giving us much needed assistance and to you for all coming along and supporting us in what was a great afternoon of fun and competition in sport.
