KIS Field Day

I’m happy to report that the competition was fierce, school spirit high, students and staff worked together under the leadership and direction of Mr Sither, head of the PE department and the PE staff, to make Field Day 2009 a special event.

A bitter-sweet moment came right at the beginning of Field Day after the flag had been hoisted when Mr Antony Das from the PE department, one of the workers who has been at KIS for 48 years was recognized for his many years of service. He was wrapped in a shawl by the Principal, given a gift and a tribute of thanks was read by Mr Sither. Mr Das will retire from service at KIS at the age of 60 at the end of the month. His loyalty and dedication to KIS are greatly appreciated.

And I’m sure you want to know the final outcome. The final score (now tallied online, with certificates printed on the field, thanks to our amazing Information Systems Manager, Mr Rudy Wuthrich) was: 962 White, 1165 Blue and 1220 for Orange. It has been awhile since another team has won Field Day. I’ll have to do some research to see which teams won in previous years.
