ES Fun Day

The Elementary School Fun/ Field Day was on 20 February 2010. The day started off at 8am with all the students from K through 5 dressed in their team colorso - orange, blue and white marching down the hill from the ES quad, screaming their cheers accompanied by our intermediate band led by Paul Jaikumar. Brian Nelsen blessed the event with a prayer. Principal Geoff Fisher, our chief guest, opened the event by raising our school flag. The team captains took their oath and did their laps with the torch. As the orange team was last year’s winner, the captain Aadit Sen (grade 5) completed the final lap by lighting the torch. ES Fun/Fun Field day had officially begun.

With the sun shining gloriously, all the students participated in the track and field events. It was a great sight to see, loud cheers of encouragement, refreshments being served, the KAC members in their yellow tshirts assisting in different areas, overall all the teams did their best. To give our grade 5 students a breather as they were constantly participating in all the events, we had the staff, alumni and parents shuttle relay. The track events were completed with the 4x100 grade 5 relay leaving a final score of 68 points for white followed by 120 points for blue and the leading team orange, with 160 points.

The day ended with some fun games followed by the price distribution ceremony. All the students received medals; white bronze, blue silver and orange gold. Students from grade 3 to 5 received individual certificates for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in all the events. There was a delicious lunch served with hot dogs, french fries, ice cream and water melon. A perfect ending for this memorable day!
