Field Day 2010

The 2010 Field Day began bright and early on Friday, 12 March with students from all three houses marching down to Bendy Field, led by Miss Kessler and our high school band. Once we arrived on the field, the captains from orange house—last year’s Field Day winners—Nadisha Sagar and Han Sol Kim ran their victory lap with the torch. Next, the grade 9 MYP students performed their respective house cheers. Finally......

The Orange house got off to an early lead, but the white house overtook them by mid-day and never looked back. The Field Day ended per tradition with all student athletes, staff and alumni eating lunch on a banana leaf around Bendy Field, with the KAC members serving them.

There were two records broken this year — both in javelin throw. Neema Tsering broke the record in the A Division and Zenden Dorji in the B Division. Divisional winners include Nadisha Sagar and Varun Vadara, Kunsang Wangmo and Han Sol Kim. Students awarded the letter “K” for achieving greater than 35 points were: Nadisha Sagar, Neema Tsering, Kunsang Wangmo, Reva Mahapatra, Han Sol Kim and Asef Ahmed.

The PE department also wrapped up fitness testing with the following High School students earning the Presidential Fitness Award: Kundan Sharma, Julian Manning, Varun Garg, Han Sol Kim, Jacob Stevens-Lubin, Rhys Dev, Siddharth Singhi and Joel Navam.
