Spring has sprung, not as much in the environment around us as it has in our hearts. With Covid putting a damper on most fun activities in the past year and a half, it was definitely time for the learners of King Edward to flourish on a day where the goal was to forget about formal school work and just focus on enjoying life.
We were able to host our own 'Mini-olympics', where sack-racing, sand-castle-building, human foosball and balloon relays were a few of the fun activities the various countries could participate in. Our opening ceremony mimicked reality, with each class representing a country and marching in as ‘their’ country’s National Anthem played. The Grade 7s also treated us to a Git Up team dance.
China (Grade 4) won the spirit cup and France (Grade 7) achieved first place overall with the most gold medals.
It was a sweet day, almost as sweet as the condensed milk treats and ice-cream cones that were sold. The kids had a spring in their step, the teachers realised that we were no longer spring chickens and hope will surely spring eternal that this will not be our last Spring Day at King Edward.
