On the 28th of June 2019, our school SMK St Teresa held its annual Sports Day at Padang Jubilee. The students and teachers arrived as early as 6.30a.m. Some supportive parents were also present. The event started off with a 1500m open race followed by the outstanding and dedicated marchers. A fitness dance by the Fitness Club of SMK St Teresa followed. The next agenda was a speech from our beloved principal Madam Mary John followed by a speech from Mister Thomas.
Our Sports Day was declared open by Mister Thomas and Madam Mary John. For the upcoming races, the athletes were divided into 3 groups. The groups were Girl A which was the category for the Form 5 and Form 4 students, Girl B for the Form 3 students and Girl C for Form 1 and Form 2 students.
The race was divided into a few categories which were the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and, 4x 100m relay. The whole stadium was filled with the cheers of parents and students. The event ended at 5 o’clock in the afternoon with the announcing of results. The winner of the overall competition goes to sports house O’Driscoll followed by Connaughton, Cheetham, Egan, Sylvia and finally, Leitner.
The winners were happy and the losers were disappointed. However, this made all of them more determined to train harder for the next year’s Sports Day. All in all, this event managed to create an opportunity for Teresians to show their athletic abilities and at the same time, strengthen the bonds between friends while exhibiting healthy competition among themselves.
Love and serve,
