Let the Games Begin! – Sports Day 2012

A couple of weeks ago, the kids had their annual Sports Day in school.  Both of them were equally excited about the event, as they had practised very hard for their events.  For Hannah, it was her first ever Sports Day and the first time she donned her yellow school t-shirt.  For Ethan, it was his last Sports Day in pre-school/kindergarten and he and his other K2 classmates were also involved in a fund-raising bake sale.

Each K2 child would be in charge of selling a single food item (30 packs each), and this was what I made for Ethan to sell:

Of course, a chunk of fun from this project came from the help the kids gave me in packing the cupcakes in their boxes, and errr….(not) threatening to eat them before the sale date.

The combo sign Ethan made for the Red Velvet Cupcakes.  They didn’t have space for one item per sign, so the kids had to share it.

…and here’s our first customer!  Such great support from you, Tess!  Thank you!

The event proper started off with the lighting of the torch a la Olympics style and then they had the march past of all the classes.

Say hi to my handsome boy here:

We had a pleasant surprise when it was Hannah’s class’s turn for the march past.  Our little girl was holding the class sign leading her class to the field!

She looked so determined and yet so cute at the same time!

The kids then went through a warm-up dance exercise… here’s Hannah doing her thang!

The opening ceremony ended with a Pom Pom Dance performed by the K2 afternoon session students.

The first event of Sports Day was from Ethan’s class.  In line with their Olympics theme this year, all the classes would emulate an Olympic event.  For Ethan’s class, they did the hurdles.  The kids had to jump over three hurdles in a row.

Getting all set…

Ethan in action…

…and from a different angle…


Ethan’s team well deserved the Gold medal, and he was ever so happy!  Great job, Ethan!

Hannah’s class’s event was up a few minutes later.  Her class did the “water balloon shot put”.


First, walk on the balance beam…

Then, hop 3 times in 3 hoops and run towards the water balloon bucket.

Quickly, grab hold of a water balloon (“shot put”):

Take a good aim…and launch the balloon!

It was very entertaining to see 2-3 year olds participate in their sports events because they looked so adorable!  Hannah tried her absolute best and that’s all that matters, although she did not get the Gold medal this time around, she still went home with the Silver 🙂

If you look at the following photo carefully, you can tell Hannah is gawking with excitement at her medal!

Of course, since Taiping Ah Ma happened to be in Penang that weekend, she managed to catch all the Sports Day action LIVE!

Meanwhile, Ethan was busy selling his cupcakes.  It was an eventful day indeed, and we managed to sell all the 30 boxes! Yay!

Thanks to all our friends, family and visitors who made the bake sale a success!  The funds raised would go to the K2 kids’ class fund and they would use it for charity and/or field trips at the end of the calendar year.

A big thank you to Pauline Kor Kor too, for some of the Sports Day photos.  Non-watermarked photos in this post were taken by her. 🙂
