Yesterday we enjoyed our first ever Virtual Sports Day. Emilia, MIV, gives us her highlights of the day:
A variety of challenges were open throughout the day, ranging from solving Rubik’s cubes to holding a plank position. There were lots of fun activities arranged, for example a whole school dance party, a sports quiz and a grand finale consisting of seven options from ceilidh dancing to 80s aerobics. Participation points for attending these events were given to the five dinosaur teams (Velociraptor, Pterodactyl, Stegosaurus, T-Rex, and Diplodocus). At the end of the day these were added to the points accumulated by the teams this year, establishing a winner: Diplodocus. We also heard from guest speakers Elena Bowman, Head of Fastpitch at HitTrax, and Sara Binkhorst, Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Wheaton College, Massachusetts, who discussed their careers in sport and gave some inspirational advice for students hoping to work in the field. Thank you to the PE department for planning such a fun day to mark the end of the year.
