From Sept. 24-28, many schools across Canada participated in Sports Day in Canada; an exciting week full of physical activity. This year, Kent Elementary School was one of them.

On Monday, the Grade 6 students went to Camp Squeah for team building events, and a hike to enjoy the scenery. The rest of the school did 15 minutes of physical activity to start the day.

The second day, the students ran three laps around the school as music played and teachers cheered them on.

On Wednesday, the Grade 6 students organized games for “Try it Day.” Primary Games included rat-tail tag, scavenger hunt, three legged race, and parachute, while Intermediate students participated in Frisbee golf, flag football, blob tag, and an obstacle course.

On Thursday, the students ran The Terry Fox Run to support Terry’s efforts and continue to raise money for cancer research. The run started with an awesome warm-up to get the excitement flowing.

On the final day, the school divided into four teams and partook in an Olympic style relay afternoon. The teams marched out with banners displaying their team province to the song; Believe.

After the singing of the National Anthem, the games were underway. Relays included wheelbarrow races, tire races, wagon races and ended with a three-legged teacher race. Each grade participated in their own relay.
