TKSS Sports Day

 Once again, we are celebrating TK Sports Day 2012!  It was held at Serangoon Stadium on Friday, 13 April 2012. We were blessed with fantastic sunny weather even though it was predicted that it would rain heavily in the afternoon.  Thank goodness, everything went smoothly just as planned. The event started at 2.30pm and ended at 5.30pm.

Excitement filled the air – students, teachers, participants and spectators were watching, supporting and cheering for the respective house.  Each house gave their best cheers throughout the afternoon – to encourage their mates on and in the hope of getting the best house cheer for the year! Indeed, it was heart warming to see the spirit of TK students.  As the afternoon went on, more excitement , suspense and anxiety filled the air. Who would get the best house? Who would get the best cheer?

The afternoon programme included the 100 meters race, the 400 meters race, the 800 meters race and relays.  As the gun fired to start the race, the cheers of the students raised the roof! They watched in anticipation to see who would be the first to cross the finishing line! We, the parents that were present, were caught in the excitement as well.
All the participants deserved a round of applause for the hard work and congratulations to all winners!

One of the po
One of the popular events was the race among the teachers, parent support group, non-teaching staff and the alumni.  I was busy going around encouraging the parents to take part in this fun and exciting race and finally managed to get 5 brave parents to participate. The parents that participated had a good time and would come back again next year! The parents proved their fitness by clinching silver and bronze medals!  Great job parents! PSG is proud to be part of this success. I am sure the children are proud of their parents too!

The final event was the Inter House Cheering Competition. The four houses, Rutherford, Einstein, Da Vinci and Tagore each had a turn in showing off their cheers. They gave all they got – I believed some went home with sore throats.  I was one of the judges and mind you it was not an easy task.  It was a neck-to-neck battle and eventually the award was given to DA VINCI! Congratulations DA VINCI for winning the best cheers! Congratulations to TAGORE for winning the best house!
The event ended with the Prize-giving ceremony. The guest of honour, our very own PSG member, Mr Cliff Hew gave away the prizes to all the winners. 

 It was a fun-filled joyous afternoon mingling with parents, cheering, laughing and snacking (yep, light refreshment was provided). It was a fruitful afternoon getting to know new parents and fostering new friendship.
I personally would like to thank all the parents for their precious time in coming down to support the event and to those brave parents for participating in the race. Well done!  PSG hopes to see more of you in the next TK Sports Day!
