Wales Japanese school sports day 2018
The Sports day in Wales Japanese Saturday School took place on Sat, 17th June, 2018. It had been unusually good weather in Cardiff, but unfortunately, it was NOT on that day and we decided to play in the sports hall. It’s a big shame that we couldn’t play on the big outside ground under the cosy sunshine…
However, regardless of the weather and the place, all children really enjoyed all of the events, e.g. Three Legged Relay Race, Tug-of-War, Ball in the Basket, Relay Race, etc., which were really exciting and heated. All spectators were also caught up into the event.
Team ‘White’ finally came from behind and won this year. Some younger kids jumped for joy, some were crying after losing. Some elder kids comforted crying ones, some gave respect to each other…, this kind of scene is also one of the best parts of the sports day. All events finished around 3pm followed by the Japanese typical radio gymnastic exercise for cooling down purpose. Thank you to all of the supporters, e.g. teachers, parents, guardians, Wales japan club people, etc., who prepared this event from early in the morning.
We are looking forward to seeing the sports day again next year, hopefully on the ground under the great sunshine 😊
