Behind the Scenes: Track and Field 2017
“It doesn’t matter if you win or lose - the important thing is that you participate and have fun,”- Mr. Jashan (Physical Education, English, certified football coach)
On the 10th of October 2017, Pelita International School held a meeting for the colour houses. This was to prepare for the upcoming track-and-field event. The logistical details were discussed and the slots for races and field events were filled in. House colour captains and vice-captains were announced, too.
Shot put qualifiers were held on 24th October, and the tug of war and 200m (boys' and girls') qualifiers were held on the 26th of October, two days before the actual event. This was due to a space restriction at the actual venue, plus a time limit.
Even though one may not be the best runner, participation is what counts. Hopefully it will be a great track-and-field with minimal injuries, and everyone will have fun and enjoy themselves!
