Sports Day 2014

This year’s sports day took shape in a different set up than students at BISS have been used to. The event was hosted a local school Shangde, who provided access to their running track and sports field.

By Wayne Grant, Head of Sport

The day followed a traditional Athletics meet program, with all students from Middle School, Years 9 and 10 from Upper School, and Year 12. This was a house event and the stands were awash red, blue, green and yellow, adding more to the competitive nature of the event.  

Form 9.30 until 14.30 students from across the school competed in events ranging form the grueling 1500m, the short and sharp 100m, the tactical medley relay, high jump, long jump, javelin and shot putt.

For Year 6s and 12s it was an opportunity to engrave their name in history, as there was a clean record table to be filled, so any winner would be a record holder. For Year 7 and above, it was the opportunity to break records that may have stood for some years. On the day over 50 records were set or broken.

Whilst winners were celebrated, student still understood that it was not all about the winning. Races had great competition for 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th, even 7th and 8th. There was great display of community spirit with students stopping and helping other across the line in a show of solidarity. A key moment for all was watching Khalid AlHelal, recovering from corrective surgery, coming down the home straight of the 800m, and being greeted by a standing ovation from all houses. The day finished with a teachers mixed relay and the tug of war.
