2017-11-30

 [SCIE web news, Nov 30th, 2017] Nov 11 was the date of Sport Day, an annual event of SCIE, which everyone was looking forward to. In the early morning, at around 7 am, teachers were already busy preparing everything for the Sport day in the playground of the Green Oasis School. The flag-raising ceremony started at half past eight. With the beautiful poem wrote by Mr. Greenwood, the SCIE 2017 Sport Day begun.

 

 

The high jump was catching everyone’s attention as it always did. Zac, was the hot favorite of this activity, who broke the record in these two years. And with classmates’ and teachers’ cheers, he cleared 1.73 metres which also broke the A level record.

 

 

Eric and Antony, both from Metal house, also did a great job. Including Zac, three of them in Metal house made a clean sweep of the prizes in this event. And Grace also won the first place in A level girl high jump with a good result of 1.26 metres for Metal House.

  

The 100-meter race was also very breathtaking, the final game was more than a delight to watch. Charles, Barry and Nelson, all from Metal house got the chance to be in the final round, so did Micheal from Fire house. But it was pity that Charles had to quit due to something urgent.

 

bang!”, the race started. Three runners shot away from the starting line at the same time. At the beginning, Nelson took the lead, Barry followed very closely, while Michael was a little behind. They run so fast and it felt like they had wings, flying to the terminal point. At the end, Nelson continued his lead and won the race, only a body length ahead of the second-place winner, Barry. Congratulations to Nelson for winning champion of 100-metre race.

 

The fierce 200-metre finals of A level kicked off. The top three winners of the girl’s final were Sue, Phoebe and Albee, they all came from the first group, which meant the first group was very competitive. For the boy’s final, Ivan, from Fire house, in the first group, took the lead till the end. but Ricardo, from the second group, unexpectedly won the 200 metres final with absolute advantage.

 

Timothy, from Wood house won the gold medal in the A level 400-metre race, finishing in 1m04s, other winners of 2nd, 3rd and 4th place were: Fire Captain -  James (1m05s), Water – Henry (1m05s), Wood – David (1m09s). For the girl’s final in 400-metre race, Manny from Water house won gold with the result of 1m23s, while Jean Lavender from Fire house got the second place (1m26s), and Gloria from Metal house had the bronze medal (1m35s).


With the enthusiastic cheering from the audience, the 800-metre race begun. All athletes are intensely prepared and hoped to win for their houses. The first competition was girls 800 metres race. Arya(Wood house) ran so fast, leaving other candidates behind all the way through, and won the gold medal with the result of 2m45s. For the boys’ 800 metres race, there were 10 candidates, but only Richard (Water house) who took the lead and won the first place with the record of 2m31s.

  

In the G level shot put competition, Alan(Wood) was so proud to claim that he was the only champion here, and others just needed to go for the second place. And just like what he said, he won the first place easily with the record of 10.02m, while Bryant, the winner of silver medal, put the shot 9.6m away. For the girls shot put competition, Corrine(Metal) got the first place, put the shot 6.2m.

  

In A level competition, Kenneth(Fire) and Isabel(Metal) won the gold medals respectively for the boys and girls put shot. Congratulations to all the winners and candidates!

  

As time went on, the sun came slowly to the top of our heads. At the hottest moment of the day, the 1500-metre race started. The long-distance race, as a test of endurance perseverance, made it very hard for the candidates to remain their speed. However, Tiger and Owen, both from G level, were leading all the way, and it was very difficult to see who was faster. But in the end, Tiger beat Owen slightly by a few milliseconds, and won the 1500-metre G level boys’ race. And for the girls’ 1500-metre race. Maybe it’s too challenge and there were only 3 players. But they tried their best to finish the competition which everybody admired most, and Autumn won the gold medal of girls’ 1500-metre race.

  

For the relay events, Water house (Cassie, Vicky, Nancy and Eva) won the gold medal of G level girls’ relay race, while Metal house came the second place, Fire house got the third place.

  

As the last competition of the Sport Day, A level boys 4X200m relay race caught everyone’s eyes and especially when people saw Zac, one of school basketball leading players, was 192cm tall, and he ran the first leg of the relay for the Metal house. With the stable performance of the following runners, Danny, Jerry, and Andy, Metal house won the first place. Water house came to the second place, Fire house was the third place. For the girls relay race, Wood house got the gold medal, while Fire house and Water house won the second place and third place respectively.

         

In the end:  thanks for everyone who work so hard for preparing the Sport Day, and the excellent performances of the athletes. The House captains tried their best to find the candidates, and the cheer from the House lead was so excited. Although winning was very important, but the efforts which everyone made for their houses were much appreciated! Thanks again for everyone!!
