The Primary Athletics team ended their productive season with a Head-2- Head match with Waseda International School. Only Track events took place due to the earlier downpour.
It was a cold and miserable day for BST and WIS to do athletics but Mr. Wild didn’t even think about cancelling the meet. Despite the bad weather, BST’s boys and girl’s kicked off with a good start by winning the first relay of the tournament. While the students were trying their hardest the parents were chatting away comfortably until at the start of the 200 meter race when Lewis Peedle accidentally tripped his fellow friend Matthew Viner over. Kindly, Lewis stopped and helped him up and said sorry and then zoomed of but still came 2nd last. In Matthew’s case blood was pouring down his leg and had to go to the nurse. Unfortunately that was the end of the day for Matthew. Even though Mr. Boyes and Mr. Wild put lots of pressure on some people, it didn’t affect them and they kept happily running.
It was great that BST children were cheering for everyone who was running and all of the people who participated tried their hardest all the way through even with the tough conditions. Without Mr. Boyes putting pressure on everyone and Mr. Wild organizing and fairly writing down the times BST would have crumbled into pieces like a cookie.
There were some great performances from all Year groups. At the end of the day it stopped raining all because of the amazing BST Athletics team.
