It was a Sunday but we got to wake up exceptionally early to attend Darian’s school sports carnival at the Pasir Ris Recreation Hall. We reached there before 8.30am and waited for the carnival to commence at 9ish.
The school colour theme was blue and being the sporting us, we wore blue clothings to show our support.
The sports carnival was held indoor instead of a typical outdoor event. Although it seemed rather weird to have it done indoor, I really wouldn’t complain about staying in an air conditioned place as the weather has been crazily hot.
As usual, the event began with the arrival of the guest of honors, opening speech and a mass exercise to liven up the atmosphere. This followed by two ‘parents and children’ relay games to officially kick off the carnival.
The carnival consists of various game stations for the parent and child to complete instead of the usual competitive relay games. I supposed the purpose was not to stress the kids to compete but rather to promote parent-child participation. At the end, children would be able to receive a medal each upon the completion of all the game stations.
Here’s a picture of us with the guest of honor, Mr Teo Chee Hean! Either that he is very tall or I’m really short! Haha 🙂
To sum up, we did have a fun family time at the carnival and the boy was totally happy to bring home his medal! 🙂
