Last Wednesday we held our annual track and field day at school. Field Day consist of several different activities and competitions in which students compete against fellow classmates. Activities for this event consist of the following:
  • 50-Yard Dash
  • Sack Race
  • Three-legged Race

  • Tug-of-war
  • Team Relay Race
Below are some of the highlights from last week's events.

Wow! What a fantastic event! When I was young,I was really good at sprintng and I used to come first in 100yards. Do you believe that ? Well that's true but that happened long long time ago.

Hi Mr McClung,

We have a field day but we call it Sports Day. We have running race, relays, high jump, long jump and heaps more. I am not very good at running but I can do high jump. They say high jumpers have long legs. Come and visit my blog at I can't wait to read more posts.
