At the ring of the bell, we raced to the school football field to join our schoolmates and teachers for the start of Panyaden’s annual Sports Day. Kru Dokmai and Kru Michel welcomed everyone before Kru Ou led a fun aerobic warm-up for the sporting events ahead.
Divided into green and orange teams, we cheered, raced in sacks, ran, bowled and bounced on colourful giant balls towards the finishing lines. Sometimes we had to help our teammates up especially when they fell back during tug-of-war. It was an exhilarating (and happily exhausting!) day of sportsmanship, bonding, teamwork and fun with our schoolmates, teachers and parents ending with a crowd-pleasing song by Kru Neil dressed up as a cool rapper impressively accompanied by our schoolmate, MC Noah. They rapped about Panyaden’s wise habit, Caga, a fitting reminder on this day to be generous and gracious in winning.
