Jayne had her first Sport’s Day and we were invited to join her and her class. It was scheduled on a Friday 530pm, so we were quite sure no other parents would be free to attend. But we were so wrong. Almost every kids’ parents took time off to attend the event.
Ms Barbara, the principal of the CDC started the presentation with a few slides showing us the activities of the centre. She is a very nice person and we were so happy to leave Jayne in her care.
Can you spot Jayne?
It’s time for sports, the kids were already out on the basketball court waiting for their parents. The older kids formed a cheering team to welcome us too. Cute!
Jayne and her classmates were seated quietly waiting for us. She looked so happy just to see us. This made all the effort worth it!
The sports event will start from the youngest to the oldest, so Jayne’s class will be second to play. Here she is getting ready with her teacher-in-charge, Ms Nurul standing behind her.
Before it starts proper, there was also a short time of warm up for the kids and parents. As you can see, I conveniently excused myself because I was the photographer.
Jayne followed the exercise with perfection. Ok, I am biased. Which father isn’t?
Why that pitiful face?
Jayne actually used sign language to ask for water. So funny.
Finally, it’s her turn to play. Poor girl, she is already quite tired after sitting on the basketball court for 15mins waiting for the first class to finish their games.
The N2 kids are playing ‘Passing the Egg"’ game. Hence, the chicken headgear.
Jayne was in second row. Do you see the small girl behind Jayne? Her name is Huixin and she is so adorable, and also so small-size. Both Yixin and Huixin are good friends in class.
And the race begins!
After her individual game, it was time for parents to be involved. Thankfully, Kless was with me and you would see the reason why. Opps! Only one lady on the starting line.
The game was to hold a balloon in between the child and parent and run towards the finishing line. You can imagine if it was me playing, poor Jayne would be hugging my knee instead.
All set, Klessis & Jayne, jiayou!!
It started quite well, but half way down the line, Kless ended up carrying Jayne instead of Jayne stepping on her feet.
Can you see that my dear wife was still holding on to her phone? Why ah?
Well, I guessed from their facial expressions, Kless probably enjoyed it more than Jayne.
It was a fun day for Jayne and for us too. Looking forward to more of such parent-child sports event.
Kless will play, I will take photos.
