The secondary school boys had a great time celebrating their sports day on Wednesday 22nd February 2017 at the Newport Athletics Track. The weather was great and we started the 100m races at 10.20 a.m. after reading the surah Al Fatiha. The highlight of the day was the 100m relay which for the first time included the teachers race which was won by Ali House.
Akram Boru 10E broke a ten year old high jump record by clearing 160 cm. Brothers Yasein Yasin And Stefanos did a great job commentating the races. The boys were very competitive and were cheering on their team mates throughout the races. We ended the sports day with a cheer competition and a tug-of-war between the year 12 boys and the male teachers. The male teachers easily won the tug-of-war of course. This year Ali House broke the stronghold of Omar House by winning the sports day. Omar came second while Abu Bakar and Othman were joint third.
The boys behaved perfectly and were on task picking up rubbish after our Dzuhur prayers. The year 12 boys were hugging their teachers at the end of the sports day. This may be their last sports activity before the VCE exams at the end of the year which we wish them all the best, inshaAllah. The HPE Department wish to thank the teachers on duty for their diligent work and the SWD team for helping to supervise the students at the sports day venue and the excellent behaviour of all our students. Alhamdulillah.
