There’s no better way to describe our Sports Day this year!
After a soggy start (we took all the stations outside only to be rained on thoroughly!) our spirits were not dampened (HaHaHa) because we had an INDOOR Sports Day backup plan!
The excitement was high and the kids were pumped! It was a great day for team spirit, but also for good sportsmanship and cooperation. It was also very gratifying for Mrs. Boekhout to see so many Grade 8 helpers that came from Nestor!
Rain, Rain, go or stay, we don’t care when it’s SPORTS DAY!
So… this year we got the excitement of an INDOOR Sports Day! (Mrs. B. had only just finished setting up her outdoor “Cracker and Whistle” race, when the rain started to soggy up the crackers!)
Some of the indoor races were the same as the outdoor races, but some of the MOST FUN races were exclusive to an Indoor Sports Day! The Stack and Build competitions were FANTASTIC (even if Mrs. B. had to scold some parents for spoiling the “I can do it by myself” pride) and we still got to do the Sponge and Water race in the undercover area. The three big KEYNOTES for Sports Day are FUN!GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP! EXERCISE! We definitely had all three of these, with only a little reminder or two for “appropriate behaviour”. The final scores were SO CLOSE that I won’t even comment!
What an exciting day! The rain “rained itself out” the day before, so we had a fresh clean start to our activities. The Blue Blasting Bananas, the Canucks Green Men, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers were on high energy mode all day!
After a BIG BANNER team-building activity, we headed out to a “breakfast supplement” at our first station with the Cracker and Whistlerace! It was a good thing, because the second station wasTug-o-War… always a favorite!
Fun! Good Sportsmanship! Team Effort!
What does that spell…???

We had a fabulous Sports Day (again!) but this year it was INDOORS! It is always SO disappointing to be “rained out”, so a few years ago our school set up a plan for an Indoor Sports Day. This year the weather proved it was a good idea!
There were lots of exciting stations, all over the school… in the gym, the multi-purpose room, down hallways, in the library, in the Resource Room, and even in some classrooms! We ran, jumped, hoola-hooped, dressed up, balanced, squished wet sponges AND MORE! One of the favourite stations was the parachute, and even our Stuffie mascots got to get in on the action here!
