On March 28, we were greeted by beautiful sunshine and blue skies which would signify the start of a fantastic Sports Day of house spirit and personal bests.
With rapid growth in student enrollment this year, over 400 Dragon and Phoenix House students could be seen taking part in track and field events throughout the course of the day. Each student took part in a total of 6 events, followed by some extremely exciting relay races. In true YCIS tradition, this was followed by student, staff and parent relays, which was held at the end of the day.
Overall, student, staff and parent spectators were rewarded with exciting competition, nail-biting finishes, personal bests and some much needed vitamin D after a long winter. At the end of the day, individual age-group champions were acknowledged for their individual efforts as well as overall house champions.
A very special thank you is extended to our fantastic YCIS Chongqing Parent Organization who provided healthy snacks, hot dogs and freshly blended fruit juices to keep our students fueled throughout the day.
As a YCIS community, and in the spirit of friendly, yet fierce competition, the strongest house team was revealed. This year, Phoenix House edged out Dragon House by 80 points to claim the winning position on the Sport Day Shield.
