The Annual YCIS Chongqing Sports Day, is often plagued by inclement weather, however, with a later start date this year, YCIS Chongqing’s biggest sporting event of the year was blessed with fantastic weather. The beautiful spring weather would signify the start of a fantastic day of sunshine, house spirit and personal bests.
With constant growth in student enrollment, over 400 Dragon and Phoenix House students from K3 to Year 13 could be seen taking part in track and field throughout the course of the day. Each student took part in a total of 6 events, followed by some extremely exciting relay races at the end of the day. In true YCIS tradition, this was followed by student and staff 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.
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. Once again, this proved to be a day favourite. One should also be extended to all YCIS Chongqing staff for all their hard work before and on the day. An event like this would not run smoothly without their assistance.
To build the suspense, individual age-group champions will be acknowledged for their individual efforts as well as overall house champions announced at a whole school assembly next week. As a YCIS community, and in the spirit of friendly, yet fierce competition, the strongest house team will be revealed. This year, will it be Phoenix House who takes the prize, or will it be Dragon House who will claim the Sport Day Shield?
