Al-Hidayah Islamic School held their sports day on Wednesday the 22nd October 2014. Al-Hamdulillah! The weather was magnificent. Blue skies and a warm spring sun were cooled down by patchy clouds and a nice breeze.
All the students came decorated with streamer’s, banners and sports t-shirts in their faction colours (red, blue and yellow). Many parents attended the event in support of their children. For lunch, a delicious BBQ sausage sizzle was provided by staff. Thanks to all the parents who donated the hotdog buns.
There was loud cheering throughout the day and the children enjoyed the variety of activities, which included running events, relays, egg and spoon race, and tug-of-war.
At the end of the day, there was a medal presentation. The students were reminded to give thanks to the Almighty. Br Umar reminded us that the most important thing is to try your best. When you begin say “Bismillah” and when you finish say “Alhamdulillah” whether you win or not.
There were winners in the end and all the winners were humble and gentle towards their fellow competitors.
Congratulations to Blue faction who finished with the most points on the score board and were granted this year’s faction trophy. Alhamdulillah!
Beautiful weather for the Sports Day
Yellow wins the Tug of War
