It was a usual steamy Mombasa day, with the exception of a most welcomed cloud cover for most of the morning. The four "house teams" enthusiastically cheered on their athletes. Red house were tight and organized and thanks to the effort of their committed house captains, were judged as the "most disciplined team".

Abdulrahman and Lesley in grade 6 enjoyed the competitiveness and described the day as "wonderful" as they were able to "show off" their athletic prowess. Dev Hirani in grade 3 enjoyed the sack race most: "I knew I had tried my best and I came second". Darshil, in grade 5, said that the cross country event was his favorite, as it was the most challenging.

Congratulations to yellow house who won the event overall. It was a fun-filled day and enjoyed by everyone present. Thank you to Mr Anthony Ndungu for all the incredible hard work in the organization and coaching of some 270 students for this memorable day!
