The students were not put off by the heat and participated enthusiastically whether on the track or cheering from the sides. Click to enlarge image

The teachers even got to run (albeit a bit slower than some of the students!) in an inter house teachers race at the end.

New school records were set by Caleb Munyasya (Yr 7/8 Discus – 18.52m and Yr 7/8 boys high jump 1.45m), Emmanuel Appunda (Yr 7/8 boys triple jump – 8.01m), Ahmed Fahmi (Yr 9/10 Boys high jump 1.58m) and Luqmaan Yasin (Yr 9/10 boys shot put 11.35m).

Well done to all those boys and girls and teachers who took part!
