New-style Sports Days prove popular at GIS

Going for the long jump.

The PE department at Garden International School (GIS) arranged three ‘new-style’ Sports Days recently. The first was for Reception to Year 2 students, followed by a day for Year 3 to 6 athletes, and then a final day for secondary. The new-look Sports Days saw students compete in their Houses in a range of fun-filled events and track races. As well as the usual javelin, long jump, relays and sprints, there were also tug-of-war challenges, sack races and ping pong contests.

With the introduction of the GIS Titans ‘Wall of Fame’ there was some great competition in the track and field events as students looked to see if they had made it into the record books. GIS is based in Ban Chang near Pattaya.
