No sleeping in for us today. We woke up early because it was Sports Day at Raimie's school. Despite the fact that he missed school for two weeks due to chicken-pox, three weeks before the Sports Day; he entered two events. Lucky for us and the rest who attended the sports day (children, teachers and parents alike) the day wasn't that hot so the heat was quite bearable.
Because Zaini is no longer a PIBG (PTA) member (he didn't attend the AGM in March), he wasn't involved in any judging or prize giving this year. It's going to be a quiet year for Zaini at Raimie's school this year; not being a PIBG member as he won't need to attend so many meetings, events or activities.
The respective sports houses being decorated with their respective colours. There seems to be quite a number of trainee teachers at his school this year, and they were pretty busy and excited organising and handling the sports day.
Each student got fried rice for breakfast before the start of the event, sponsored by the school canteen operator. Raimie, having had his breakfast at the Mamak earlier with us, opted out from taking the packed breakfast.
Raimie with one of his friends, Nicholas.
Unlike Raimie who always, always ignore us when we were at his school; all his friends are really friendly with us. To take this photo, I called out Nicholas for a photo and he roped in Raimie. My cool son doesn't think it's cool for his parents to be around him at school and he is not even a teenager yet!
Raimie with his relay team waiting for their turn to compete. He was the second runner in his team unlike last year when he was chosen as the last runner.
Watching the lower primary students (the 7 and 8 year olds) competing in their 4x50m dash was pretty hilarious. We saw runners lost in their own world and missed the start, wrongly passed batons - runners passed batons to rival members and even one who didn't run when he got the baton. We parents had a good laugh watching them.
Parents flocking by the side of the track, eagerly snapping away the children's race. I only took a few. I didn't check our camera's battery and it was low so I had to resort to using my handphone camera.
Raimie didn't enter any individual events and the two events he was in were team events. His team got 1st place in one and 3rd place in the other. Raimie dear, try harder next year! Make Papa (who used to compete on MSSM level way back when - I need to mention this because I'm such a show-off. Yahaha!!!) proud.
