TAWAU – Holy Trinity Kindergarten Mission School organised a half-day sports event before the school holiday on 25 May 2017.
Out of the 177 students, over a hundred were non-Christians, ranging from 4 to 6 years old. The students relished the joy of being “free” from classes. Some 150 or more parents came along to support and accompany their children.
Other guests present were members of the Holy Trinity Kindergarten Board of Governor (BOG), Sister Mary Martha Jonik, Seminarian Raymond Lee and the Social Communications (SOCCOM) members.
The event began with the students lining up and marching into the field track. They then divided themselves into eight groups according to names derived from the Gospel: Love, Peace, Joy, Grace, Hope, Trust, Charity, and Faith.
Once the students had lined up, the national anthem was sung, followed by an opening prayer led by Sister Mary Julita Joseph, the head of the kindergarten.
In her speech, Agnes, the team leader of the event, said, “It [the sports day] helps them [the children] to develop into healthy and active children. This event also contributes in fostering the spirit of brotherhood and also a sense of belonging, friendship and unity among them.”
She, together with 11 other teachers and some volunteers from the parent programmes, proceeded with the telematics and the giving out of prizes to the winners.- Julita Kantod
