Another exciting sport, the ‘Sparta Relay Run’, demonstrated the students’ agility and endurance as they swiftly passed batons to their teammates. The crowd was again captivated, fuelling the students’ determination to succeed.

The ‘Stacking Cups Challenge’ was one of the most engaging activities of the day. The students showcased their agility and precision by skillfully building towers using colourful cups, demonstrating steady hands and unwavering focus.

The cheers from the audience provided constant encouragement, motivating the students to construct impressive structures.

Many parents also actively participated in the games, with the highlight being the beanbag-throwing activity.

Laughter and cheers filled the air, creating a warm and inclusive atmosphere.

The event concluded with a prize-giving ceremony, where the Red House emerged as the champions. The winners’ faces glowed with pride as they received their well-deserved medals and prizes.
