Virtual Sports Day

Virtual sports day saw the children participate in a variety of activities that incorporated different skills. Thank you to the parents for the photographs and reports. There were some unconfirmed reports of thumb holding during the spud and spoon and corner cutting in other races but these are yet to be verified. The children adapted many of the ideas and added their own events.
