PYP Spartan Race & Charity Market
On October 21, we had a fun and adventurous obstacle course.
Students in each class were divided into their house colors for the race. We gathered together in the gym at 1 p.m. where, we carefully listened to the instructions and couldn’t wait to get going!
After understanding the instructions and schedule, we went to the playground. We sweated a lot in the sunshine! We were crossing obstacles, jumping grids, climbing, and flipping tires. We really enjoyed the varied obstacles. Most importantly, although the whole course was long and challenging, all of us completed the race with the encouragement of our teachers. Thank you for encouraging and supporting us!
After the obstacle race, we had a charity market in the gym. Our parents brought some home-made food and accessories to sell. Some of my friends sold books that they used when they were younger. I think selling books is a good thing, first it is environmentally responsible and second it is a transfer of knowledge, because all good things should be shared! This was also a fundraising opportunity. All the money raised at the market will be donated to the Suzhou Animal Shelter. And so far, we have raised 6535.3 RMB from the charity market！
What we were most looking forward to was the raffle! Raffle prizes included stationery and sports goods provided by parents, bonuses of 10 to 100 house points, extra hours given for recess, and the most attractive one was NO HOMEWORK FOR A WEEK! We were so excited when our house mates were picked house point’s prize and we just couldn’t believe that all the extra recess and no homework prizes went to Grade 3B!! so lucky!
Finally, Mr. Ashley announced the ranking of the relay race. Congratulations to the Yellow House winning first place, with the fastest group being Grade 4 Yellow House - 5 min 38 seconds, hooray! Great thanks to all of our lovely teachers and parents! And well done Elementary School!
