Sports Day in Corpus Christi Primary School is one of the highlights of our school year for a number of reasons. Various activity centers are set up on the school yard which are designed to enhance a large range of skills including throwing, catching, running, aiming etc.
Children from all age ranges are grouped together to ensure that a wide range of abilities are included in every group. Teams gather points at every center and the winners are those who have gathered the most points at the end of the final center. The format of the day ensures that every child is given the opportunity to shine. The group centered nature of the programme avoids the self-esteem bruising potential so often witnessed in those who don’t do well in those individual events. The children are given the opportunity to experience cooperation, interpersonal relationships and leadership skills in a fun-filled, positive environment
