TRS Sports Day

On May 3rd, The Raining Season’s Primary School hosted its first ever Sports Day. Our school serves nearly ninety children, and many of the children come from the surrounding community. The kids, our staff, and families were all excited about this special day and the opportunity to cheer the kids on. Because we needed room for the kids to run, jump, and compete, the event was held at SS Camp Field in the Hill Station community.

The day began with the playing of Sierra Leone’s National Anthem. Throughout the day, the kids participated in events, including sprint races, musical chairs, pop the balloon, the three-legged race, and relay races. Sports Day is not only fun, but it also teaches the kids teamwork, perseverance, hard work, and sportsmanship. The kids wore matching shirts made just for the day that distinguished their teams, and they loved competing against their classmates. This year, they were divided into four teams – blue, yellow, white, and orange.

While Sports Day is a common event at schools in Sierra Leone each year, it is not a requirement. However, many schools hold a Sports Day as a part of their extracurricular activities. TRS’s first Sports Day was a fun day for the children and families. Families were invited to attend, and many brought food and drinks with them to keep the kids energized and ready to participate.

Now, the school year is winding down in Sierra Leone as the children are preparing for their end of year exams. Will you join us in prayer for a successful end to the school year?

Many blessings,

The Raining Season
