In total we had 64 pupils.

This helped the pupils gather the energy to start the day. The field had already been set up and marked. By 9:30 the pupils had finished the warm up and divided into group. The group consisted members from the various schools thus no school was on itself.
The groups formed were four and the pupils named the groups hence we had queens, champions, mabuda and walafi.

They were playing against themselves in two  groups  of five since they were ten.

After all the games were finished the pupils assembled together where we had a discussion which revolved on the sports day theme of healthy eating habits. The students differentiated what food they considered healthy versus the one they considered unhealthy. We also discussed of what a healthy or balanced diet consists .Eating vegetables, fruits, keeping a active lifestyle and drinking a lot of water was highly emphasized.We then prayed and had lunch which was rice, beans and cabbage, served by Elizabeth, adongo and flora .

The pupils were happy and they were happy to meet pupils from other schools. The event was over by 1pm and the pupils all left together. Joy and adongo cleared the marked field.The sports day was a success and none of the pupils got hurt or injured .One pupils from Olympic at the end got dizzy but was given first aid and she managed to go back to school and after the follow up she was fit and healthy.
