This year, our school held its annual athletics meet over two days from December 7.

The meet was not only the sporting highlight of the year, but also marked our last school event for 2010.

Captains and vice-captains of the four houses - Benevolence, Elegance, Integrity and Loyalty - performed impressive opening dances. Their moves really cheered up and encouraged their house members.

Then it was time for the track and field events. All the athletes tried their best to score points for their house. , Competition was keenest in the inter-class relay.

While the competitors did their best on the field to cross the line first, the cheerleaders were working hard off the field to cheer their house members on.

After some tough competition and loud cheers, the meet was won by Elegance House.

Even though the weather was cooler than last year, everyone's enthusiasm warmed not only the sporting ground, but also our hearts. It was a special and memorable day.
