SPORTS DAY: DEVELOPING A SENSE OF UNITY AND FRIENDSHIP THROUGH EVENT

By: Julita Kantod


Holy Trinity Parish Tawau : Holy Trinity Kindergarten Mission School organized a half day sports event, before school holiday, on the 25th May 2017 from 7 in the morning to 12 mid-day.

Out of 177 students, where one hundred and more are non-Christians, ranging from 4 to 6 years old, happily and joyfully expressed the moment of being “free” from study. Some 150 or more parents came along to support and accompanied their children in this program.
Other guests were from the Holy Trinity Kindergarten Board of Governor ( BOG) members, Sr. Mary Martha Jonik, Seminarian Raymond Lee and the Social Communication (SOCCOM) members .
The event began with the lining up of all students followed by marching into the field track, simultaneously divided themselves into 8 groups according to its name: Love ,Peace, Joy, Grace, Hope, Trust, Charity and Faith, derived from the gospel, to retain the ethos of the Mission School.
Once the students have lined up, the national anthem was sang and followed by an opening prayer led by Sr. Mary Julita Joseph, the Principal of Holy Trinity Kindergarten School.
Mrs. Agnes, the team leader of the event, in her short speech to all present, shared the beauty of having Sports Day for the children. “It helps them to develop their mind to be healthy and active children. This event also contributed in fostering the spirit of brotherhood and also a sense of belonging, friendship and unity among them” she said.
Together with 11 other teachers and some volunteers from the parent programs, they proceeded with the tally match and finally, with the giving out of presents to the winners.
We have much to learn from the students in their genuine happiness, while playing with friends, regardless of races and belief. Sports day, which ended at 11.30 in the morning, strengthened the spirit of unity and friendship as an example to our future generation.
