It may sound amazing but after 2.5 years in Horizon School, Ace has NEVER taken part in any of the Sports Days!
In his first year in Dubai, he was sick on the day of the Sports Day and did not go to school.
Last year, his sports day happened during the period we went back to celebrate Chinese New Year and so he did not take part.
This year, he finally gets a chance to take part and I am really excited :)
The children will be from different houses and all the points are awarded according to placement and there will only be a house champion at the end:)
He told me the night before that when he tried to do the hurdles the first time, someone laughed at him and said he was slow because he hooked his leg and tripped over the hurdle. The PE teacher scolded the person who said that and he said why this person was not punished cos the last time he had lack of sportsmanship and called someone slow, he was sent to the principle's office. I told him different teacher different standard mah...
I also explained to him that everyone who start to try something for the first time may not do it very well. For him as a kinesthetic learner, he has to learn by doing. So after he do first time liao.. he knows wat to improve and he will get better. He told me after that he is very good at it already... so I told him that is good lor..
