A reporter to Carmel Sports Day

5



On 20th November and 22nd November, we had our first English Sports Days at Kowloon Tsai Park Sports Ground.  They were special and not the same as those in primary school.  The Sports Days were conducted in English.  At the beginning, I was not used to it.  But after some hours, I got used to it.

On the first day, it was cloudy with a little sunshine.  On the second day, it was rainy and windy.  All Carmel students, including the Form Five students, arrived at the Sports Ground on time.  There were a lot of competition events in this year’s Sports Days.  I felt very excited about them.  Firstly, a Boys’ C Grade contestant called Fung Ming Kit won two gold medals.  He was a Form 2D student.  The two gold medals came from 100m and 200m sprints.  Although he could not break the two old school records, I still think he was the most excellent runner!

Secondly, the most exciting event was the Boys’ A Grade 4 x 100m relay race.  It was the highlight of the day.  There were four groups.  All sixteen people ran very fast.  They made the competition better and more exciting.  Spectators screamed loudly and waved their “Pong Bong Sticks”.  Finally, the winner was Virtue House.  Their members ran faster than the other three groups.

I could see support and rapport among many house members.  Nobody shed their tears or felt frustrated when they lost.  Nobody made fouls.  Teachers did not need to go out and disqualify people.

I would also like to report one other thing.  An accident happened on 22nd November.  A student from my class, Form 1E, broke his left arm.  He is Mui Chun Him, Louis.  When he was jumping over hurdles in the track, he fell two times but he still continued to run.  At the third time, he fell and broke his left arm.  An ambulance was called to take him to hospital.  He showed a good example for all of us.  He was so brave that he did not even weep.  He taught us not to give up when we fall or fail in our daily lives. 

The final result was announced.  The overall champion was “Loyalty House”.  Everybody clapped.  This year’s Sports Days were amazing and exciting.  I enjoyed the two days very much.  It was a wonderful experience for all of us.  I learnt that “The more you try, the more you will get”.  Never give up! And be united!  This year I was just a spectator in the auditorium.  Next year, I want to join at least one event.  Let’s do our best to make next year’s Sports Days even more spectacular!
