The event was originally planned to be held at the Kelana Jaya Stadium but due to the recent haze situation, the kindy decided not to take the risk and moved it to the Sports Arena @ Sentosa, apparently belonging to Dato’ Lee Chong Wei. It was a good move, as the haze did return slightly a few days that week, though the arena wasn’t really the best place for the event. There was a lack of seats for parents, and since it’s an indoor, confined area, the photos didn’t turn out that well too L
Anyhow, the theme for the sports day was Space, and during the march in, each class held a placard with astronauts, spaceships, etc.

After the speeches by Pastor Daniel Ho and the principal, the event started with a performance by the 5-year old children.
Immediately after that, the games began. The name of each game was also aligned with the theme with names like Alien’s Busters Workout, Strike of the Jedi, Star Trail, Space Hop, Wall-E & the Space Granite, Space Escapee, Astronaut Relay and Meteor Shower.
Alien's Buster Workout - crawl like an alien, jump on the hula hoop and throw the ball into the basket
Strike of the Jedi - running zigzag on a spaceship, and strike the ball with the light saber
Star Trail - balancing the ball on a platter, collecting hula hoops and placing them back again on return
Space Hop - hop on the hula hoop, collect a ball and place it into a basket
Wall-E & the Space Granite - skipping through the hula hoops, and balancing a ball
Astronaut relay - hopping with a ball between the legs and balancing objects on the head and hands
Yan Yan took part in the Space Escapee game, and I thought her team came up first but it was recorded as 2nd place. Oh well! Every one gets a medal anyhow!

Yan Yan was so proud of her medal that she was showing it around to everyone at babysitter’s home. But her enthusiasm with the medal lasted all but one day J
