Just like the previous years, this year, MIGS hosted the annual Cross-Country event on the 5th of October, but unlike previous years, we had a Zumba fitness session as a warm-up. The instructor showed us some various styles of dance, and everyone, including the junior and senior students, were really entertained to the wonderful beats.
After enjoying 30 minutes of the dance, we started with our first race by the reception kids. Each child had to run with their parents. Meanwhile, the racers from each category were given bananas in order to get enough energy for their long-distance running.
Then the junior students were running in an ascending order of grades. The most exciting turn of events was when the senior students started running. It took a long time compared to the junior school because we had a longer distance to run, about 4000m for under-15s, and 5000m for over-15s.
After a tiring day, we had the prize giving ceremony. The winners went up to the stage, got their medals and took a picture with Mr Rodney. About 1:30 pm, the students were dismissed.
