May 16, 2014: Sports Day for Grades 5-12

The Sports Day is an annual event, organized by the SMV. In the morning the mixed-age groups (grades 5-8 and grades 9-12) will compete against each other in soccer, basketball, beach volleyball and athletics. There will be an awards ceremony after lunch, followed by a screening of the movie “Goal” in periods 7 and 8.

All students will receive a t-shirt sponsored by the SMV and are expected to be in sports attire wearing sneakers. For environmental reasons, the SMV is asking each student to bring their own reusable water bottle. There will be water stations, where the students can re-fill their bottles.

The school ends after the Sports Day at 3:10 pm.
