Kids from the Lighthouse School enjoyed wheelchair races, cheering and sprinting on Friday at the school’s annual Sports Day.
Approximately 107 students took part in the half-day event.
Deputy Principal Olga Gourzong said every child gets an opportunity to show their strengths, whether it is by rolling a ball or sprinting, and everyone participates in the activities.
“It is lots of fun and no one loses at the end of the day,” she said.
Parents and guardians sitting on the sidelines or following students down the tracks shouted encouragement, along with teachers, to spur the students on. Caught up in all the excitement, students cheered loudly and laughed at all the activities taking place while urging their classmates to keep on going.
Pat Bynoe-Clarke of Caribbean Utilities Company said each year CUC staff volunteers to help out with the sports activities at the Lighthouse School.
“We keep scores, help with coordinating and do whatever is necessary to make the sports day a success,” she said.
“We are delighted to be able to attend the event each year.”
