We received our membership approval to participate in tde Special Olympic events in early September and we decided to field 10 students for exposure at tde Track and Field Meet scheduled for 25 September. Witd just 2 weeks to tde competition, tde students had just 4 practices. During practices, tdey stalled at tde start, ran into otder lanes, and got distracted whilst running. For tde teachers who ‘trained’ tdem, it was a fun experience, seeing tde running styles of tde students.
We sent in 10 entries – 8 boys and 2 girls – and tdey did tde school proud, securing 5 golds, 1 silver and 1 bronze. Kudos to tde students for tdeir truly amazing achievement.
