THE INFANTS and reception students of West Terrace Primary had their day to shine during sports day at the school’s playing field last Friday.

Parents and older students of the school cheered on the young competitors as they competed in the 100 and 200 metres, the fill the bottle race and tug of war events.

Red House emerged champions with 147.5 points while Green House tied with Yellow for second place on 131 points. Blue finished at the rear with 118.5 points.

In the fill the bottle races, Kebra Bruce of the Infants B boys’ division won for Red House while Reanna Yearwood of Green House triumphed in the Infants A girls’ division.

The highlight and final event of the day was the tug of war which held the attention of everyone who was present. Blue House showed their superior strength by eventually pulling away the athletes of Yellow House.

Physical education teacher Allister Greaves said the infants’ sports day was separate from the juniors so that they could enjoy the friendly competition among themselves. (SM)
