When I arrived at Marybank Primary, Sports Days were quite traditional in that they were great for pupils who were good at sports. But as we know not everyone is into sport, and it can be quite dispiriting for kids who constantly come last in races or other events that focus purely on winners.
After this sports day we changed future sports days to involve everyone competing on their own in mixed groups, gaining points for their House. This meant everyone was contributing, gaining points and feeling successful as they helped their whole team to win. There was still room for running events and obstacle races, as well as the parents races at the end of the group events.
Here are some of the traditional fun races at the end of Sports Day 1992.
