PYP at Learning Alliance International is not confined to the classroom alone. The outdoors is explored for music, reading and art activities thus sharing not only the space but the joy of learning with others on campus. Sports constitute a major part of the academically challenging and dynamic Primary Years Program. It was in this spirit that PYP Olympics was held on the 3rd- 7th February, 2018.
The loud drum beat and thumping of students’ feet on the ground for a disciplined Parade set the rhythm for the event, followed by an oath-taking ceremony. The students of PYP then moved on to an energizing Zumba, followed by an astounding Gymnastics Display including Cart wheels, Dive roles and Pyramids. Amidst the cheering and encouragement for the young athletes from the parents, teachers as well as fellow students, the races began. The students of PYP I-V participated in Ball in the Bucket race, Grasshopper race, Zig-Zag race and Hurdle race. Warmed up by the races, the students proceeded to an invigorating football match, followed by the prize distribution ceremony.
The event concluded with the Taekwondo performance, which included Tile breaking, both wood & marble and an astounding demonstration of Nunchucks, which is a traditional Okinawan martial arts weapon. Everyone in attendance was in awe of the coordination, perfection and impact of this display. It was great to witness the sophistication and ease with which the students conducted themselves through these highly challenging moves.
The fantastic turnout of the parents added up to the festive spirit of the event with the colourful ambiance leaving every one energized.
