Field Day is more than just a day of fun; it is a celebration of the resilience, strength, and spirit of our students. The afternoon is packed with a variety of activities that appeal to the diverse interests and talents of our girls. Soccer and cricket matches are the main attractions, showcasing the skills and teamwork that our students have developed throughout the year under the guidance of the coaches at Soccer in the Streets. These games are not only a test of physical ability but also an opportunity for the girls to bond and support each other, fostering a sense of community and belonging.

Soccer in the Streets has been an invaluable partner, teaching soccer to our girls all year long and providing the resources needed to make Field Day a success. Their dedication and support have played a crucial role in enriching the lives of our students and creating opportunities for growth and development.

In addition to the sports, there are plenty of other activities to enjoy. Sidewalk chalk provides a creative outlet for those who wish to express themselves through vibrant, colorful drawings. Thanks to Ms. Dena, we get to try hilarious activities like trying to knock over a water bottle with pantyhose on our heads and a ball inside the leg, which always leads to bursts of laughter!

Field Day is a reflection of our commitment to providing a holistic education that goes beyond academics. It is a day where our students can let loose, have fun, and celebrate their achievements. It is also a reminder of the power of community and the impact of supportive partnerships. As we look back on another successful school year, we are grateful for the moments of joy and laughter that Field Day brings and look forward to many more in the years to come.
