May is when we celebrate sports day as part of Education Week, and this year all the students and teachers had another fun day. The school is split into four houses – green, red, blue and purple – who work together to compete against the other houses. Each house is named after a person who has played an important role in the schools development.
First up is the banner and cheer leading competition:
Wilson’s House – the Blue House – is named after Francis and Vernon Wilson, the founders of Holy Cross school.
Next up is William’s House – The Red House – named after Mrs Grace Williams, former Principal of Holy Cross School.
Then came Ostenso’s House – the Purple House – named after Mr Brian Ostenso, the Chairman of the Holy Cross Education Foundation Board.
Then finally the reigning champions from Babb’s House – Green House – named after Mrs Carol Babb, former General Manager of the Anglican Schools of Belize.
Then came the events, and I apologize that there are only a few photos here, but at least they give a taste of the action and fun.
And finally, the tug of war, which actually took place a few days earlier as part of the lead up, along with other fun races including the slow bike race (how slow can you ride a bike… last person over the finish line wins!)
But who won? Green House took top honors for the third year running. Thank you to all who participated.
