IBDP Staff & Students Try out 2.4km Run
Bonding Day activity for IBDP students and teachers on 5th Nov was a 2.4km run, as the culmination of the international physical fitness tests they started last week. All the students and their teachers did their best to run, jog and walk round the inner track ten laps, before they were individually timed and recorded at the finishing line. "I'm dying!" exclaimed one of the students as he reached the end of his run and "collapsed onto the field". When suggested that they do the run every week, another student reacted with a pained look of fright. Observing the heavy panting and sweating on the field at the end of the fifteen to twenty minutes, it was obvious that this was a tough run. The students and teachers then enjoyed a fun game of 'tangled hands' to call it a day. Despite the exhaustion, it was a great activity for 'letting off steam' and exercising everyone's bodies, especially in the colder weather. Of course, a sense of togetherness is also much to be appreciated in Bonding Day events.
