We would like to thank all our parents for their support on this day and for the great fun we all had throughout the relay events. This was definitely the highlight of the day! Thank you to all the parents who assisted us as officials on both days. We sincerely appreciate your hard work and dedication!

In addition, thank you to our parents who helped at the refreshment stalls and to all the class representatives who did an enormous job here. Your contribution is greatly appreciated. Without your help, the athletics day would not have been such a great success.
