After weeks of preparation, marked by hours of dedicated and tireless practice and rehearsals, the anticipation and adrenaline was its peak as the D-Day drew near.
Finally, on Friday, 17th February, 2023, it was D-Day. The excitement on the faces of the children and staff alike was uncontainable as the second edition of the BGS Games Festival took centre stage.
The children showed the stuff they were made of as this year’s Games Festival was keenly contested, albeit in a spirit of fun and fitness. The day featured events such as march past, 100m sprint (for both junior & senior boys & girls), 4 by 100m relay (boys & girls), skipping relay, tug of war, adventure race, egg & spoon race, catching the train and many, many more. Not to forget the spectacular cheerleading and calisthenics displays by the children. Our children are indeed multi-gifted!
Performance after performance, the children wowed the seated parents and guests who turned out in their numbers to cheer the children on. It was indeed an unforgettable day at Tajudeen Olanrewaju Field, Yaba, Lagos.
Each house at the games – Bloom House (green), Joseph House (yellow), Kings House (blue) and Susan House (red), went home with their head high as the children brought their A-game.
Oh, the parents and guests themselves were more than just spectators and cheerleaders at the games! They too took to the field. Oh yes! Our fit-as-a-fiddle mummies and daddies ran their own 100m sprints, while the grannies had a 50m egg & spoon race. It was equally keenly contested and drew huge cheers.
To say the various House Masters and House Mistresses did a superb job coaching and readying the children for the big day would be apt. The organizing committee – headed by Mr. Silas Inyang could be proud of the outing.
