The annual YIS Cross Country will be held in Negishi park on Thursday, November 12th.
The students will have choices to run 1 lap (1.3km) or 2 laps (2.6km). They will set their own goals and try to achieve them on that day.
Every PE class from Grade 3-5 will have the opportunity to complete some practice in advance of this exciting day. Students will be bussed to Negishi Park during two special PE lessons ahead of the day (Grade 4 & 5 : October 21st and November 4th, Grade 3 : October 21st and November 6th). The PE department will be sharing more information about the event as it nears, so be sure to check back to this blog regularly.
Gr3-5 students who are keen to complete more training might like to talk to their parents about adding some extra walking, bicycle riding or perhaps a game of tennis, hockey or any other sport that gets the heart racing and the legs moving.
As the holiday approaches, it might be time to think about whether students have the most appropriate gear for Cross Country and PE, some ideas may include:
All students need to wear proper athletic running shoes. Please do not buy the brightest lovely colored ones you see. Please go to a running/athletic shoe specific shop, take your old shoes and then talk to the person who know about feet, shoes, and exercise.
Sports Shorts/shirts etc.
Try and choose sport fabrics and then buy some warmer layers for colder weather. All YIS students are required to wear a YIS T-shirt to PE which can be purchased in the store.
The school store hours are:
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 8:15 – 11:30 am
