LAMPMAN - With the wind howling, the heat soaring and the sun shining, the Lampman School held their track and field on Friday, June 17 for kindergarten to grade six.
If it were not for the wind, it would have been a scorcher for the young athletes.
Beginning at 9:30 am the eager students took their places at each event, while high school students gladly helped out.
Every student would rotate in their groups to each event. They all received a purple participation ribbon. All the ribbons for the day were sponsored by TNT Oilfield Services, for which the school was incredibly grateful.
Students cheered each other on, while teachers or a parent would demonstrate how the event worked, if a student needed help. After all, it was to be a fun day.
It was great to see so many parents, grandparents, and friends out to see their kids.
At lunch time, the hungry crew went indoors to enjoy a BBQ lunch of burgers and hotdogs and a delicious cold drink.
It was now off to do the track events, where everyone worked hard to cross the finish line.
Once all the events had been completed, a scavenger hunt was orchestrated for all. This was great entertainment.
With the heat of the day, they all needed to be cooled off, and this was arranged by the Lampman fire department. The kids could be heard down the street with screams and giggles as they got hosed down.
It was such an enjoyable day for all involved.
