Greenwood’s annual Spirit Day is an opportunity for the school community to gather and compete in a series of fun activities. The day’s activities offer plenty of House points as the race to House Championships nears its end. Students first met at school in their Houses to put on their House face paints and practise their House cheers. After arriving at Serena Gundy Park, every House performed their House cheers and they were scored for spirit, cohesion, clarity and creativity by three judges.
After the House Cheer-off winner was announced, the eight Houses were split into two groups with four Houses each and then both groups competed in a Head-to-Head Relay and Hula Hoop Relay. Moving on from the two relay races, it was time for the Tug-of-War competition which was followed by lunch. The Grade 12 leaders hosted a fun fair after lunch with a bevy of fun activities for students to try out. The day finished off with an ultimate frisbee match and a tire derby.
Thank you to everyone for bringing their spirit and to our Grade 12 leaders and staff for organizing another wonderful Spirit Day!
