Winter Fest Olympics

An excited grade 1 girl preparing to play one of the indoor games at the Winter Fest Olympics

 

The highlight of this year’s Catholic Schools Week (which was two weeks ago) was a set of activities planned for Thursday afternoon called “Winter Fest”. These activities were team-based and inspired by the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Every student from Sadochok to grade 8 was assigned to a team, and each team was associated with a particular country participating in the Winter Olympics. As much as possible, students were asked to dress in the colours of their country’s flag.

 

 
A popular indoor activity was drinking hot chocolate in the front foyer of the school

 

Half of the Winter Fest activities were scheduled to take place indoors, and the other half were scheduled to take place outdoors in the playground – 10 different activities in total. Since the weather during Catholic Schools Week was too cold for outdoor activities, the Winter Fest Olympics were postponed to Tuesday. February 27.
