Sports Day at Pickering College began in 1929 and is a day when the entire school comes together to celebrate the joy of effort in athletics as well as some friendly competition.
The tradition continues today with students in JK to Grade 12 competing on four House Teams – Red, Blue, Gold and Silver. With a mixture of ages divided into each House, Sports Day truly brings out the spirit of community as older students compete and help their younger Housemates with events geared to their age group, including games and running races.
The excitement of the final relay races is huge, with parents, staff, alumni and students gathered at the end of the day to cheer on the best of their House athletes! Congratulations to Silver House who is the 2017-2018 House Champion.
Thank you to Mehmet (Mali) Uysal '18 for putting together this video that so perfectly captures the fun and excitement of Sports Day.
