TIS Sports Day

Next Friday, November 6, Tokyo International School will be holding their school Sports Day at Oifuto Chuo Kaihin Koen (Location: in Shinagawa. It is promising to be an exciting day for our school community. Primary School students will take part in a fun games circuit. Middle School students will participate in a Heptathlon which includes: high jump, long jump, javelin, shot put, 1500m, 100m and a relay race.

All students are expected to attend the event. Students who are unable to participate due to injury or health concerns will be able to assist officials and contribute to the House spirit!

School will start as normal and all students should go to their home rooms for registration. Please find below an outline of the day of each group:

K1-G4 students need to come in appropriate sports wear to school and we would encourage students to come in their House colours. G5-G8 students need to come to school in shorts, house t-shirts, closed sport shoes and should also bring a jumper, jacket or coat to stay warm in between events. Please remember to also provide your child with a named sun hat, sun cream and a water bottle to carry with them in a small bag throughout activities.

There will be no ordered lunches and students will need to have a packed lunch and some healthy snacks with them. There are no afternoon clubs on that day.

We welcome all parents to come down to the stadium to support the athletes. We would ask that all parents and spectators respect the lines delineating the areas for parents. The teachers and teaching assistants will make sure that the children have everything they need.

If you have any expertise in being an official or just wish to help in the afternoon for the G5-G8 activities, please let Adriaan know.

If there is cancellation of the Sports Day due to bad weather conditions, this will be announced on Friday by 6:00 a.m. and will be posted on the TIS blog, Manabi Mon and sent out by mass email. In that case a regular school day will take place. The makeup date of the Sports Day is Wednesday November 18th at the same location.

If you have any questions about the school athletics please feel free to contact Adriaan or Malgosia at school. Below this article you can also find the location of the evacuation site in case of an emergency. We look forward to a successful day, good sportsmanship and fun!
