RUN EVERBODY, RUN!

So today the students had the chance to do something that they love to do the best, running - which meant they did not have to stay in class, at least. The cross-country is one of the school's biggest events where both morning and afternoon students come at the same time. People started arriving as early as at 7:00 am when the noise started to develop, but in a good way.

More time was actually spent managing these kids than the running, which involved: (1) Get them to sit in their own classes so attendance could be taken. (2) Get them to sit in their own sports houses and asked them to pin the coloured labels on their shirts. (3) Separate them into different age categories - for afternoon session: under 13 and 15, boys and girls. (4) Move them to the starting line. When they started arriving to the finish line, until the result was announced, and letting them go home, was another story.

no other way to control them from jumping up and down than to let them sit on the ground

this is just like Olympic Games
