On the 20th of January 2017, the annual RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok Sports Day took place on our school campus as well as at the RIS sports facilities. All students eagerly look forward to the sports day every year and enjoy the day.
The day started with the traditional school assembly at 7.30 am in the sports hall. The students, teachers, administrative staff, parents, and other guests were greeted with a welcome by Mr. Jens Eggert, Vice Principal and Head of Secondary of RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok, who wished all participants a successful Sports day. Later, students from Grade 11 arranged a warm-up for the whole school to participate in.
As usual, an exciting program had been created for the Sports day. All students were competing in different teams and disciplines and took part in various activities, including track and field, swimming, and different sports games like Ultimate Frisbee or Baseball.
The highlight of the games was again the relay at the RIS Swiss Section - Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok sports field where mixed groups of all grades presented an exciting competition to the spectators.
At 12:45, all students and visitors came together for the closing ceremony of the Sports Day, where the most successful students were proudly presented with their awards.
All of the students and visitors thoroughly enjoyed the day and we thank Tilman Kröger, Remo Nyffenegger and Stefan Nyffenegger for the organization of this event, all the staff members for their support and the “Pausenbrotteam” for the delicious and healthy catering.
