On a Wednesday in June was my junior high school’s Sports Day. The weather started off a bit rainy, got somewhat cloudy/clear, then couldn’t decide what it wanted to do the latter half of the day, but overall despite the rain here and there it was a good day for sports! Also I took a good 1200 pictures, so I’m just going to choose a few random ones to post:

Throughout the day the principal made sure to stay on top of handing out the awards for all the events

Finally the sports clubs competed in a relay against each other. It decided to rain again as well

Felt a bit bad for brass band, they had to lug these around the track. All the kids banged them when they crossed the finish line though, which was entertaining!

Finally, final award ceremony and clean up, and we were finished!
