This week we teamed up with ISMS (Inner Sydney Montessori School, Balmain) and Sydney Montessori School (Gymea) primary schools for a the Great Montessori Athletics Day at ES Marks Athletics Field, Moore Park with picture perfect autumn weather.
The idea behind uniting the three schools was simply to enjoy the experience of getting together with children from other Montessori schools. Close to 300 children aged 6-12 participated in a whole host of track and field events — sprinting, shot put, long jump, tug-o-war, etc. The camaraderie between the children was wonderful to see as they congratulated and encouraged each other. It wasn't about winning; it was about having-a-go and making new friends. It was a super fun day and it looks like we'll doing it all again next year.
