On Monday, the 7th of September 2019, Surabaya European School held its annual Athletics Day. This year, the event was held at Lapangan Thor Gelora Pancasila. Throughout the day, the students of SES had fought their way through their mild exhaustion, while teachers had taken on the challenge of supporting and demonstrating activities to the children. Some of these activities included javelin, shot-put, high jump and sprints, along with several other athletic activities. The parents, teachers and students had all successfully faced the ultimate challenge: the scorching hot weather. With the sun beating down on the earth at a whopping 34ºC, those participating at the Athletics Day were drowning in their own sweat. As the event came to an end, it was announced that the Komodo team had come in first place overall, however, everyone was a winner. This very successful event would not have happened without the hard work and integrity of the SES community.
At the end of the event, the students were provided pizza for lunch. The teachers were also given some doughnuts from SES parents as belated Teacher’s Day treat. Even in the blistering heat, the teachers enjoyed their surprise dessert and received them with gratitude evident on their faces. All the students left after the event and had a well-deserved rest after their exertion.
