LASTING TRANSITIONS

Transitions commence new adventures. Make 'em last…

Sports Day

“Sports Day” is a competitive and delightful event that normally takes place in May at most public elementary schools throughout South Korea. It’s a day purely dedicated to the enjoyment of sports, friendly competition, outdoor activities, and exercise. At my elementary school, each teacher is in charge of organizing and conducting a specific sports-related activity, and amid all the various activities, teams that are created within each grade compete among themselves for honor and small prizes. While I’ve never organized or been in charge of a sports activity, my main role on Sports Day during the last 3 years has been the official photographer. The last two years I had been able to snap some fairly decent photos, and this year was no different. It’s always a pleasure to be counted on to take photos during events as it reminds me of my journalist days, which were days I think about often. Since I had not yet created a blog about Sports Day, I figured I’d quickly make one solely composed of a few photos of my students in action. Students really had a great time as always, and the photos duly demonstrate this.
