SHS News and Announcements
The SHS Olympics is a favourite event of The Sterling Hall School. An entire day is devoted to outdoor activity after our Spring Athletic Assembly starts the day off with accolades for our athletic stars.
We all move to the field to watch runners compete in the Crawford Mile. Boys have qualified throughout the year in HPE class by clocking up the best times for their mile runs. Fifteen boys each from the Junior and Intermediate divisions compete in two separate races. Runners were very close to breaking the record of 5:29 set in 2007, with Head Boy Toby running a close time of 5:40.
A multitude of fun and engaging age-specific activities are set-up around the field. Boys move from station to station before everyone gathers to watch the exciting House Relay. Parents, faculty, staff and students from every grade run like crazy to win House glory in this highlight of the day!
After all the fun, Closing Ceremonies include an awards presentation and a pizza lunch hosted by our wonderful PA. It really is one of the best days of the year!
