9月の富三では、運動会がありました。運動会はスポーツフェスティバルです。小中学生は赤白青黄に分かれて走ったりして競います。いろいろな競技で点数を取って順位を決めます。点数には関係ありませんが、1・2年生はダンス、3・4年生は日本の伝統的な踊り、5・6年生は組み立て体操で体でいろいろな形を表現します。

今年は赤組が優勝しました。1から9年生で力を合わせて頑張れと仲間を応援する姿はかっこよかったです。また、中学生〈特に9年生〉の短距離走やリレーでは足の早い人がたくさんいて、走る姿はすごかったです。

September is a sport carnival season at Tomio Daisan, when everybody at school practices so hard until the actual sport carnival. The whole school from Year 1 to Year 9 grouped into four different teams; red, white, blue and yellow. Then they competed against each other to score points for their team. Some performances were nothing to do with earning points, but they were still important parts of this carnival. Years 1 and 2 students danced beautifully, Years 3 and 4 students did Japanese traditional dancing, and Years 5 and 6 did their coordinated group gymnastic performance. Another highlight was to look at how student leaders from each team cheered up their own team (as you can see on the photo above).

This year, the red team won! Congratulations!!!
