19/03/10:  Yellow does two-peat at Vern ‘N’ Llew Sports Meet by Curtis Morton
Yellow house once again dominated to be the champion house at the Vern ‘N’ Llew Pre school annual sports meet for the second consecutive year.
The impressively run meet was held under the distinguished patronage of Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Barrett and after a dignified march past which was incidentally won by Green House, the athletes then took time out to entertain the sizeable crowd on hand.
The races included the potato race, the socks and shoes race, the dress up race, the 40 meters flat, the fill the bottle race, the thread the roll race, the sack race and the tyre race.
There were moments to smile about when some children bolted towards the finish line only for one or both of their shoes to fall off or the thread to fall  away from the roll.  The tyre race also had is moments of hilarity as some of the tyres took courses not meant by their would- be chauffeurs.
To end the day, the Teachers had a show down of their own with Head  Mistress Collins pulling up an early back seat while Teacher Manners raced to the finish line in first place.
There were also some past students’ races and then the parents decided to entertain their children.  In the female parents’ race, Grace Patterson hit the tape first and the photo finish is yet to determine the final male parents’ race as Earl Boddie, Mr. Hill and at least three other Fathers ended in a tight huddle.
The final scores were:
Yellow house-champions—166 points
Orange house -155
Green House 147

11/03/10:  Red Dominates V’s and J’s Sports Meet

Even as the general populace on Nevis continue to work overtime on preparations for the grand mini-Olympics event commonly referred to as the Inter Primary Sports meet, the attention has now turned from the Primary and Secondary schools to the remaining Sports meets to be held by some of the Pre schools.

The V’s and J’s Preschool was forced to abandon any thoughts of hosting their Sports meet at the usual Hard times grounds due to wet conditions there and inclement weather.
Even at the short notice, hundreds of spectators, showed up to witness engage each other on the track at the Villa ground in Charlestown.

The meet was held under the patronage of Mr. Roger Fyfield, parent and former champion long distance runner on Nevis.

There was just one major disappointment,  as the races and their results were constantly affected due to the interference of over enthusiastic parents and other loved ones.
At one time the Headmistress threatened to abort the meet if she did not receive adequate cooperation.
Fortunately, the meet continued to its scheduled conclusion.
The overall results saw:
Red-champions with 258 points
Green—second with 244 points
Gold –third 234 points.
The Victor Ludorum was Jacquan Chapman of Green house with 33 points
The Victrix Ludorum was Kishawn Smithen of Red house with 33 points.

08/03/10:  Red dominates Naomi’s Pre School Cross country events

The Naomi Pre School held its annual cross country races on Friday 5th March.  Quite a number of the related parents took time from their busy work schedule to ensure that they were present to encourage their children.

The children did not disappoint.  From the tiny tots who had only to run from the base of the slight incline from the school to the top, to the older children who extended their run past the nearby corner, they were all cheered on with equal enthusiasm.  In a day of improved technology, the cameras were working overtime as the children neared the finish line.  Even at that age, there was evidence of hands being  raised in victory and obvious tears from some who were disappointed with their final placings.

The top results were:

Under 3 girls: 1st Jinyah Matthew
Under 3 boys: 1st Steadari Pemberton
Pre school girls: 1st Tyra Phillip
Pre school boys: Remigio Powell

24/02/10:  Green House dominates at Maude Cross Prep Sports by Curtis Morton

The Maude Cross Prep school held its annual sports meet at the Elquemedo Willet Park on Tuesday 23rd February under the patronage of Mrs. Gwenneth Archibald who was immaculately attired in her African wear.

The mini international event saw local athletes mixed with individuals of Chinese descent and Indian origin, among others.

The small crowd on hand however, got a rare treat as the little ones gave it their best effort and excited with some close races, well blended with several instances of humour.

The last race of the day, the 4x 100 meters relay, was arguably the race of the day. The athletes all ran their first leg well, but slowed up badly on the second and third  relay stations,  Young Holly ran back to take the baton from his team mate and Carlon Tuckett followed suit to snatch the baton from his teammate as well.  The two then came roaring don the track.  The members of the crowd literally stood to a man, to witness the end result.  Carlon covered the distance really quickly but Holly was able to hold on to a narrow lead as he hit the tape. A proposed Parents’ race did not materialize.

The overall results:

Class Champions
Girls: Adianca English (Gold) - 40 points
Boys: Jahmarley  Lawrence (Green) - 60 points
Girls: Sushakay Nisbett (Green) - 31 points
Boys: Carlon Tuckett (Gold) - 37 points

Victor Ludorum:  Jahmarley Lawrence
Victrix Ludorum:  Adianca English
