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.

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.
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.
Red-champions with 258 points
Green—second with 244 points
Gold –third 234 points.
The Victrix Ludorum was Kishawn Smithen of Red house with 33 points.
The parents and relatives, who showed up on Friday 5th March to witness the cross country races at the Inez France Pre School, were thrilled beyond expectation.
The four races that were held, attracted a fair sized gathering and parents and siblings were seen running to and fro in cheering the children to the finish line. The races all commenced in the general direction of Paradise Beach with the four year olds having an extended run over their junior athletes in the three year category.

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
4 year girls: 1st Shyra Joseph
4 year boys; 1st Tyler Francis
The MAUDE SMITH Pre School held its annual SPORTS MEET on Thursday 25th February 2010 at the school grounds.
The PATRON of the day was MR. JALMYN MYERS a former champion athlete at the Charlestown Primary and Charlestown Secondary Schools.
The brief opening ceremony included a prayer, the rendering of the National anthem and an impressive profile read on behalf of the patron.
The two houses in Orange and Green then hit the track and competed fiercely for supremacy, urged on by a very vocal group of parents and siblings.
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:
Girls: Adianca English (Gold) - 40 points
Boys: Carlon Tuckett (Gold) - 37 points
Victor Ludorum: Jahmarley Lawrence
Green : 227 points
Gold : 189
Red : 118
