Today ended a particularly active week of school for English Class pupils when they joined all of the other pupils in Cygnaeus School to participate in Spring Sports Day. There were hoards of activities for pupils arranged all over town. Some activities were in the school yard, some activities for older pupils were on the island of Kirjurinluoto and some activities were held at the Sports Stadium.
There were traditional field day games like tug-of-war, a boot throwing competition, as well as team challenges where groups had to work together as one to complete the challenges.
At the sport stadium the sports organization LiikU had arranged all sorts of sport activities for the day, including Finnish baseball, football track and field activities and a new sport called “tossupallo” (slipperball?) that combined aspects of ice hockey and floorball.
