On the sports day, the entire campus was filled with laughter and joy. The morning sunlight streamed through the clouds, warm and bright, like a cheer for us. Principal Li Wenping of THIS delivered a speech to kick off the sports day. She emphasized the school’s tradition of sports spirit with the motto “No Sports, No Tsinghua”, and expressed her expectations for students to develop both a healthy physique and outstanding talents. The essence of sports lies not in winning or losing, but in the cooperation, inner strength, courage, respect, and challenging of limits. These values will help us become healthier, happier, and more limitless versions of ourselves. She also expressed gratitude to the parents who came to cheer for the students, their presence gave the students more confidence and courage to face challenges. She also hopes that all parents can strengthen their physical exercise and cultivate a strong physique, and contribute to the country’s health for fifty years.


Terry Fox Run


Before the official competition began, the primary and secondary school students, grouped by Spartan families and grades respectively, showcased their grade-level songs.


The first event was the running challenge. With the theme of the Terry Fox Run, THIS inspired students’ inner courage. Wearing sports uniforms of different colors according to their grade, they moved forward under the sunshine, paying tribute to this Canadian charitable runner and athlete. Every step the children took was a strong response to difficulties and setbacks, and every drop of sweat symbolized their love for sports and support for charitable causes. They embodied the spirit of perseverance with their actions and demonstrated unity and kindness. No matter how far they ran, they all became true young spartan heroes.


Fun Sport Activities 

for All Students

Next were the fun sports activities for the primary and secondary divisions. There were a total of nine different events, including hula hoop relay with soccer, crazy pipes, servers and catchers, target throwing, and fun soccer shooting etc. The students from Grade 12 acted as spartan leaders and helped organise the students from other homerooms to take part in different activities. Now, let’s follow the lens of the photographer to review the exciting moments of the students.
