Theme: Coping with Stress: At home or at school 

Stress is physical, chemical or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension. It is a way that our body responds to demands made upon us by the environment and our relationships, and our perceptions of those demands. The solution is to develop our coping skills, to adapt, to change, or to find methods to solve the problem.

Sports Carnival @ GSS 

COMPLETED

720am - 11am, Friday, 24 March 2017

Dear parents, you are invited to participate in the GSS Sports Carnival where you can enjoy a day of fun sporting activities with the GSS family.   Sports Carnival is a school wide event which aims to build school spirit among students and staff through various sports activities. This year we aim to offer a wide range of activities to cater to different interest groups. You could register to take part in the following games, visit any of the fringe activity booths or join us to cheer on our participants. 



Do register to participate in the following games;

1. Zoom!
This is an endurance relay race combined with the concept of a vertical marathon, which takes place around the parade square and the administrative block. Each team will be given 20 minutes to complete as many rounds as possible and the team that completes the most number of rounds win the race. 

2. 100 No NGs
Teams consisting of 8-12 players have to successfully complete a sequence of tasks within 100 seconds. Any failed attempt in between will require the team to restart the game from the 1st station.

3. Key to Success
Players will be paired up and each pair will have their wrists tied together with a paper sash. The goal is to search for the winning item without having the sash broken or torn by ‘chasers’.   It’s a great game to participate with your child. 

4. Sports Games
We will form a combined team of teachers and parents to compete against the students in the various games

 

      • Basketball: 4 on 4 versus the Sec 1 students
