Nature and Marathon Day 2017 ~Nagoya, Kakuozan International Preschool ~
On a beautiful November morning the Hummingbirds, Parrots and Eaglets class students and teachers along with our wonderful volunteer parents gathered the park near Higashiyama Park and got ready for our Nature and Marathon Day. This is a really fun event for all the students where they have a chance to explore the great outdoors, play in the grass, collect leaves, go on a fun nature walk with their teachers and of course, run!
All students ran for approximately 1km from start to finish and each race was timed. Some students fell down but they got back up and kept on running. Well done! It was a very exciting race for everyone. We enjoyed cheering each other on and encouraging our friends to run together.
After the marathon we all sat down to enjoy a delicious picnic lunch and then spent the afternoon playing tag, collecting grass and leaves, hunting for bugs and playing tag. We are very excited about going back again soon.
