Goosestepping to the Finish Line

Apologies for the lack of posts in the last week and a half. All of a sudden, the pace of life has really picked up.

The campus atmosphere recently has been quite exciting--there is definitely an extra skip to the students' steps. Lots and lots of chatter.

Indeed, it is that time of the year: the annual, school-wide track and field Olympics. Students compete for their classes in sprints, relays, long jumps, high jumps, javelin throws, and more. Between classes, during lunch, and even after school, they are prepping for this monumental event. They rally around their class flag, get into formations and practice marching down the track lanes, they how to goose step while chanting class cheers and shouting "Yi! Er! San! Si!" (One! Two! Three! Four!)

Anyway, tomorrow is the big day. The Opening Ceremony--yes, there is quite a grand opening ceremony planned--begins at 8am, and you will most definitely find me there.

Pictures galore to follow!
