Sports meet 2018 (college)
The Annual Inter-House Sports Meet of Holy Family Convent Bambalapitiya was held on the 8th of February. The theme for the year was animated movie characters. The event commenced at 12 noon with the arrival of the Chief Guest, Ms. Jayanthi Kuru-Utumpala, the first Sri Lankan to summit Mount Everest. The parents were already in excitement to watch their children engage in their activities. As the Olympic torch was lit, the Sports Meet of 2018 officially commenced.
The environment was filled with students rushing to their different house tents, amidst hearty cheering for their houses. With the end of the more serious and important events, the fancy items were next in line. The captains’ and teachers’ relays gave the audience a good laugh. Furthermore, the glamourous performance by the Hewisi band lightened the mood of the audience. Finally, the well trained Western band led the squads of the five houses, ushering in the final and most critical moment of the Sports Meet- the announcements of the achievements of the sportswomen. The final announcements for the day were the overall places achieved by the five houses- Sebastian house in fifth place and Ambrose in fourth. Third was the blazing sun, Suzanne, while red heads of Rose De Lima came in second. First place was ultimately taken by green grass Carmel in a stunning victory.
As the Sports-Meet of 2018 came to a close, it was evident that the long hours of hard work and sheer effort put in by the captains and prefects had been worth it.
