Chung Shan Kindergarten, Ipoh, located along Jalan Treacher Selatan, was a hive of activity one recent Sunday morning, as it was the kindergarten’s annual sports day.
The Chairman of the Board of Governors, Mr. Oon Peng Lam, and guest of honour, Perak MCA secretary Dato’ Tan Chin Meng, made lengthy speeches in Mandarin, before the start of the games. At times like these, I regret not learning the language when I had the chance!
After a simple ribbon-cutting ceremony and souvenir presentation to the guest of honour, the games began. Despite their young age, ranging from 3 to 6 years old, the more than 400 pupils participated in the games with a true spirit of sportsmanship.
The games were very simple, actually, but at the same time, fun and also an opportunity to learn, like the game of matching nouns to objects. I wonder who thought out all these games. Kudos to them!
