According to Ana Pagalaman, one of Jade Home’s SPED teachers and head of the event, this year’s intramurals focused on promoting and developing an active lifestyle to all participants, despite them having special needs.
“We want to display the children’s skills in various physical activities. This also serves as an opportunity for them to learn a variety of games and the value of unity, cooperation and sportsmanship through healthy competition.”, she added.
On the first and second day, the children and staff were divided into four teams, namely Speed Warriors, Seahawks, Wild Unicorns, and Mighty Moths.
The teams competed in a total of 15 games and an obstacle course. Among the games played by the children were basketball, volleyball, badminton, shoot the ball, face to face, giant slipper, and water relay. The staff also joined in the fun by competing against each other in basketball, volleyball, and badminton games.
In the end, the Speed Warriors emerged as the over-all champion, followed by Wild Unicorns (1st Runner Up), Seahawks (2nd Runner Up), and Mighty Moths (3rd Runner Up).
