I am currently sitting here listening to the sound of hundreds of school children cheering on their teams at the top of their lungs.
The Team chants have hardly changed from when i was at school. There is still so much excitement in their voices, so much encouragement from the teachers running the carnivals.
It is good that even with so much technology at their fingertips these days, there are still children happy and enthusiastic about taking part in sports carnivals.Wanting to do their best, to help their team, to get a new Personal Best.
Children today are in a way, no different to the children of generations past. They just want to have fun, spend time with their friends, push themselves, challenge their limits, do one better than they did last time.
Sport carnivals bring out the best in people… yes, the worst at times, but mostly, the best.
Sportsmanship. Teamwork. Encouragement.
