For one moment, you may have felt it was a mini interprimary meet.
Such was the attendance and resulting excitement generated, at what turned out to be a major event.
It was the annual road races for the little athletes at the Naomi’s Preschool, which was held on Thursday 8th March.
The parents, grandparents and other family members, were out in their numbers and they did not come quietly!
It all started with the tiny tots and even they were able to savour the moment. One of them raced to the finish line, as if he was Usain Bolt’s first cousin and he set the pace for the others.
They covered varying distances, based on their ages but it all served to make for a very exciting morning.
When the dust settled, the results of the top three placers in each category, were as follows:
Girls 1 ½ years
