SCIPS Year 1 and 2 Cross country running at Botanical garden.
Even before Takara joined SCIPS, Arata often said to him, "You can get a medal at competitions when you win, and I'm sure you will get one, Oli." So Takara has taken his first ever opportunity very seriously, and has said, "I want to win, I want to get a medal."
He came to the second in Year 1 boys group. Well done. He's got my father's gene. However, Takara seemed to be a bit unhappy as he didn't get the gold.
Teachers insisted that the results are not important, completing the race is very important. Yet, they still didn't forget to praise the children who achieved good results by presenting them with medals. I've heard some schools in Japan don't even decide who comes first in order to avoid making the weak children feel bad.... I think it's a bit too much.
Anyway, the silver medal is so special!
