This year’s sport day landed in the middle of a heatwave. Temperatures topped out at 33 °C in Winterthur. We had originally planned to be running, jumping and climbing all around Reitplatz park, but the heat forced us to change our plans. Our older students headed off to the Töss Swim Centre for the day with their teachers to swim and play games in the shade. Our younger learners stayed at the schoolhouse and played a variety of water games under the large rain shower on the playground before having a picnic in the assembly hall. The afternoon was spent playing games indoors away from the blazing sun.
