Harrow Sports Day

Our Harrow community came together for what was a fantastic celebration of sport, teamwork and House spirit. In what was a glorious, sunny day, students displayed the values which are synonymous with our Harrovian traditions. It was an excellent display of sporting prowess, whilst also demonstrating courage, honour, humility and fellowship. 

6月初天气晴好,在万众期待中我们终于迎来了疫情后的第一场盛大体育赛事——哈罗运动会!积蓄力量已久的学生们终于有机会在赛场上挥洒汗水,为自己的学院荣誉而战!每一位学生,都用行动展示了哈罗的核心价值观:勇气、荣誉、谦和与互助。

Why have a Sports Day? 运动会的意义何在?

Playing sports can also help children to develop their social skills and help to set them up for positive relationship building for life. Through an event like a Sports Day children get the chance to show leadership, teamwork and communication skills, as they interact with new people and face new challenges.

运动在强身健体以外,还能帮助学生们发展社交技能,建立积极关系。在良性竞争中,学生们可以借机发展领导力、团队协作能力与沟通能力。

Instilling healthy competition in children from a young age is vital and formative because it teaches children the important lesson of participation and equally pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, not to mention the benefits of exercise too.

健康的竞争意识也能教会孩子们走出舒适区,即使失败,也能意识到参与的重要性。

Winning and Losing 关于输与赢

Sports Day teaches children that they can’t always win at everything they take part in which is tough but crucial. Sports Day offers the important reminder that while yes, there will always be winners and you might not be one of them, it’s the participation that counts overall. It’s the growth made when you stand up and take part. It’s the insight that no one wins all of the time. These are formative lessons which will last a lifetime. Imagine quitting every time you fail? No one would get anywhere in life. It’s consistently working towards goals and picking yourself up after failing and learning from mistakes or simply acknowledging that success is both relative, and takes time, that matters more. 

人不可能在所有事情上取胜。在运动会中,学生们也将意识到,人不可能是永远的赢家,过程比结果更重要。在失败过后,你将不断成长,鼓足勇气继续前行。在输赢之间学习到的功课,将使你受用终生。成功需要时间,当你朝着标杆直跑,从失败中吸取经验,不断自我革新,这才是更重要的。
