THE first school term at St George’s School got off to a great start at the BioInnovation Corridor (Agro Technology Park) Kampong Tungku on January 21.
Students from Year 4 up to Year 11 participated in the race and took up the challenge to run the almost 4km route at the park. Many had arrived before the stipulated time of 7am.
Teacher Jason Chung started off the event with a zumba session.
The Chairman of the Board of Governors of St George’s School, Anthony Liew, together with the Principal, Janidi Jingan flagged off the race, participated by more than 300 students.
The race was run according to the age groups of below 15 and above 15 for both girls and boys.
St George’s School took the first step in moving out of its regular route at Tasek Lama for its cross country race and held the race at the BioInnovation Corridor for the first time.
The principal, in his note to parents, stated that Brunei Darussalam has many interesting places that students do not know about.
As part of the school’s initiative to promote new places, the school has chosen the BioInnovation Corridor as the venue for its annual cross country race this year.
The programme ran as smooth as ever, with the below and above 15 boys group races preceding the girls group.
Participants ran to score a point for their respective sports houses.
The event ended with students and teachers visiting the greenhouse at the BioInnovation Corridor.
