The rain held off and the sun came out for a track meet at Ormstown Elementary (OES) on June 2, and Valley elementary schools turned out in force to compete in the day’s events. Teams from Hemmingford Elementary, Howick Elementary, Heritage Elementary, Franklin Elementary, and Gault Elementary arrived by bus to participate in a full day of sports that was held on the Ormstown soccer field and hosted by OES. Over 300 children from grades 4, 5, and 6 competed, all dressed in their school colours. Students took part in the 80-meter sprint, 150-meter sprint, 600-meter run, relay races, long jump, high jump, softball throw, mini javelin throw, and shotput. The athletes were happy to compete without masks. “It felt like the return to normal,” said OES physical education teacher Chad Campbell. “It was nice to see all the colours.”
