The Junior School held their annual Inuit Games in the gymnasium this week. Organized by the Junior School teachers, the event was a fine display of fun and endurance inspired by the Inuit people of Canada’s north.
During the event, the Junior School was introduced to the idea that geography and cultural practices influence what people value and the games that they play. The north is a cold and difficult place to live, and the games that are played by the people who live there demonstrate their appreciation of strength, endurance, speed, and flexibility.
The events the students participated in included: The Back Push, Kneel Jump, Arm Wrestle, High Kick, Leg Wrestle, Bench Reach and the Stick Pull. As the pictures show, it was a wonderful afternoon full of challenge and excitement for all
