Every child was a winner at NurtureStars’s 3rd Annual Sport Day held on 29 August 2015 as some 170 of them from the Nursery and Kindergarten classes took part in eight different games while their parents and classmates cheered them on.

The parents too had the opportunity to join their children in one of the games where they worked together to compete against other parent-child teams. Some of the teachers joined in the fun when they pitched their endurance skill against the parents and children in the Hula Challenge. The fathers also had the opportunity to flex their muscles to the delight of their children in the Tug-of-War.
