Most are aware of the Interactive Sports Day held on 7th April as part of the City of Sydney’s Youth Week, but I bet you didn’t know that it was organised and run by Kent Institute Australia students. Kent students Margarete Almas and Judith Perez volunteered many hours of their time to create the event as part of a grant which was available to the public and was attended by many International students and other local youth.
The event held at KGV Recreation Centre on a Friday night hosted Basketball and Soccer competitions, table tennis, badminton, a mechanical bull, free BBQ dinner, life size games such as Jenga and Chess and loads of opportunity to unleash some artistic flair with the post up #be here, be heard theme messages, group painting and group colouring in. These ideas came from the dynamic duo, Margarete and Judith who did a commendable job creating such a successful event enjoyed by all who attended. The duo said the greatest part of the night was receiving such great feedback from those who attended, thanking them for their ideas and watching people make new friends throughout the night.
Even the photographer on the night was a Kent student, Liston Munetsi who volunteered his time to capture all those special moments.
A big congratulations is extended from Kent staff to these amazing students who have given back to the Sydney community in a fun and interactive way.
