Biabou Methodist Inaugural Kids Athletics Competition

Tuesday December 8, residents of Biabou and parents of the Biabou Methodist School had the privilege of witnessing for the first time a Kids Athletics Competition; a concept recommended internationally by the IAAF for children 7 to 16 years old.  The Biabou Methodist School decided this year to replace their normal inter-house sports with a Kids Athletics House Competition.  This competition was held on the school grounds.  Three Houses ( Red, Yellow and Blue) competed in 6 different events: hurdles, formula 1, triple jump, speed ladder, forward throw and endurance.  It was for the first time every student of the school participated in a sports competition.
