Why, oh why did it NEVER rain on Sports Day when I was at school??? I really hated it!! It was bad enough having to do all that competitive racing stuff during lessons without having all the parents there! Yes, I did go to my sons' sports days and always felt sorry for those kids who obviously hated it as much as I had. I think it should be optional. No kid should be forced into taking part if they dont want to. (that's probably a whole new discussion... which someone else will beat me to!)
