We did a mini Olympics competition the week before Halloween. I had a obstacle course ready, and then we did some running competitions. Other events included egg and spoon race, a free archery display/contest and a fast paced football test of skill, plus a short hula hoop lesson.
Contestants who were taking part in the sporting events were evaluated on their skill, ability etc. Next time I surely hope to include some more events like badminton and athletics as a part of the entire event schedule. Medals and prizes were only awarded to the kids at the very end of the last day. It was a whole five day event spread out over a week. We had tea then the young pupils went off home in order to rest up for tomorrow’s activities.

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Golden Carers website creator. We had a blast in our Mini-Olympic games for the past 2 weeks. Both our Residents and Staff enjoyed thouroughly the program we prepared. Residents and their immediate families were also involved. Most of the ideas presented in your website were excellent and have given us the opportunity to facilitate the activities which had provided friendly competitions among our Resident and Staff alike. We received lots of praises from our Resident, co-workers and the Management.
