Here are pictures of one event using bamboo poles. Students pass a bamboo pole from one group to another. They first run and carry it about 30 meters, they go around a cone, and then run back to the group. Before passing it onto the next group, they must run the pole under the feet of the whole group. The group jumps up as they pass it under them. Then they pass it back over their heads to the front of the whole team. The next group takes the pole, runs with it, and does the same thing before passing it to the next group.
Bamboo poles are also used for tug of war. Several poles are pulled by groups of about five students. Other events include relays and 50 and 100 meter races. Second graders race in groups pushing a big ball. First graders do a bean bag toss. Each grade 1-4 performs dances. Grades 5 and 6 do a gymnastic routine. Whole teams do the final event.
