Cheeseman Reigns Supreme!


The day started with lots of smiles and enthusiasm among all the students, parents, teachers, and simply spectators. The Penang Free School Annual Sports Meet ‘2001 was indeed a great event of the year, and the first sports meet of the new millennium.
It began on a perfect sunny day with the early birds arrived as early as noon!

The event started off at about 2:00PM with the march past where we saw the six houses marching their way to fame and glory, competing against each other to win the best house march award. The crowd at the school pavillion and at the house tents were really fantastic, as everyone cheered for each passing event, creating a full-charged, well-oiled energetic atmosphere at the school field.

As time passes by, we witness new champions and athletes being born among our present and Old Frees, while some just have to work harder. At about 3.30PM, His Excellency The Governor of Penang, made his entrance to the school, and the well-known PFS Band, led by Drum Major Ooi Jin Khuan staged a great and sensational formation and songs, all just to spice up the day and entertain everyone.

At the end of the day, the students and teachers from Cheeseman (Hooray!!) was simply overjoyed and cheered as they gave themselves a great applause when they were officially announced the champions of the year, followed by Wu Lien Teh, which managed to achieve 2nd placing. At about 6:30PM, almost everyone, like yours truly returned to their homes, while some attended the “jamuan” prepared for the guests. ‘Till the next upcoming event, have fun!
