“Today, we celebrate the team spirit as well as a healthy competitive spirit with our students taking part in various sporting activities and it is just a day of joy for everybody. At Beehive we focus on every part of the child growing up well. It is important for the child to be healthy, to be sporty, to work in teams, and to want to win,” she stated.
