Boys from Catholic schools who took part in inter-religious games recently said it was a most memorable experience.

“While my team didn’t win any prizes, I felt that meeting new people at the games and having fun along the way was a good enough prize for me and my group,” said Marc Timothy, 15, a Sec 3 student of St Patrick’s School.

“I would encourage others to join in next year as it is truly a worthwhile experience.”

Marc and 11 other boys from St Gabriel’s Secondary School were among the more than 200 mostly teenage participants of the Harmony Games held at Maha Bodhi School on Aug 4.

The yearly games have been organised by different religious organisations since 2008, and are aimed at supporting religious cohesion in Singapore.

The Buddhist, Baha’i and Zoroastrian communities organised the games this year, which saw participants playing with people of various religions. The games included Dodgeball, Nerf War, Archery Tag, Bubble Soccer and Captain’s Ball.
