ANNUAL SPORTS MEET 2016-17
Sports competitions give us a platform to learn life lessons. We learn to learn from mistakes, finding out the leader in us, controlling emotions, tackling pressure, knowing responsibility and many such aspects etc. and we walked through these stages while we competed. Competing in sports we intend to give our best performance. Be it in showcasing our physical dexterity or in controlling our emotions; it makes us ‘Fit For Life’ and that’s the theme of our sports day.
Sports meet opened with Basketball and Football on 22nd August 2016. Draws made by house captains to decide the playing combinations. All the matches were conducted on knock – out basis. In the inaugural match Caring house overpowered principled house by 2-0 goals in the junior football category.
