Sports teaches you character-it teaches you to play by the rules. It teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose-it teaches you about life
“ SportsFest” our annual sports day was held on January 27, 2018, on a clear sunny morning. Our Principal, Mrs. Shobhana Prabhakaran welcomed our parents and the chief guest Ms. Aisshwarya D.K.S., Trustee Secretary (Schools) to the sporting extravaganza.

Following their inspection, the three houses, Shraddha, Shramma, and Shreya formed a parade for the march past. The drumbeat, synchronized arms, and thudding feet inspired a sense of dignity and pride. Keeping in tradition, of lighting the Olympic Flame that represented endeavour for protection and struggle for victory, the school captain, Ms. Aditi S Dilip lit the cauldron to mark the start of the sports meet.
