The annual sports day of standard III was held on January 19, 2019, with great zeal and excitement. The events of the day unfolded with the soulful rendition of an Invocation song followed by a display of well synchronized school band performance playing in unison. Welcoming the guests and parents, our Principal, Mrs. Shobhana Prabhakaran, in her address to the gathering highlighted the importance of sports for physical and mental development of children. She added that sports is not an extra-curricular activity alone but becomes an integral part of oneself-developing skills required in practical life. One has to work with an aim. To achieve the goal, planning, effort, consistency, skill to do the best for which the three D’s-determination, dedication and discipline are required. She further added that as life comes with more failures than success, it is very important to develop the right spirit of sportsmanship, to respect the game and also respect the opponent, enjoy the game and whatever you do, you need to do your best.

Ms. Aisshwarya DKS, Trustee-Secretary –Schools thanked the parents for their support in all activities of the school. She requested the parents to play an important role in their child’s development and it is the school which provides a platform for such extra-curricular activities.
