A Sports Meet
Just as studies are important for the development of the mind, sports are important for the development of the body. It is a universal truth that a healthy mind can only reside in a healthy body. This is the reason why sports form an important part of the school curriculum. Our school celebrates its annual sports meet every year on the 26th of January. This occasion coincides with the celebrations of our Republic Day. We had decorated our playground with flags and banners. Neat lanes were drawn with chalk powder for the athletic events on the ground. On one side of the ground, three tents were erected for the guests and parents of the students. The State Sports Minister was the chief guest on this day. He was ed at the gate by the Principal and teachers of the school. He was given a guard of honor by the senior students. The sports began with the speech of the chief guest. The first event was the 100-meter race. It was followed by a 4 x 100-meter relay race. The sports meet ended with a hockey match between the School A and School B teams. The chief guest then gave away the prizes to the winners. The Principal thanked the chief guest And with it an exciting sports meet came to an end.
