Annual Athletic Meet
“The moment of victory is much too short to live for that and nothing else,” said Martina Navratilova, tennis player. Apart from commemorating victories, sports meets also aim at imparting lessons on the spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie to children.
LWSP celebrated its Annual Sports Day 2015, on 19th December, 2015. The chief guest for the mega event was Sanjay Katode – a martial art expert and a staunch believer in the fact that “Our days in the field are our days of glory”.
The break of dawn on 19th December promised to bathe everyone involved in the bright sunshine of glory and success. Parents were seen reaching the school in large numbers to encourage their own wards as well as other contestants who stood in the field with dreams in their eyes and fire in their bellies. The arrival of the chief guest raised the spirits of one and all and added much charm to the occasion.
The programme started with the guard of honour to the Chief Guest escorted by the students. The event was followed by the hoisting of the flag by our Principal, Mrs. Aditi Banerjee who declared the sports meet open. The event formally commenced with a march past by all the four prestigious houses of the school. Watching the students march ahead in
perfect synchronization was a treat to the eye. The reverberating sounds of retreating march past brought back nostalgic recollections. All the dignitaries took the salute and the Chief Guest released balloons. After this, the Sports Captain of the school, Ronit Shetty administered the oath to all the participants, thus instilling a feeling of camaraderie among all.
A peppy dance drill and an energizing exercise drill set the tone for the rest of the event. Yoga and formation of pyramids, lezims, karate & drill of dumb bells showcased the skills and exercises practiced by our young sports enthusiasts every day.
Students of classes 5 to 8 competed class-wise in events including sprints, sack races, obstacle races and three legged races. The grounds reverberated with feverish enthusiasm as the tempo set in with the parents, teachers and the students excitedly cheering them, voicing the spirit of oneness among all. It is said that finding good players is easy-getting them to play as a team is another story. Sports activities were complemented by a marching band the beats of which infused a sense of pride and belongingness towards the alma mater.
After the students’ events, the staff members also participated enthusiastically in the events scheduled for them. After the fun games and track events were over, the winners were declared. The proud winners were honored by the chief guest with medals and trophies. The moment brought to mind the thought “Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” by Dan Gable.
The event formally ended with the declaration of the meet closed by the Principal. Her encouraging speech enticed everyone and motivated many more students not to give up but persevere for more glory in future.
Annual Athletic Meet
Annual Sports Day is an important event in the life of every school. Sports themselves have a vital role in making a child sound physically as well as mentally.
Sports are the epitome of hard work and dedication. Sports are about those incredible moments where sheer human will and desire overcomes all odds. These are the moments we remember. We believe that to bag the ‘Number One’ spot, you have to gain a passion for running. To love the morning, to love the trail, to love the pace on the track is what we really aim at.
