“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 sportsman spirit and camaraderie to children.
LWSP celebrated its Annual Sports Day 2019 on 21st December. The chief guest for the mega event was Ms. Parvez – an expert powerlifter at the State and National Level who has won many accolades in the wrestling arena and is still going strong at 62 years.
The programme started with the Guard of Honour with the Chief Guest being escorted by the students. The event was followed by the hoisting of the flag by our Principal, Mrs. Aditi Banerji who declared the Annual Sports Meet open.
The event formally commenced with a March Past by all the four houses of the school. Watching the students march ahead in perfect synchronization was a treat to the eyes.
After this, the Sports Captain of the school, Master Nakshatra Mahor administered the oath to all the participants, thus instilling a feeling of camaraderie among all.
The theme for this year’s Annual Sports Meet was to showcase in a nutshell the sporting ethos of different states. The different Houses were assigned different states. They displayed the sports indigenous to these states in a coordinated and synchronized mass participation. This reinforced House pride and discipline in all the students. The place was a riot of colours – red, blue, green and yellow – and it resonated with cheers from the parents in the spectators’ stand, for all the four Houses.
Students of all the classes then competed class-wise in sprints, sack races, obstacle races, hurdle and relay races.
The winners were presented trophies, medals and certificates by the Principal who congratulated all the winners in their respective events.
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.
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.
