SPORTS DAY CELEBRATION
Venue: Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya Matric.Hr.Sec.School
A healthy body results in a healthy mind. A good diet alone will not bring out good physical fitness. The body needs exercise in the form of sports. A sport is also a type of education. It helps the children to mingle with others, work on the principles of give and take, in a real sense they also get to know about a lot of games. More over active participation in sports help the children by giving them an opportunity to work as a team player, feel a sense of accomplishment, set goals, face challenges and cultivate the mind set to take on defeats.
In our school, sports day was celebrated in a grand manner. On that happiest occasion we initiated our porgramme by an invocation song sung by VII standard students. The welcome address was presented by Vaishnavi of VIII standard.
