The 15th December is the birthday of the founder Lala Dedarnath of our school. That is also our annual sports day. Students look to this day eagerly every year. This gives them a great pleasure. They are full of joy in this day.
Programme Chalked Out:
As usual an interesting programme was made for the day. We got printed copies of programme. The principal invited parents also. The senior P.T.I. was the in charge of whole show. The sports began exactly at 10 AM.
Items of the Programme:
First of all the athletes taking part in different events, staged a march past. The principal of the school took the salute. Then the sports began.
Different Kinds of Races:
The first item on the programme was the races- 100 meters race, the 400 meter race and 800 meter race and five kilometers race. The 5 kilometer race was a great fun. Hari pretty big fellow also took part in the race. It was a great fun to see him running. The boys laughed and clapped. We laughed and laughed when the boys completed two rounds and he covered only half a rounds and still he was running on. The hurdle race was also enjoyable. It was great fun to see the boys running with their hands tied backwards. It proved great fun when boys jumped to pluck an appeal tired higher up. When they tried to find biscuits under flour their faces were smeared with flour. The other races that we enjoyed were the potato race, spoons race, sack race, the blind fold race and the three legged race.
Slow Cycle and First Cycle Race:
Then began the slow cycling race, many students took part in it. Ravi, my friend won it outright. The three kilometer cycle race was worth seeing. About twenty cyclists took part in it. They passed with great speed. It was won my Uma Shankar.
Various Kinds of Jumps:
After the race came the jumps, the long jump, the high ump and triple jump. These items were also very interesting.
Shot-Put, Discuss Throw, the Javelin Throw, and Hammer Throw:
Then comes the items for strong and healthy boys- the shot-put, the discuss throw, the javelin throw and hammer throw. I took no part in these items as I have no interest in them.
Again we had the most interesting item. It was the Weight Lifting. Arun had won the Championship in this item last year. We wished to see his action. He went into arena. He had a muscular body. He lifted the weights with great ease. Everybody praised his strengths.
The Lat Item:
We were all eagerly waiting for the teachers’ race. The entire teacher took part in it. It was won my Drawing teacher.
The prize distribution followed the sports. Arun was considered the best athlete of the school. The drawing teacher received his prize- a little doll. Everybody cheered him. After this the students got a packet of sweets each. We returned home happily.
