I read in the Modern Public School, Dallas. Every year we hold Annual Sports in our school. This year too, we held the Annual Sports.
This year, the annual sports of our School was held on 3rd January 1994 and continued for three days. A temporary shed was raised close to the playground for the guest to sit and see the games. The P.K. Nanda, the secretary and the members of the school managing committee, the local officers and the local gentlemen came to see the performance. A large number of common people gathered behind the shed. Everyday the sports started at 7 A.M. and ended at 11 A.M. in those days competitions were held in many events. These events were long jump, high jump, Hundred-meter Race, Two Hundred-meter Race, Jilipe Race, Thread-and-Needle Race, Attention Test, Music chair, Football, Volleyball, Ringball, Hockey, Tennis, Badminton, Cricket, Shotput-throw, Discus-throw, javeline-throw, Tug-of was and so on. Students below sixteen years played in the senior group. The girl-competitors played in the another group. Each competitor was allowed to play not more than three events.
The compititions began. The onlookers raised great uproars at the exciting moments of a game. The goal judges and the announcer were ready. Results were announced on mike at the end of every event.
After the final events, a meeting was held on 6th January by the evening. Shri P. K. Nanda distributed the prizes to the winners. He spoke a lot on sports and games. Thus the sports-week ended.
This year the Annual Sports was very interesting. There were keen competition among the players. I took part in the two hundred-meter Race and became first. In long Jump and High Jump I became second. My class won the Tug-of-was and got the Running Cup.
This year this Annual Sports was held with a great pomp and grandeur. Being decorated with green leaves and coloured papers; the whole school looked very ceremonious. While enjoying the function. I realized the importance of games and sports.
