‘A healthy mind is a healthy body’ is an age old adage saying. We at the Andrean Child Centre firmly believe in this. Our 8th Annual Sports Day was held on Saturday, 27th Oct on the school quadrangle. Our Chief Guest was Rev. Fr. Lawrence D’souza, a sportsman, who was accompanied by our Principal Rev. Fr. Magi Murzello.
We began with our tiny tots ‘Walking In With Pride’ along with their respective class teachers and assistant teachers. This was followed by felicitating our Chief Guest, the Athlete’s Torch Run, Athlete’s Oath and the Declaration of the Sports Meet open with the release of colourful balloons signifying the message of ‘Aiming Higher’.
The Drill Displays by the Jr. K.G. and Sr. K.G. were a treat to the eye. The races that followed, be it the Flat Race or Novelty Races were a splendid showcase of teamwork that highlighted the skills our children acquire.
Finally came the most awaited part of the event, ‘The Prize Distribution’ which brought in excitement and smiles on the faces of the winners. A morning well begun, ended underlining a clear message that participation is more important than winning or losing.
