The Principal invited parents also. The Senior P.
T.I, was incharge of the whole show. The sports began exactly at 10 A.M. First of all, the athlete taking part in different events, staged a march past. The Principal of the school took the salute. Then the sports began. The first item was that of the races- of 100 metres race, the 400 metres race and 800 metres race and five kilometers race.
The five kilo metres race was a great fun. The hurdle race was also enjoyable. It was a great fun to see the boys running with their hands tied backward. It was a great fun when boys jumped to pluck an apple tied higher up. When they tried to find biscuit under flour, their faces were covered with flour. Then began the slow cycle race.. The three kilometers cycle race was worth seeing.
Many cyclists took part in it. It was won by Avinash. After the races came the jumps- the long jumps, the high jumps and the pole jumps. These items were also very interesting. Then came the items for strong and healthy boys-the shot-put, the discus throw, and the javelin throw. I did not take part in these items. Again we had the most interesting item.
It was the weight-lifting. Manoj had won the junior championship in this item last year. He went into the arena. He had a muscular body. He lifted the weight with great ease.
We were waiting for the teachers’ race as the last item. All the teachers took part in it. It was won by our P.T.I. The prize distribution followed the sports. Arun was considered the best athlete of the school.
The P.T.I, received his prize a little-doll. Everybody congratulated him. After this the students got a packet of sweets. We returned home happily.
