Sport day is an important activity of a school. Sometimes it is organised by many schools jointly. Sport day is usually organised in the month of November in India. Students participate in many sporting events like race, throw ball, volleyball, dodge ball, running, relays, shot put, javelin throw, etc. with the aim of proving their abilities and with winning sentiments for prizes and awards.
Events are grouped as per grade of the students. That means all the students of one grade of participating schools are labelled with serial number while participating in race event. Students select the sport events before 15 or 20 days and do practice in the schools at last period. Sport teachers help these students to make them known to general idea and rules of their selected sport event. Sometimes the competition is set among the blue, red, green and yellow houses. The captain of the house does his best to become winner.
Before seven days the students are tasted with demo competition. Last year sport day was held on June 6, 2013. One big cake was made by our school. The cake was kept on a big platform. House prefects (captains) were leading each house. A march was organised. Our chief guest was from Canada. His name is Mr. Danniel Thomas. Early in the morning around 8 am our chairman flew two white pigeon in the sky with the chief guest. After that, light torch was handed over by each house captain to each other by running. Subsequently sports events were completed one by one. At the end the organising members delivered speech about sport and its benefit. Final message was delivered by the chief guest. At last real moment ultimately reached for which the participant were eager to watch. It is prize distribution. School students were clapping and praising the winners. I also won 3rd position in 100 m race. I was very proud, though I don't like sport too much , but I felt happy for the winning moment.Keywords: national sports day, sport day in school, international day of sports for development,
