After a fortnight of being over busy with the preparations for the Sports Day, at last the day arrived.

The ground was meticulously done up, white chalk powder lines were installed for different events.

Victory stands were beautifully done up to make the victors feel proud of being there after the events.

All the children were instructed to go to their allotted places on the lawn, centre wise. The tutors were

present to take care of the children and to guide them accordingly.

The ground all set for the upcoming event

Mr.Jegajothi Manohar, Panchayat President, M.Pudhupatty and nine volunteers from the European

Voluntary Service were the Chief Guests. Mr.Saravanan, Board member introduced the guests to all, and

requested one of them to say a few words and declare the Sports open.

The guest speech began with a usual note on the importance of Sports and Sports Day, and

Mr.Joryck one of the Chief Guest declared the Sports Day open and then the events start.

All the students taking part in the sports lined up for the march past. They marched past the Chief Guest

who stood to their attention.  One by one the events took place in a very well disciplined manner and

the winners listed were made to stand on the Victory Stand and they were cheered by one and all.
