“Talents win games, But teamwork and intelligence win championships.”
The National Sports Day in India is celebrated on 29 August, on the birth anniversary of hockey legend Major Dhyan Chand, who won gold medals in Olympics for India in the years 1928, 1932 and 1936 and scored over 400 goals in his career, from 1926 to 1948.
The Day is celebrated at Maxfort School, Rohini to spread awareness on the importance of sports and physical activities in every individual’s life. The virtual sports day helped to encourage children to remain active.
This COVID 19 pandemic could not deter the zest of young Maxfortians as they participated with great zeal and showed the true sportsman spirit by taking part in activities allotted to them.
The sports help the children deal with the stresses and strains of the pandemic days when all are forced to stay indoors. These events sensitized the children about sports and games which play a crucial role in the integrated development of children and help in making them responsible citizens. The students of classes VI to VIII participated in Zumba, Tabata and Aerobics with high- spiritedness and effervescence.
Overall, the celebrations saw wholehearted participation from the students and the facilitators involved in it.
