Essay on Sports Day of My School for School Students

We had the annual sports day of our school the other day. I took active part in the various events. The sports day began with the races—the hundred meter race, the 400 meter race, the 300 metre race and one mile race. The last event was the most keenly contested one. Most of the competitors were exhausted4 in the first round and gave in. Only three remained in the field. The one who was last, made an effort in the last round and won. There was loud applause.

The hurdle race1 also provided a good deal of fun. My friend Satish got over all the hurdles with ease and was declared first. The other races which we enjoyed were the potato race, the three-legged race and the slow cycle race. I took part in the slow cycle race and won the first prize.

Now came the long and high jumps. I participated in both the events. Luck, however, did not favor me. The one who was the tallest of all won both the events. The other events of the day were the shot-put, the discus throw and the javelin throw. I did not take part in any one of them. One of my closest friends, however, won in all these events.

The last event of the sports was the tug-of-war. It proved very interesting. Both the teams were evenly matched It was largely the skill of my friends that made them win the game. When they failed to gain even an inch, the captain ordered a change. This had the desired effect. The team now began to pull. Soon the anchor of the other team was clean dragged out. My friends won.

At 4 o’clock there was a march past of all the athletes. The Principal of my school took the salute. It was a grand sight to see the athletes march with measured footsteps and the swinging of the arms. The last event of the day was the prize distribution The Director of Education was the guest of the evening. He gave away the prizes to the winners. It was a day of great excitement.

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.

Today a school without games and sports is unthinkable, as sports and games have become an integral element of present-day education. Formerly teaching consisted of merely imparting the basic skills of 3R’s (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic).

But true learning is much more than that. Today education is an all-round development of the child. In this respect games and sports play a significant role. It is in this backdrop that most schools organise their Annual Sports Day.

Last year, my school’s Annual Sports Day was held on 20th Oct. Generally a month of preparation precedes the day. A month prior to the event, all the children of the school were divided into four houses and respective sports groups such as senior, junior and sub-junior. Once the children are allotted their houses and groups, the various Outdoor Games begin. It is the most interesting and the most spirited part of the whole event.

Immediate preparation for the day commenced two days prior to the event. Different works such as, the preparation of the welcome gate, pandel, flag post, tracks, Olympic torch, decoration of the area, arrangement of the prizes, etc., were allotted to the different houses for completion. On 19th Oct, the final touches were given to the preparation and last rehearsals were held for the inaugural function and the cultural show.

The Sports Day commenced at 7.50

a. m. the following day with the welcoming of the chief guest. Our chief guest for the occasion was the newly appointed District Deputy Commissioner. He was solemnly welcomed at the gate by a group of Wangala dancers (Garo dancers) and by the school authorities. He was garlanded at the gate and given a bouquet of flowers as a token of official welcome. Thereafter, he was led to the specially erected pandal by the Wangala dancers.

As soon as he reached the Pandal, he hoisted the School’s Sports flag amidst the singing of the school anthem by the children, which was followed by an impressive march past, lighting of the Olympic flame and the oath-taking ceremony.

The chief guest then addressed the students wherein he outlined briefly the value of sports and games in student’s life and possibilities of career options in this field. The inaugural function came to a close with the display of a short drill. Sports events commenced soon after this.

The races, throws, jumps and the various items followed one by one. At 3.00 p. m the sports events in the field came to a close with the last item of musical chair for the staff. The concluding programme commenced immediately after this.

The chief event of the concluding function was the group dances performed by the different houses and the prize distribution by the chief guest. The last item of the eventful day was the de-hoisting of the sports flag by the chief guest, signalling the official closing of the school’s Annual Sports Day for the year.

Annual Sports Day is an eagerly awaited event in my school. It is a time of great fun and joy in the school as the days prior to the event as well as the day itself are marked by tournaments, matches and various competitions.

Apart from teaching us good values such as, sportsmanship, proper spirit of competition, team-spirit, co-operation, discipline in the field, etc. Annual Sports Day makes school life lively, interesting, enjoyable and memorable.
