CELEBRATION OF ‘NATIONAL SPORTS DAY’

Our School celebrated the National Sports Day on 29th August, 2018 to commemorate the Birth Anniversary of the Hockey Wizard, Dhyan Chand. The programme commenced with a brief speech on the life and achievements of the Legendary Hockey Player.

The amazing display of traditional sports such as Pallankuzhi, Pandiattam and Silambattam mesmerized the audience. A foot tapping dance performed by the students of Class VII ignited spirit of Sportsmanship in the minds of young Davites.

The energetic champions who represented our school in Gymnastics, Archery, Shooting and Chess shared their memorable and motivating experiences. The Talk Show by the students of Class X highlighted the current Scenario of Sports in India.
