Sports Day 2022

A sports day with a difference, one like no other! NPS Rajajinagar conducted a virtual sports day for students of grades 6,7 and 9. It was an exciting event that had both recorded and live events.

The event began with an inspirational video, showing us that we need to rise to challenges and never give up. The school grounds were decorated with the flags of the 4 houses and against this backdrop Principal Ms Malathy Narayan hoisted the school flag in the presence of the PE teachers. An inspiring welcome speech by the Principal followed, wherein a message from the Board of Governors was conveyed and the involvement of all stake holders was appreciated. A Yoga display, highlighting the benefits of this ancient art added to the variety of the day.

All the students of these three grades took part in the heats, using the Timestamp app to record their trials. The videos were sifted through by the PE teachers to select 2 toppers in each event. The finalists then took part live on the Teams platform in the presence of parents, grandparents, teachers and other students. The different events – Target and Bin it in the Basket for Grade 6, Speed Bounce and Step it Up for Grade 7, Scale It and Crunch It for Grade 9 - took centre stage with live compering.

An energetic dance display by representatives of the 4 Houses was followed by the Roll of Honour that announced the winners in each event. The program concluded with a vote of thanks proposed by PE faculty Ms Helen Rajkumar.
