SPORTS DAY AT SCHOOL
Sports Day is always eagerly looked forward to , and this year we celebrated our Sports Day on January 28, 2010. There was a lot of excitement and anticipation in the air as students geared up for the March Past, the drill and the races. The Chief Guest for the event was Mr.Binay Dash , accompanied by his wife Mrs.Bani Dash. It was a proud moment as the torch was lit and the Chief Guest read out the oath, declaring the Sports Day open. The highlight of our Sports Day this year was the Handing Over Ceremony, where the current Captains of Class X handed over their duties to their counterparts in Class IX. It was a solemn ceremony and the entire school cheered the first outgoing batch of Class X as they marched smartly for the last time as students of Gitanjali Devashray.
The Chief Guest also gave away the Awards for Academic Excellence to all the star performers. The Best Teacher awards were also given away in appreciation of their dedication and hard work. Coming to the sports events,there were several interesting races for all the classes from Pre-Primary to Class IX , and the participants were cheered on by their friends as they ran, hopped or crossed hurdles to reach the finishing line. The ribbon drill , the yoga and karate display were all a treat for the eyes. Cheers filled the air as the scores of each house were announced after a set of races. The Best March Past Shield was bagged by Coral House, and the Overall Champions went to Emerald House.
