My School Sports Day

Games are compulsory in every school as physical development along with mental development is essential. All students are not necessarily good in studies. Some are good in sports. Much to the joy of each students the Sports Day is one of the major events in the school.

Every year my school celebrates the Sports Day in the month of November. There is a big playground where the event takesplace. The preparations are made much in advance. A day earlier the tent is put up. Chairs are arranged in rows along the boundary wall of the ground so that the invited parents and non-participating students can sit and watch the happenings.

The most important person present in the school on this day is the chief guest who is invited to preside over the function. . The Chief Guest unfurled the flag. He gave a short encouraging speech and declared the sports meet open. The function began with the march past of all the participating students in their smart white dresses. Then the race began. Our sports teacher blew the whistle for the race to began and another teacher noted the time with the help of a stop watch. A photographern took the photos.

There were 100 metres, 200 metres and half a mile races. I took part in 200 metrs race and won a second place. The most intresting race of 50 metres was specially held for the tiny-tots of the school. Everyone enjoyed the scene and cheered the little ones. Funny events like potato race, lemon race, three legged race and sack were a lot of fun.

After this there were the high jump and long jump events. My friend beat all others in high jump. Another exciting event was the tug of war between the students and the teachers. Everyone eagerly watched this new event as students continued to pull hard to win.

At the end the Chief Guest disturbuted the prizes to the winners. My friend was declared the best athlete of the year. She won six prizes. The chief guest praised al the athletes and congratulated the winners. Then the principal gave a small speech to thank the Chief Guest.

Refreshments were disturbuted to all the students and the guests. Lastly the National Anthem was sung and the function came to close.

Sports Day was thus full of fun and excitment . I went home with the single silver cup in my hands. It was a wonderful day. I stil remembered my sports day.
