India celebrates its National Sports Day on the birth anniversary of the legendary hockey player of India, Major Dhyan Chand on 29th August every year. Under his leadership, Indian hockey team was a force to reckon with. He led India to win 3 Olympic gold medals in 1928, 1932 and 1936.
While India celebrates its National Sports Day on 29th August, KPS also celebrates the day in the memory of major Dhyan Chand. In the Junior Wing of the school, students were informed about the importance of sports in life and the relevance of National Sports Day.
On this occasion, all the students from Nursery to Grade II participated in various sports activities with great enthusiasm and zeal. The little ones had fun while indulging in different activities. The kids learnt a lot about true sportsmanship and the value of playing games. They also took home a token of fitness as a fond reminder of the same. Students of Nursery participated in the ‘Banana Race’, LKG kids in ‘Burst the Balloon’ activity, UKG kids participated in ‘Farmer Race’, Grade I participated in ‘Hockey Race’ and Grade II kids did an activity named ‘Get Ready to Play.’ Students were seen playing with true team spirit and the celebration of National Sports Day echoed in the corridors and fields of the school.
