I want all the children present here today to feel encouraged regardless of the fact whether they have won or lost. I usually see parents tempting their children with goodies in exchange for good grades, the parents need to think beyond grades and aim at making their child a good human being and an all rounder. Lastly, I would like to thank principal Chakravarty for giving me an opportunity to be among these wonderful kids and see them perform so well. I wish the children best of luck for their future”.

The event formally ended with a vote of thanks by the Principal Chakravarty. She stressed on the importance of sports in a child’s life and said, “Sports is a vital part in development of a child. These children get the first lesson of fair play and sportsman spirit from sports events.  At last I would like to thank Dr. Richa for gracing us with her presence. I would also like to thank all the teachers for their hard work and the parents for being a massive support for their children.”
