Annual Shri Khel and Shri Explorer event was hosted by The Shriram Millennium School, Gurugram.
The day was guided by the spirit of healthy competition and sportsmanship wherein the purpose was not to compete with one another, but to be the best version of oneself.
The proceedings were flagged off with a perfectly coordinated march past headed by the House Captains, followed by the welcome address and oath taking ceremony. Anuradha Gupta, Principal, The Shriram Millennium School, Gurugram said, “We learn from Deepa Malik that grit and determination is required to persevere in life and achieve success. We as a school believe in inculcating this spirit in our children right from the start. Believing in oneself and determination is the key to success.”
The Special guest for the day, Indian athlete, Deepa Mallik PhD (h.c), who herself is a true example of sheer grit and determination, motivated the children with her inspirational story and words of encouragement. She said, “Celebrating the fact that your body can be crippled but not your mind, we should encourage everyone, to nurture athletic skills in our students, irrespective of any challenges. The oath taken by students here teaches them how to deal with victory as well as defeat and keep moving ahead."
Uttara Singh, Director of The Shriram Millennium Schools stated, “At TSMS, we ensure that importance is given not just to academic excellence but also physical activity and sports. Hence, we host Shri Khel annually to celebrate the spirit of sportsmanship and promote the importance of being outdoors. Shri Khel had many challenging activities in which each student participated."
The children beautifully showcased the essence of teamwork and group dynamics in the Flower drill, Bamboo drill and Karate drill. The elementary students weren't far behind as they pushed their stamina, tenacity and patience levels in the obstacle courses dotted with hurdles and commando hoops.
With team spirit leading the way, the children supported and appreciated the efforts of their team members as the Chief guest distributed the medals and certificates.
A separate arena was arranged for the Shri Explorer segment where the children and parents could try their hand at adventure sports like Burma Bridge, Roller Zone, Tarzan Swing, Obstacles and climbing wall.
The hard work and dedication put in by the children over the past couple of months shone through as each group did their bit and brought together a spectacular display of discipline and poise.
Such events at the school's premises help children build positive associations with the outdoor games as they build a varied range of skills in the run up and preparation for and on the Sports Day itself.
