JUNIOR SPORTS FEST SCULPTING THE MIND THROUGH CREATIVE MOVEMENT SPORTIVA 2017

At G D Goenka Public School, many activities and events are organized throughout the year to motivate the students and enhance their creativity. The emphasis is on the individual’s intellectual, physical and emotional growth. In furtherance of this vision, the school successfully organized a Sports Fest, Sportiva 2017, on the 24th of February 2017.

The students of classes Nursery to V, under the guidance of the Principal, Mr.SanjayYadav, the Vice Principal, Mrs.Swadesh Kumar, the talented sports and activity teachers as well as the teachers of the pre-primary and primary classes, participated in the programme with great joy and fervour.In the words of John F Kennedy, ‘Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body; it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.’ At G D Goenka, we firmly believe that apart from education, one needs good health and for that, one needs to play sports. Hence, the spectacular extravaganza, Sportiva 2017, was organized to celebrate the sports prowess of our students.

The presence of the Vice Chairperson, Mrs.RenuGoenka, several illustrious and distinguished guests and parents added glamour to the event. The Chief Guest, Ambassador Dr. Deepak Vohra motivated the students to be fit and healthy and inspired them to take pride in being an Indian. In his speech,the Principal, Mr.SanjayYadav, delineated the emphasis laid by the school on both academics and the co-curricular as well as co-scholastic domains. He also exhorted the students keep alive the flame of their commitment to the school motto – higher, stronger, brighter!

The Sports meet began with anincredible fusion of freestyle, jazz and hip-hop in The Rhythm of Life, which was followed by a fantastic display of Kalaripayattu, a martial art from Kerala. It is considered to be one of the oldest fighting systems in existence. Kalaripayattu includes strikes, kicks, grappling, preset forms, weaponry and healing methods.  Then came a superb demonstration of the complex skills required to master the sports of football, basketball and cricket.

One of the highlights of the day were the track events by the little champs of the Nursery classes. The tiny tots of nursery jumped and raced together, exhibiting their enthusiasm and sportsmanship through a series of obstacle and hurdle races involving the use of an assortment of equipment like steppers, tunnels and ladders.

Exercises and drills help to keep us agile, fit and healthy. They are an essential component of a school day and inculcate in the students the habit of leading a disciplined life. Thus, the students of class 3 participated in an umbrella symphony to remind us of refreshing rainy days.

The little ones of KG added some fun and frolic to the day with their bright and colourful parachutes. These tiny tots worked diligently with zest and zeal to present a perfectly coordinated display of their abilities interspersed with a plethora of formations.

To demonstrate the various skills associated with ITF Taekwon-do, like punches, kicks and blocks for self-defense, the mighty warriors of G D Goenka displayed their expertise in this martial art.

The students of class 1 presented a celebration of Chinese culture with a fan dance, which also included a few fiery dragons, in the Oriental Fantasy.

The effortless somersaults, graceful cartwheels and death-defying pyramids of the little ones in Fusion Fitness were an amazing sight to behold. There was also a prize distribution ceremony for the winners of the races which were a part of the Sports meet.

The grand finale was inspired by the colours of the Olympic rings and by the dedication and spirit of the Olympic Games in the Soaring Razzmatazz where the students used parachutes in the colours of the Olympic Rings with remarkable dexterity to create fantastic formations. The magnificent show ended with the vote of thanks and a rousing rendition of the National Anthem.

Sportiva 2017 was highly appreciated by the guests and parents alike who lauded the efforts of the school heads, the teachers and the students. The parents were completely spell bound and praised the show saying, “The well coordinated and confident moves of the children mirrored the efforts of the teachers.” Another appreciative parent said, “Thank you for helping the little ones create beautiful memories which they will cherish forever.” Many remarks such as “fantastic show”, “great effort”, “spectacular sportiva”  expressed the elation and joy of the parents of G D Goenka, Vasant Kunj.
