Sports day 2011
TIS’ Annual Sports Day
Talal Int’l School held its Annual Sports Day for 2011 at its sprawling compound. Both Boys Section and Girls Section held the events separately in a frolicsome environment. A spirit of festivity prevailed and the day marked with spectacular performance has been memorable.
The program of the day began with welcoming of the chief guest, Mr. Manzoor Feroke. The chief guest talked about the importance of sports and exercise in one’s life. It is necessary to keep one physically and mentally fit. Education does not mean just reading, and learning from books but doing things, keeping healthy, working with people and preparing for life. It is all education and Talal International School is proud of grooming children in the best way possible. These activities form a part of such development in a very safe and healthy environment, Mr. Manzoor added. He thanked the teachers and the students who added value to the event and made it a grand success.
At the Girls Section Mrs. Jasmin, the Vice Principal opened the event. She said Talal has added into its curriculum co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to make it rich and rewarding. A team of experienced faculty is dedicated to developing the students in these disciplines. The community is proud of their wards’ development at Talal’s hands – committed to nourishing and nurturing their children. She lauded the efforts of the teachers and the hard working students who made the program rich in every manner.
This was followed by a March Past by four houses. It was stunningly spectacular. Discipline, skill and colour synchronized with precision and order made the March Past delightfully different. The oath was taken by the Head Boy and the Head Girl in the Boys Section and Girls Section respectively. Then there came a variety of sports activities and drills – sprint race, shuttle race, obstacle race – to name a few. The talents shown on the field heralded the amazing skills of budding sportspersons – boys and girls. The creativity, practice and hard work produced thrilling sporting bonanza on the ground. The gymnastic drill by a group of boys was breathtaking. They put forth an inspiring drill – an adventurous feat from its physical display caught everyone’s attention. The pictures of various events here given tell tales of Talal’s talents and performances. Wonders are not naturally born but created at the altar and sanctity of Talal.
The events drew an exciting conclusion when the sun was slowly drifting away from the mid-sky. At the Boys Section Mr. Rafi Illikkal gave away prizes to the winners. He congratulated everyone who participated in the event and applauded those who supported and made it memorable. At the Girls Section the Vice Principal gave away prizes to winners, and consolation prizes to losers as well.
Talal International School has once again proved its unwavering commitment to developing a student community capable of meeting the formidable challenges of life.
