Faridabad, November 22, 2014: Apeejay Athena 2014 was held at the School in November 2014 which began with a crisp March Past by all the students of the school, followed by a lively Garba Dance. The displays by the students included Aerobics, Yoga, Drill and Taekwondo in a colourful attire spread across the field.
Various sports competitions brought out the feeling of true sportsmanship among the students, but the fun-races by the junior classes were a sight to behold. Dressed up as animals, butterflies, flowers and insects, they raced against one another to complete their given tasks in groups. Grade I had a ‘Swachch Abhiyan’ race based on the segregation of degradable and non-degradable waste into labelled bins.
