Faridabad, Dec 23, 2017: The annual sports extravaganza ‘Apeejay Athena 2017’ was held at Apeejay Svran Global School on 23rd December 2017. Mr Sunil Kapoor and Mrs Mary Mashi, DSO Sports Complex, Faridabad were the special guests for the occasion
The programme began with a spectacular march-past and oath-taking by the athletes. The Special Guest declared the Meet open. Creative displays were put up by the students in the form of a fusion of yoga and dumbbells. A Lezim show was put up showcasing the use of lezim and exercising with it. They also exercised to music using hooplas and colorful ribbons. This was followed by aerobics, a popular exercising programme. The show-stopper was a drill show by the Pre-Primary students, who made various formations in the field.
The track-and-field events consisted of fun- races for the junior students, including Christmas decoration, Spirit of Unity, Collect the Letters, Find your Baby, Paper-and-ball, Sack-Race and Dress up the Scarecrow. Other races saw a powerful surge of energy from the students of senior classes.
The best part was the races organised for grandparents and parents. They participated enthusiastically and did their best in a competitive spirit. Some talented mothers even put up a dance-show prepared at a very short notice.
Medals were distributed in the end and the programme was concluded with a soulful rendition of an inspirational song.
The vote of thanks was delivered by the Head Girl, Asmi Panigrahi.
