“You were born to be a player. You were meant to be here. This moment is yours”

– Herb Brooks

Sports develop a sense of friendliness and enhance team spirit in children. Sports boost character and self confidence. It plays a pivotal role in the make-up of young, impressionable youth as it inculcates values like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, sacrifice and accountability. It helps, improve both physical and mental strength. Our body remains fit and healthy.


Our school, I.I.P.S hosted Sports day for Kindergarten and Primary Grades (I-III) on Tuesday, 27 November 2018 to highlight the importance of sports in student’s life.

“All works and no play make Jack a dull boy”. This proverb highlights the importance of fun filled activities in our life.

The morning belongs to the children, the children who had put all their heart and soul for the past several days to make this day possible. Students came dressed in white track pants and T-shirts that matched their respective House colours. No regular classes were held for students on that day.

“Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold”. It is our pleasure and privilege to be a part of this event. It was a splendid morning. The programme started with messages from the Principal and the Supervisor like:

  1. Practice like, you have never won; perform like you have never lost.
  2. Sports teach you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose. It teaches you about life. “Life is also just like a game sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but never stop playing. Sports and games inculcate leadership, unity and competitive spirit among the students.

These messages helped in motivating the students. Students participated in various competing sports activities on this day.

The Games for the IIPS Sports Day were:

Grade- I:  Cup Cake Race.

Grade- II:  Banana Race.

Grade- III: Running through Hoops.


The participating students displayed their ability through these sports. The results were announced immediately. The winners of these games got a sense of pride. Children did their best and competed in the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play. The students learnt to accept both victories and defeats with grace. Sports day brought new energy in the hearts and minds of the children.

We concluded with the famous saying,” Winners win, winners lose but winners play”.
