The 15th December is the foundation day of our school. That is also our annual sports day. Students look to this day eagerly every year. This day gives them at great pleasure. They are full of joy on this day.
As usual an interesting programme was made for the day. We got printed copies of the programme. The Principal invited parents also. The P.T.L was the incharge of whole show. The sports begin exactly at 10: A.M.
First of all, the athletes taking part in different events staged a march-past. The Principal of the school took the salute. Then the sports began.
The first item on the programme was the races — 100 metres race, the 400 metres race and the 800 metres race and five kilo-metres race. The’ 5 kilo metres race was a great fun. Shahid, a pretty fellow, also took part in the race. It was great fun to see him running. The boys laughed and clapped. We laughed and laughed when other boys completed two rounds and he covered only half the round. And still he was running on. The hurdle race was also enjoyable. It was great fan to see the boys running with their hands tied backwards. It provided great fun when the boys jumped to pluck an apple tied higher’ up. When they tried to find out biscuits under flour, their faces were smeared with flour. The other races that we enjoyed were the potato race, spoon race, sack race, the blindfold race and the three- legged race.
Then began the slow cycling race. Many students took part n it. Amjad my friend won it outright. The three kilo- met’ cycle race was worth seeing. About twenty cyclists took part in it. They passed us at a great speed. It was won by Anwar.
After the race came the jumps — the tong jump, the high jump and the triple jump. These items were also very interesting.
Then came the items for strong and healthily boys— the shot put, the discus throw, the javeline throw and the hammer throw. I took no part in these items as I have no interest in them.
Again, we had the most interesting item. It was the weight lifting. Arnin had won the Junior Championship in this item last year. We wished to see his action. He went into the arena. He had a muscular body. He lifted the weights with great east. Everybody praised his strength.
We were all eagerly waiting for the teacher’s race. All the teachers took part in it. It was won by our Drawing Teacher, Mr. Kamal Ahmad.
The prize distribution followed the sports. Amin was considered the best athlete of the school. The Drawing Teacher’ received his prize— a little doll. Everybody cheered him. After this the students got a packet of sweets each. We returned home happily.
