DEHRADUN, 24 Oct: St Patrick’s Academy celebrated its 3rd Annual Sports Day for the Junior Classes, today, on its sprawling grounds. It was a day filled with fun, frolic and fervor. The event began with the Chief Guest, Renu Lohani, SP (Vigilance), being welcomed by the School Principal, Bro Joseph, and the Coordinators. Bro Jeyaseelan, Principal of St Joseph’s Academy, was the Guest of Honour. Bro Sebastian, the Vice Provincial of the Patrician Brothers, India, was also present along with Sisters and Fathers from the nearby communities. A budding Class 1 child of the school gave a zealous welcome address to all. The children challenged themselves to attempt a variety of races. The parents clapped constantly and vigorously, seeing their children performing feats. All the children participated in the event – no child was left behind in the celebrations. Chief Guest Lohani congratulated the School Principal, the teachers and the children for putting up such a stellar show. To the parents, her message was to spend more time with their children instead of letting them play on the mobile screens. The ‘Final Countdown’ was when all the children dotted the grounds in their bright and beautiful costumes- there were no winners and losers, just beautiful, vibrant and happy children.
