Talent wins games, but team-work and intelligence wins championships. Sports day is a platform to show case the talent and efforts put in by the little children to make it a successful event. Sports at Pre-Primary & Primary level is not about competition, it’s about having fun, being physically active, learning the basics of sports and building co-ordination and motor-skills and so to give the little champions an opportunity to display their self-confidence, patience, zeal and sportsmanship.
