Now, the guest speaks usually on the importance of Sports and Sports Day, and declares the opening of the function.
The students’ guardians and friends were also present in quite a large number. First of all we had a volley-ball match between the 9th and 10th classes and a football match between the lower middle and the upper middle. The hockey match was followed by a tug of war match between the staff and the VIII class students. When the boys saw that the staff was showing signs of exhaustion, they strained every nerve at one and the same time and pulled with all their strength.
The staff pulled with might and main but the boys did not budge an inch. The unsuccessful attempts of the competitors made the spectators laugh heartily.
The smashes and volleys of surendra of X class, and placing, serving and ‘killing the ball’ at the net by Kapur of the IX class, elicited praise from one and all. The football match was won by the upper middle students. Next came a hockey match between the IX and X class students.
The volleyball match was very interesting and thrilling. The X class students felt humbled and crestfallen at this defeat at the hands of juniors.
