“A healthy nation is always a wealthy nation”
Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana understands the integral role a School can play in the proper development of the students so that they mature into an asset for the country and the world at large. Holistic development of students is possible only when they are physically fit. On the other hand, present day lifestyle is not in keeping with proper physical development for the children. This is why MRIS LDH ensures enough opportunity for the students to engage in sports. The School offers a gamut of sports activities to choose from; there is a sports period every day and specific sports coaches with not just a single P.E. teacher conducting the sports period. MRIS LDH organized competitions for Carom, Chess and Billiards for the students of Nursery to Grade I, Grades II to V and Grades VI-VII respectively on 28th October, 2015.
The students participated in various competitions under the supervision of trained and specialized sports coaches. The students were full of enthusiasm in competing with each other which in turn helped them to develop sportsmanship and leadership qualities. Their joy indeed knew no bounds. There was hundred per cent participation of the students.Mrs. Shilpi Gill,Vice-Principal Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana appreciated the sports department for training the students in such a short span of six months. She encouraged the students to focus on their physical-self reiterating that body is the only tool that enables us to perform various roles and live fuller life; the best of comforts and luxury is meaningless to a sick body. Hence, they should adopt a lifestyle that prioritises health. She wished the team good luck for future endeavours.
