Junior school had organised their sports day on 12th November 2016 at Loreto Convent Entally. The children were asked to assemble at the venue by 08:30 am. They came in their colourful costumes and the children were waiting eagerly for the chief guest to arrive. The event began with a prayer led by Principal Sr. Nirmala. The chief guest Mr. Chaubey declared the sports open. After this the children walked down in a parade carrying banners with a sports theme message. They also carried a potted plant symbolising new life. The four’s and the five’s smartly marched with the army band. Girls were chosen from each class as torch bearers who opened the sports day ceremony. The children took their oath and thereafter sang the theme song “Fun and Frolic”. After this activity relay to Nursery to class II took place followed by the drill display by the students of Class KG, Class I, Class II and Class III. The class I to V had batton relay along with inter Loreto batton relay. The class four’s and class five’s along with the activity relay also participated in gymnastics, yoga, karate and dumbbells. Arrangements were also made for teacher’s race, domestic staff race and parents race. The members of the students’ council also gave a lovely performance. Forty children had come from Thakurpukur. They were well trained and put up a spectacular show which won the hearts of the audience. The event ended with a note of thanks by the Principal Sr. Nirmala.
