Display of young talent in sports



Laurels all the way: Winners of the Ryan Maggi Minithon with A.F. Pinto, chairman of the Ryan Group of Schools.

BANGALORE: Prasiddhi School, Palace Ground, held its sports day for students of the pre-primary section recently.

The children not only participated enthusiastically in various events, but also spread messages on civic issues such as the need for saving fuel and keeping the environment clean.

Advisor of the school L.V. R. Iyengar, who was the chief guest, told parents to spend quality time with their children and bring them up with the right values.

Tough competition

Students from 34 schools of the city took part in the Ryan Maggi Minithon hosted by Ryan International School, Kundalahalli, at Kanteerava Stadium on Sunday. Over 4,000 children vied with one another in the gala event being organised in 12 other cities in the country.

The opening ceremony began with a reading of the Bible and prayer. It was followed by inaugural address by A.F. Pinto, chairman of the Ryan Group of Schools.

The school aimed at providing a platform for talented students. Last year, over a lakh students had participated in the event. A national level minithon for schoolchildren was also being planned, he added.

Inspector-General of Police (HQ Bangalore) Praveen Sood, who was the chief guest, flagged off the race. It was open for both boys and girls in three categories.

Mr. Sood told the students the importance of excelling in both academics as well as non-academic activities such as sports and athletics. Sports and games would teach children the importance of team work. It would also help them learn to accept both success and failure in equal measure, he said.

The closing ceremony included a drill display and pyramid formations by the students. Sacred Heart Higher Primary School, Silvepura, bagged the overall trophy for the second consecutive year.
