The parents were requested to send their registration for the races organized for parents and we had 20 mothers who registered for Mother’s race and 08 fathers for Father’s race.
Mothers Race: In this race the participants were divided into teams on the spot and had to run and burst the balloon placed on the chair by sitting on it. As soon as the balloon bursts, the last team member had to run to the finishing line.
Fathers Race: The fathers had three legged race where again the participants were paired in teams on the spot.
Tug of war: The parents were divided into teams for the Tug of war. This task was enjoyed by each and every parent.
PRIZE DISTRIBUTION: The prize distribution was done by Dr Vece Paes and the students were delighted to get the medals for their respective races.
Dr Vece Paes addressed the gathering and shared his valued thoughts. He encouraged the parent to choose the right sports and hobby for their children and suggested them to spend time thoughtfully. He also said that he was delighted to see the student’s participation and involvement. He also shared with the parents the journey of how Leander Paes attained what he dreamt but mere hard work, dedication and commitment.
