After a gap of two years, the College Campus and Middle School once again came together to form three very powerful houses. As the Annual Sports Day events start a month earlier with the High Jump, Long Jump and Shot Putt practices and selection at the College Campus, the Middle School students and staff got busy with the PE Display rehearsals, decoration and art work,
Eminent Crowned Champions for the Tenth Time
and their well coordinated management, which are alway appreciated by the College Sports Staff and Administration.
After three days of practices and selection the students started pouring into the National Coaching Centre Stadium, it was a relatively cold morning, and the students looked snug and chic in their house colours, faces painted and house tattoos in place, one could sense the competition had already started, with each house trying to outshine the other, in a sea of colours. The stadium was beautifully decorated as usual, by our very talented and awesome art teacher Samina Tariq, who made sure the stadium was clad in Orange, Purple and Green, the colour of our three houses, Cardinal, Eminent and Paramount all meaning Excellence.
After a recitation and translation from the Holy Quran, the athletes marched in smartly to sing the National Anthem, the Olympic Oath was taken by last years Champion athletes Furqan Farooqui of the Cardinal House, Arooj Alvi of Eminent House, Sania Maqbool and Wassay Khan of Paramount House on behalf of all the athletes present at sports day. Our Principal Mrs.Karen Ahmed opened the games and dedicated the Annual Sports Meet to our student Mustafa Ghumro and our sports teacher Xavier Anthony who so tragically left us for their heavenly abode last year, and remembered all our sports stars, who have served us in all fields of the game. Our College Campus Vice Principal Mr. Nadeem Islam giving his acknowledgment speech thanking each and everyone, for their contribution in making this event possible, and the parents for their honoured presence.
Two very special people who worked and coordinated in the background, and gave us all the support possible were Middle School Vice Principal Mrs. Aine Arfin and Administrative Coordinator Mrs. Sayeda Rezvi. The entire audience was entertained with a fabulous and fantastic PE Display performance, by the students of the Middle School choreographed by Jade Nazareth, to the Party Rock Anthem, Danza Kuduro and The Time medley, this display was enjoyed by each and everyone.
The Track events started off with the 75 Meter Flat Race for Boys of Class VI. There were a total of 43 events for the students from Class VI to A Level Second Year. The points table twisted and turned as each event took place, tension building everywhere, the outcome was kept secret, but the students made their wild guesses, and never gave up hope right up to the last event. One could hear the messages and results on the P.A. system, by two amazing announcers Sumera Malik and Tehmina Shahab, who kept the event alive with their witty and good humoured comments, among the din of cheering and encouragement from the participants. Keeping pace with the event points table were two very efficient scorers, Farhat Shakeel and Patrick D’Souza, who were very patient with us all day, and did a marvelous job. The flat races witnessed a lot of new records broken and created all day, and the ever so popular shuttle relays were a treat to watch. The Tug-of-War event, introduced for the first time on the demand of the students, ended Sports Day, after the Parents and Siblings got their share of the excitement with their races.
By the end, when it was so difficult, to even hear yourself think, with chanting and cheering from all the houses, Our Principal read out the final points,
Paramount House with 260 points stood third, in second place with 288 points was Cardinal House, BANG! Eminent House with 342 point went wild, there were scenes of hugging, tears of joy and defeat, and high fives everywhere,
