Around 300 students from 11 wings of Kendriya Vidyalaya took part in the event. Gyan Prakash was the sports in-charge of the event.
Kendriya Vidyalaya Kankerbagh emerged the over-all champion in the three-day meet. The school wore a different look from Wednesday when the event got under way. The enthusiasm of the participants and their spirit were praiseworthy. The Sonepur branch emerged winner in rope-skipping. In the archery event, KV Danapur Wing were adjudged champions.
NSR Sharma, the senior assistant commissioner, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, Patna region, inaugurated the event on Wednesday and had motivated the students.
He had said: “Students should aim to bring a minimum of 90 medals this year at the national-level. This victory in KV’s golden jubilee year would be etched in everyone’s memory.” The school’s vice-principal, P. Tete, had delivered the welcome address on Wednesday.
On Thursday, M.L. Mishra, the assistant commissioner, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, Patna region, said: “Those who won, performed very well. Those who could not win should not get disheartened since they tried hard. They should not forget that responsibility and discipline bring success. If one follows these two aspects in life, then victory would be yours. These two virtues should be imbibed from student life and followed throughout life.”
