30th Inter House Athletics Meet

The annual Inter House Athletics Meet was held on 18th February 2012. This year as our school turned 40, the celebrations were even bigger. A new theme song “As Sishya takes us higher” was composed by an ex student of Sishya – Akshaya Sitaraman and this was sung during the opening ceremony on the Sports day. The meet began with the Chief Guest Mr. S.P Sharma, Inspector General releasing the 40th year balloon, which floated above the field during the whole meet.

This was followed by the march past of the athletes led by Prannay Kejriwal,the Head Boy and Krithika Prasad, the Head Girl, and by Sung Woo Kim and Antara Chesetty, the Games Captains. They were followed by the four houses, led by their House Captains and the School Band. The senior contingents were followed by their junior counterparts, led in turn by their Games Captains and Junior House Captains. Once the four houses congregated at the centre of the field, the school flag was hoisted, the games torch was lit, and the Chief Guest declared the meet open. Following this, the House Captains took an oath of sportsmanship in a solemn ceremony.

The majority of the track and field events were held on the 9th, 10th and 11th of February. There was also a race for the Parents and a baton relay of 12 members each between the Sishya athletes and the Sishya Alumni.
