The Annual Sports Meet of Chennai Public School Global, Anna Nagar, took place on February 23, 2019 at 8 a.m. at the CPS Global Education campus, TMZ. Apart from members of the CPS management, the event was graced by renowned sportsmen- Mr Pradip Kumar Acharya and Mr Arun Sathianarayanan and proud parents. The event was hosted only weeks after the grand success of two theatre productions – ‘Wizard of Oz’ and ‘The Lion King’ that was put up by the students of the school at Egmore Museum Theatre.
A high burst of energy enveloped the field as students cheered for their respective houses and parents, for their wards. The event was a kickstart with the glorious march past by contingents of the four school houses – Alphard, Diadem, Canopus and Plasma. The contingents were led by the school captains and the Sports Vice captains. It was followed by the releasing of the schools’ annual sports magazine, Synergy. Power packed drill presentations – Fantabulous Fantasies by students of CAIE 1 and 2, Gliding Gabrielles by students of CAIE 3, 4 and 5 and Invincible Warriors by students of CAIE 6 to A level – were interspersed between track events and relays. The track events were conducted in 4 categories – super senior, senior, junior and sub-junior and the competition was a sight to see.
The displays were a spectacular sight, each carrying a message of its own. Fantabulous Fantasies depicted the message that each of us has the power to dream. Gliding Gabrielles spread the message that the course of life cannot be determined, but we can make the most of it, if we have courage and optimism. Finally, the Invincible Warriors, was a tribute to the warriors who laid their lives at the Pulwama attack and indicated that the war path is never chosen but once put on it, we must fight with courage and faith in ourselves.
Finally, the prize winners were awarded and the event was concluded with the National Anthem.
