Principal, Ms Tania Joshi, inaugurated the event. She encouraged the participants and expressed her delight at the enthusiasm exhibited. She said that ability was what one is capable of doing whereas motivation always determines what one does. According to her it is a person’s attitude that determines how well a job is done. She reminded the students to always maintain a positive attitude, both on and off the field. She added that it did not matter whether one tasted failure or success in any game because participation in sport always pays rich dividends in terms of fitness, well being and happiness.
