A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. - Colin Powell
There is an adage—If hard work is our weapon ,success will become our slave.The resounding success of our 1st annual day ‘Antaragni’ amply proved that.
With the session slowly drawing to a close, our focus shifted to Academics keeping in mind the forthcoming annual examination. However alongside preparations for the Annual Sports Day and Annual Exhibition went on in full swing.
ANNUAL SPORTS DAY
“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”- Vince Lombardi
Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination with a hard-to find alloy of enthusiasm and guts.
Sports at school level is not about competition. It is about having fun, being physically active, learning about the basics of sports, building confidence and motor skills. To give the students an opportunity to display their self-confidence, patience, zeal and sportsmanship the much awaited Annual Sports Day of LPS Global School was held on Friday, 2nd February.
The pleasant weather was the perfect backdrop for the students to excel on their very first Sports Day. It was a week-long schedule i.e. from 29th January to 1st February, during which preliminary races were conducted.. It was a delight to see the excitement with which children challenged themselves to attempt a variety of races such as Fix the shape, Three Legged Race, Obstacle Race etc.
The young achievers were awarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals by the Vice-Chairman Mr. S.C Arora, Chief Co-ordinating Officer Mrs.Pammi Arora and the Principal Ms Mahuya Mandal.

The circular building was beautifully and tastefully decorated. A spectacular Rangoli design was the centerpiece of attraction as was the boisterous dance presentation which welcomed the parents and guests on the day of the exhibition.
The Pre-Primary classes on the ground floor presented the work done by the students throughout the year. Parents were encouraged to visit and see the work done by all the students. They thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition and were completely mesmerized by the presentations, whether it was by the Art Dept or the innovative projects put up by the Science and Social Science Dept.
