A healthy mind resides in a healthy body. This was depicted by the students of Maharaja Agarsen Aadarsh Public School, DU Block, Pitampura, on their Sports Day held to coincide with the birth anniversary of India's first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

With the view to engaging children in fun and frolic, cultural programmes were organised. Also, there was physical fitness with aerobics and dumbbell display. The students sang a song on patriotism and there were dance sequences and a dance drama titled "India through the Ages."

Various sports events like relay, kho-kho and mini marathon were conducted. The programmes concluded with the prize distribution. The students were felicitated with medals by the president of the school management, Ramphal Gupta. The Chairman Jai Narain Gupta also spoke. Speaking on the occasion Suruchi Sharma, a teacher said, "These programmes encourage students to know the importance of being physically and mentally fit and healthy".

The vote of thanks was given by the Principal, Shashi Sharma, who praised the efforts of students and teachers in making the event a grand success.
