SPORTS MEET – 2022-23
“Sports do not build character. They reveal it”
Sports Day brings new energy in the hearts and minds of the learners. This day is marked with great joy and discovering the inner talent of a child in the field of sports. It is said that Sport strips away personality, letting the white bone of character shine through thus giving players an opportunity to know and test themselves. Since Gajera Trust is committed to all round personality development, Sports and Games are always given an equal priority and a good amount of time is being spent by the learners.
