Sports Day @ School

Meridian School celebrated its Sports Day on Saturday. This year, the venue is shifted to Gachibowli stadium. Our family carpooled with Padmaja’s family and reached there on time. The stadium is very well maintained and presented a very nice turf for kids to present their talent. Some of the finals are held during the event itself.

Rightly so, the programs are centered around health, fitness, nature, wildlife and sports. The themes chosen are excellent and the costumes are top class. I am sure that a lot of practice hours went into the preparation. The results obviously demonstrated those efforts. The event started on time and very much ended on the spot. Very good time keeping by the organizers.

Surya won bronze medal in the kangaroo race conducted at the venue. He is very happy. Spurthi participated in the Grand Finale program by being part of the hockey team. Amulya and Varun participated in their respective events.
It is a nice family evening watching kids participate and perform. Here is the evening in pics:

Even though I shot about 200 pictures, I realized the limitations of my digital camera’s 4x optical zoom and its light sensitivity. That tells a lot about the scope and scale of the event. Most of the post-dusk photos are a washout, but no worries.
