Dear children

 Almost all schools are having sports practices and preparing for sports meets. These meets are good for children, because they help them to build team spirit and also make them to learn to compete and accept victory and defeat with the same spirit.

The individual games will also help you to compete and strengthen your character as well.

Enjoy yourselves while engaging in sports practices as this is the time of the year when you don't have to concentrate on studies.
