Two exhilarating events took center stage – a 3 km run and a thrilling game of kabaddi. The Run saw participants of all ages and abilities, running through the scenic campus. The kabaddi matches were a testament to teamwork and strategy, with each team displaying exceptional skills.

In the 3 km Run, the victors were:

Men’s Category: 1st – Mohak, 2nd – Darsh, 3rd – Prateek. Women’s Category: 1st – Nikita K, 2nd – Anamika, 3rd – Nikita G.

It not only celebrated the importance of sports but also highlighted the talents and dedication of our students.
