The sports day is the culmination of the athletic events which are conducted house-wise throughout the year in the four branches of the school.

A spectacular welcome dance which was an amalgamation of all the dance forms of India enthralled the audience and was successful in invoking the patriotic fervor in each and every one present.

The much awaited event commenced with the recitation of the verses from the Holy Quran followed by the National Anthems of both Kuwait and India. Rajesh Nair, Principal, ICSK Amman and Sports Coordinator welcomed the august gathering. This was followed by the march past of the four Houses - Shanti, Seva, Sahyog and Santhosh. The Chief Guest accepted the salute of the dazzling march past. As the Senate led with the school flag flying high, the contingents comprising of the students in the four houses marched in unison brilliantly. The stars of the day were the athletes of ICSK who won the CBSE Kuwait Clusters Athletic Championship for a record sixteenth time. There was a roar of applause as they marched past the dais. The school band came in for a special round of applause as the bandleader threw the mace into the air and saluted the Chief Guest. After the school flag was hoisted, the best athletes of the ICSK took turns to carry the torch to light the sports flame. All students were sworn in with an oath which was conducted by the sports captain.

The Chief Guest in his inaugural address exhorted the students to acknowledge and appreciate their competitors. He then declared the annual sports meet open amidst thunderous applause by releasing balloons in the air. A band display by the famous ICSK Band followed that captivated all the hearts present at the event. The power of human will to compete and the drive to excel beyond the body's normal capabilities was most beautifully demonstrated by the young athletes of ICSK who displayed their insatiable quest for triumph and prowess in sports.

Dr. V. Binumon, Principal and Senior Administrator in his felicitation address congratulated the CBSE Kuwait Cluster winners and urged the students to give more importance to participating in an event than winning it. He also laid emphasis that the students must give equal importance to academics and sports to develop an all-round personality.

Other than the usual track and field events, the function also witnessed a pompous pageantry of drill display by all the four branches – an amalgamation of exactitude, politeness, aerobics and dexterity enwrapped in decorum. Spectators watched with bated breath as the students flooded the stadium in rainbow colors. Their rhythmic and synchronized movements appeared like a celestial feat and indubitably it was a feast for eyes. The stadium reverberated and rumbled with relentless rounds of applause from the astonished spectators. The Chief Guest, the Members of the Board of Trustees and the Principals gave away trophies to the CBSE Kuwait Cluster champions and other sports event winners of all the branch schools.

The event culminated as the school flag was lowered and the meet was declared closed by Mr. Shaikh Abdul Rahman, Hon. Chairman, which brought an end to a memorable day. The 43rd Sports day of ICSK Senior was brought to a close with the words of gratitude by Ganghadhar Shirsath, Principal, ICSK Khaitan, to all present, for the efforts rendered in making this event a grand success.  The amazing finesse and arduousness of the young athletes of The Indian Community School, Kuwait, will remain timeless in the minds of all those who attended the meet.
