The displays made way for the highly awaited athletic events where competitiveness among the students was evident. However, easing the tension of competition were the fun races conducted for the parents and staff.

The Sapphire House was adjudged Best Marching Contingent and at the end of the day, the students departed with a clear smile on their faces as ‘Sparkling Sapphire Stole Scintillating Sports Show’ by emerging as Overall Champions. In second place was the Topaz House followed by the Emerald House in third place.
