The Key Events of the Day

Cadet Level March Drill

March Drill by PYP students was so organized, uniformed, well-coordinated, steady and rhythmic that it reminded of the overland movements on foot of military troops and units under field orders. Sir Robbin Ghosh, who was an Air Force Combat Fighter Pilot found it captivating and attractive, headed with poise by The Parade Leader Siddhant Gupta. All performers outperformed and showcased the attributes of the IB learner profile.

A Girl with No Fingers climbed up the Mallakhamb

Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Mallakhamb word is made of ‘malla’ denoting a gymnast and ‘khamba’ denoting a pole. It is a traditional Indian sport, born in Maharashtra, with roots in Yoga and wrestling that is slowly gaining popularity across the globe. The technique to climb up this gleaming pole requires one to interlock the fingers around it, use forearms to grip the sides and hoist oneself up, like coconut harvesters. To everyone’s surprise, our talented champion, Ayat Gabrani from PYP5 who is deprived of fingers since birth has made it to the top of Malkhamb.

Life is all about having a desire and taking a risk. Ayat with her fellow mates has shown their risk-taking skills of IB learner profile. Mallakhamb training is provided at school, promoting it as an International Indian identity.


Lathi Kathi, an act of self-defence by little champions of PYP was appreciated by all. Every individual must have the ability to protect oneself physically from harm and it is a basic human right that should be accessible to everyone, including children.

Tyre Pull was a new challenging game for boys and girls.

Cloth Drill was a treat to eyes, that made exceptional formations and left everyone awed.

Grand Parents, Parents and Teachers’ Participation

The Grandparents were invited to be a part of the race called, ‘Ready to school’. Each and every individual present there enjoyed and encouraged them. Grandparents were super excited as they were invited by the school and given a chance to perform. Now it was the turn of teachers, who were a part of 100 metres flat race and recreational smiley ball race. All students cheered their teachers and hooted to the top of their voice.

President’s Speech

In our school, sports and games are not just about being fit or introducing the students to physical activities, it’s about increasing their self-esteem, their mental alertness, developing an Attitude. Every student should discover the hidden potential from within and believe that “I can”. That attitude, which allows each child to discover their hidden potential and know that they have the potentials and there are nothings that the children cannot do or achieve!
