The sports teach discipline to the students. They also develop the spirit of sportsmanship and suddenly derive a lot of pleasure by playing games. It also inculcates the quality of team spirit in them. The students learn the qualities of leadership and working unitedly.In our college we have a very big playground where the students play games regularly. We also celebrate our Annual Sports Day every year in the month of February. Preparations for the celebration of the Sports Day are made much in advance. There is a big gathering on that day in our college. The students who excel in games are given prizes, by the Chief Guest. The parents of the students are also invited to attend the Sports.
