Athletics competition at Netarhat

The athletics competition, held every year during the month of march, is one of the main events held at Netarhat school. This was held for three days and school remains closed during this period. During the build up of the competition, extensive preparations take place.
Lots of track and field events were held at winner of an event also contributed points to his team(set). This competition was a dual competition whereby first six positions obtained in an event also contributed to their set's cause.

Teachers don the role of referees and students, who were not participating (after all, every one cannot be an athlete and competition was tough to represent a set) served as volunteers in organising the events. The main playground (The Oval) has also got tents available where supporters and athletes used to stay during the competition.

The best day is the last day of the competition, where events like 100m, 200m, relays are held. This is the day when overall winner, best athlete are announced. Though it has been close to two decades, but memories of this event still brings smiles.

See you until next time. I am encouraged to write these posts on my school as my schoolmates are reading my posts. Hope they will enjoy this.
