Sports Day at Sooch Village

Remember Track & Field Day back when you were in school?  Well, Sooch Village just held Sports Day for the children who attend the on-site school Sardarni Tej Kaur Memorial. Over 300 people attended, including the student participants, the other children of Sooch, and nearby neighbors. The opening ceremony kicked off at 9:30 in the morning with a welcome song and pledge by the students. This was followed by the flag hosting and official opening blessing by the District Education Officer  who was the Chief Guest.  There were sporting events for children in all age groups, including Biscuits Race (Nursery),  Saving the Ballon (Class II), Threading the Needle (Class III), Spoon and Marble Race (Class IV), Sack Race (Class V), Dressing the Little Kids (Class VI), and 50 and 100 meter races for the Junior and Senior boys and girls. Ending at 3:45 that afternoon, the day was a HUGE success and a GRAND time was had by all!
