School is a temple of learning wherein, its
endeavours and initiatives not only lead as examples, but imbibe the value deep
in its roots. With pollution level reaching extremely intolerable, the
school in association with the Times of
India took an initiative to organise a mini marathon called Xavathon.
The event was classified in four categories
comprising participants of different age
groups: Group A (25-35 years), Group B (36 years and above), Group C (14-16
years), Group D (11-13 years)
The star studded event was witnessed by Asian Games
Winners - Divya Kakran (Freestyle Wrestler) and Lakshay Sheoran (Shooter), and
Shri Vinay Pratap Singh, Deputy Commissioner Gurugram, presided the event as Chief Guest.
The students and the parents keenly participated in
the event with over 700 runners.
The school students also organised a cultural programme
including a rock band and a dance performance with a message to celebrate a
safe, cracker free and pollution free Diwali.
The DC, the chief guest of the event also emphasised
on the fact that pollution increases with each passing year and the celebration
of Diwali may take place for one day but the pollution caused during the
celebration spoils the environment for a longer period of time.
He also urged to promote the planting of more trees
to heal the planet and have a better and prosperous planet for our future
generations to come. The event was inspiring as the Asian Games winners also
had an interactive session with the students around.
The wonderful day ended with the distribution of
certificates and medals to the winners and the finishers
of the marathon.
