The Chief Guest Rev. Fr Walter D’Mello addressed the gathering and told the students that it was their day and he was happy to be a part of the Annual Sports Day. He stressed on a healthy mind in a healthy body. This makes a healthy person smiling, focussed, optimistic and dynamic. Such a person will not have handicaps and can move mountains. Participation is important which brings confidence and fulfilment. He urged the students to learn values and have devotion, dedication and desire to learn more and more; and blessed that God be their strength.
