 Annual Athletics Meet 
We had a great experience today and enjoyed it a lot. The competition was house-wise, so we enthusiastically cheered on the participants. The sports staff, including Mr. Rahul Kalmotta, Mr. Abhay Raj Singh Sodha, Mr. Sajith Saji, and Mr. Kunal Parmar, gave their best to make this sports event memorable.
The best athlete events were as follows:
Middle section: Monika Meena of Dhyanchand House and Rudradev Singh of Raman House
9th-10th grade: Bhumika Rajpurohit and Digvijay Singh of Dhyanchand

The experience was absolutely marvelous. The sudden changes in participants added much to the excitement and my dedication towards making my house win is what I am joyful for. Even though I didn’t win but witnessing my house emerge victorious was truly a sight to see.

 National Youth Day 
To commemorate the 161st birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, a chart-making competition was organized on January 12, 2024, centered around the theme of National Youth Day, highlighting the life and teachings of Swami Vivekananda.
The competition witnessed an impressive display of creativity, as students utilized various artistic elements, colors, and symbols to convey powerful messages.

The competition not only showcased their artistic talents but also instilled in them a sense of responsibility and awareness of their role in shaping a brighter future.
 Annual Day - Experiences 
I want to share with you all the amazing celebrations we had at our Fabindia school's Annual Day. Words can hardly describe the magic of the day! The entire school was transformed into a colorful and vibrant stage. Some performances left everyone spellbound — from classical dances to mesmerizing music and exhilarating skits. It was an incredible showcase of talent and dedication. Each performance reflected the beauty of our unity in diversity. The energy and enthusiasm were infectious!
We also got to showcase our talents! Our group's dance performance went off well. I made a little mistake while dancing, but thankfully, no one noticed. The reason was that I joined the 12thie's group very late. Nevertheless, it was an unforgettable experience that we enjoyed a lot. The teachers and staff had put in so much effort to make this day special for us, and it truly paid off. It wasn't just an event; it was a celebration of our unity, our talents, and our school's spirit.

I danced with joy! The stage was like a magical place where everyone clapped and smiled. The music was so lively, and I moved to its beats, feeling super happy. The crowd's cheers gave me energy, and it was amazing! The whole thing is like a special memory now. I love how dancing made me feel, and I'll always remember that day when I twirled and had a blast! School events are awesome, and this one was my favorite!

 Annual Sports Day 
Being a spot boy at our school's annual day was thrilling! I helped set up the stage, ensuring everything was just right. It felt like a big responsibility, but the excitement was worth it. During the event, I made sure props were ready for each performance, and the spotlight hit the right spots. Despite the behind-the-scenes role, the applause and cheers for a well-executed show were my reward. It taught me teamwork and the importance of every role in creating a memorable celebration. Being a spot boy added a special touch to my school memories.

 Almanac Cover Design Competition 
The Almanac Cover Design Competition held on 11th January 2024, showcased the creativity and artistic flair of our students. The primary goal was to encourage innovation and originality in designing the cover for the upcoming school almanac.
Participants were given the freedom to choose their themes, allowing for a diverse range of creative expressions. The themes ranged from nature and technology to unity and diversity, reflecting the varied interests and perspectives of our talented students.
The Almanac Cover Design Competition not only highlighted the artistic talents within our school but also fostered a sense of pride and community spirit. The selected cover design will be featured in the school's annual almanac, leaving a lasting impression on students, parents, and staff alike. We look forward to more such creative initiatives that showcase the diverse talents of our students.
I believe pre-boards prepare us well for the main Board exams. They have shown me areas where I face challenges during exams, such as imperfect answer writing and deciding where to write a whole page, among other things. For me, pre-boards have been a very valuable experience, as they motivated me to study more for the Board exams.
