Director Principal Dr. Kashmir Singh told students that this day is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of the world famous Indian hockey player Major Dhyan Chand. He also said that the students should take inspiration from such a famous personality and choose their national game as a sport. In his address, he also encouraged students to participate in various sports and make their country proud just like Major Dhyan Chand did when he won three Olympic Gold medals for India.
While talking about Major Dhyan Chand’s achievements, the Principal also apprised students about his patriotism which was evident when he turned down the offer made by Hitler for a post in his army.
Encouraging the players, the head of the Physical Education department, Dr. Parminder Kaur Randhawa, said that sports play an important role in the overall development of the students and thus, every student should indulge in some sport.
