‘Winners never quit and quitters never win.’
Ridge Valley School believes that each individual is a winner and to celebrate the strengths of our little ones, the ‘Skill Day’ was held on Saturday 10th March in the ground of Ridge Valley School. The event was about putting up a show to display gross motor skills and building co-ordination, having fun, being physically active, learning the basics of sports and also to give the little angels an opportunity to display their self-confidence, patience, zeal and sportsman ship.
The fantastic turnout of parents and the pleasant weather were the perfect boost for the students. The event began with welcoming the gathering and the Chief Guest, Mr. Ajit Sirohi who was presented a planter by the tiny tots. The Chairman addressed the enthusiastic gathering followed by kicking the football into the goal post, marking the beginning of the event.
Different Skill Stations were set for Grades Nursery, Kindergarten, 1 and 2 for the students to display their gross motor skills. The parents were seated in grade wise allocated areas. The students of Nursery and Kindergarten showcased their gross motor skills by running zig zag through the cones, jumping over the hurdles and balancing on the balancing beam. The students of grade 1 exhibited their skills by performing obstacle race with hula hoops and the Grade 2 students displayed their honed skills by dribbling football. The air was filled with cheering and tons of encouragement for the young athletes.
After the simultaneous display of gross motor skills, all the students headed for their respective races. While Nursery conveyed the message of keeping our surroundings clean, Kindergarten emphasized on the importance of eating healthy food. Grade 1 students performed under vault race and Grade 2 children displayed true spirit of sportsmanship and team work performing shuttle relay race. It was a delight to see the excitement with which children challenged themselves to attempt variety of races.
