Our annual SMD Sports Day is always a much anticipated and exciting event for all the students, faculty and staff at SMD. This year’s event was held on January 31 and organized by Tenzin Loden with assistance from SMD senior students and teachers.
The event opened with a marching parade by the school houses and the school band. It also showcased the school captain Dorje Sherpa’s recitation of the annual SMD Sports Day oath, a beautifully choreographed aerobics routine, and intense track and field games, supported by fierce voting from each of the houses.
The best and cutest part of the event was the games for the little kids from the junior section—seeing the small kids run for lollipops on the field was just adorable!
Throughout the day, medals and certificates were distributed to the winners. Much to their surprise, the red house won the best ‘march-past’.
Medals for ‘best athlete’ from senior boys and girls were given to Ashok Tamang and Kunsang Choden, respectively, whereas the medals for ‘best athlete’ from junior boys and girls were awarded to Deepak Rajbar and Tsering Yangchen. Ashok Tamang shared, “I was very surprised when I heard my name being called for the ‘the best athlete’. It was an unexpected and a happy moment. I felt really excited when my friends cheered for me. I am really proud of myself.”
