We all know that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Not only does it avert him from being dull, sports also teaches Jack about teamwork and sportsmanship. Similarly, sports not only gives us a break from the mundane events of life but also teaches important values of life.

The memorable moment was when in a staff race one of our representatives Sajal Samanta secured 1st position to another senior staff member of JD Birla Institution who was to retire this year. Sajal Da generously exchanged places with him and gracefully gave away his trophy. Such examples of respect and consideration is what education is all about.
