The last day of Sreenidhi’s Olympic Week began with a blast that even our neighbors in Aziz Nagar probably heard: the house cheers! With Friday marking the end of a long week of exciting activities and spectacular performances by the houses, each and every student was sure to put their best foot forward when cheering for their houses. The event was a show stopper to say the least: it was magnificent seeing students within houses unite to give themselves a slight edge during their race towards victory.
The cheers themselves all had their creative touch to it: students were cartwheeling around the cricket field while some even held leaves to signify their house colours! Yet, one aspect was present in all the houses: loud and mesmerising cheers. Although many of us may have left the field with dry throats, it was easily one of the most memorable moments of the Olympic Week.
Once the cheers were all wrapped up, the houses split into either the basketball or football courts to partake in the next set of activities. Each house gathered their best players for the two sports and made them participate in challenging yet intriguing events.
For the houses in the football court, students were expected to score shots through hula hoops positioned on the goalposts. This was without a doubt one of the most challenging activities in the entire week. Out of around forty students that participated, only a few were able to score!
The next activity was relatively simpler: shooting baskets in the basketball court! Houses arranged themselves on either side of the court and made their best basketballers flaunt their skills by shooting some baskets and getting much-needed house points. Although the stakes weren’t as high as the football event, it was fun nonetheless!
With the activities all completed, Sreenidhi’s Olympic Week finally came to an end. All four days of fun and engaging activities had raised house spirit and brought together students - while adding in a little bit of friendly competition. It was an event that was a joy to participate in - and one that we hope will stick around for the years to come!
