“Remember who you are really today, know that you too have power to overcome anything you may be facing, it’s time to rise and shine and so forth I take it a privilege to greet a very good morning to one and all present here. Honourable Chief Guest Mrs. Kamini N., IPS Deputy Inspector General of Police, Vellore Region, and our secretary Rev. (Sr.) Alice K.T., the Principal Dr. (Sr.) Regina Mary R. The Vice Principals Sr. Sumathi M. of Shift – I and Dr. (Sr.) Amala Valarmathy A. Shift – II and our Special Invitees, Coaches of Various Teams, Heads of Department, Members of Faculty and My Dear Students, it is indeed my privilege to present the report of the Sports Activities on the 65th annual sports meet.
College is for most a very demanding period that brings with itself a lot of change. It can be a challenge to keep the energy level up all the time. Friends come and go and so do preferences. It’s hard to put things into perspective and stay motivated for the task, at hand as this is the time one faces the society. It is the time when one moulds one’s true self for the future. In midst of all this commotion, I strongly believe that sports help the students to calm down and streamline their goal, it teaches the students the essence of life by edifying morals like team work, being honest and most importantly it teaches you to face difficulties.
According to Corinthians Chapter 9: Verses 25 – 27 from The Bible “All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with the purpose in every step, I am not just shadow boxing, I discipline my body like an athlete is training to do what it should, otherwise I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified”; keeping this verse in mind our Auxilium College girls have participated in the following events and have emerged as winners, all by the grace of god.
