“Success isn’t given.  It’s earned – on the track, on the field, in the gym – with blood, sweat, and the occasional tear“.

This quote is apt for any sport.  In benevolent memories of the founder secretary Mr. K G Ravindra, “K. G. Ravindra Memorial Volleyball Tournament” and as a friendly league of the cluster of “Sahyadri Sahodaya Schools Complex”, the Interschool Volleyball and Kho-Kho Tournaments were organized in the Institution on 18th November 2017 in the school campus.

“Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of others to achieve their greatest success”.                                                               – Stephen Covey

The above quote was evident in almost all the matches that the institution witnessed the entire day since morning.  After a daylong play of enthusiastic teams, now it was the time to conclude the day with a perfect valedictory by suitably rewarding the winners and encouraging the runners and losers of the day.

The formal valedictory programme started at 4 pm.  The delegates on the stage were the Chief Guest of the programme Mr. Venkatesh V, Physical Education Director, Indira Gandhi Government First Grade Women’s College, Sagar, the President of the programme Mr. Guru Prasad, the Managing Director of Mallika Auto Centre, Sagar, the Vice-president of the institution Mr. Aravind Gurjar, and the honourable Principal of the Institution Mrs. Shobha Ravindra.

The programme commenced with a melodious devotional song by Ms. Manasa Nadig, a Class VIII student of the institution.  This was followed by a hearty welcome speech by the high school Kannada faculty of the institution Mr. Sunil Halethota.  Later Mr. Vasudev Gond, the physical education teacher of the institution reported about the day’s volleyball and kho kho tournaments that went on since morning under Sahyadri Sahodaya Schools Complex Kho-Kho Tournament and K G Ravindra Memorial Volleyball Tournament.  Later, Mr. Venkatesh V, the Chief Guest of the programme initiated his inspiring speech.  Mr. Venkatesh inspired the participants how sports promote learning to adjust, to work in team and also to develop life skills.  He reiterated the youth to come out of distractions and keep themselves active and fit throughout life by adopting sports in life.  He appreciated the institution for its dedication in its persistent efforts towards the overall development of the students and concluded his speech by wishing good luck to the students.

Later the president of the programme Mr. Guruprasad rendered his presidential remarks.  He spoke about the origin of the games and called upon the students to apply the rules of the sports into life.  He quoted a few verses of DVG and elaborately narrated its inner meaning.  He encouraged the teams which couldn’t make any place in that day’s tournament by his motivating words.  He explained how words in negation like ‘No’, ‘End’ and ‘Fail’ can be taken positively in life as ‘Next Opportunity’, ‘Effort Never Dies’ and ‘First Attempt In Learning’.  It was indeed a remarkable approach towards failure.  Thus he concluded his speech by appreciating the efforts of the institution in bringing up life skills blended with quality education in a remote hamlet like Amatekoppa.   To sum up, the entire day was totally inspiring for those who won and lost.  Team spirit was evident in each and every event and the unit that facilitated the events.  With a great spirit of sportsmanship, enthusiasm and celebration, the progamme was called to an end.
