Takshila XXXXth Bihar State Aquatic Championship
Sports and games are the best ways in which we can channelize the hidden potential of the students in a positive manner. It not only helps us in breaking the monotony of our regular schedule and routine day but also fill us with the qualities that are very essential for self development. The proverb “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy” is very true because if the students do not play and do exercise they will become lazy and lethargic.
