Inventure Sports Fest 2015 entered its third and final day with a sense of determination from all participants to compete and excel in the events. It was very heartening to witness several students participating in multiple sports and events, despite the physical, mental and emotional challenges of the last three days of intense activity.
Inventure Academy hosted a total of 21 schools over the three day event. Final matches were held today in Basketball, and Football. All the Track and Field Athletic events were also held today.
Ms. Jaywanti Shyam, former Captain and subsequently Coach of the Indian women’s basketball team and the current coach of the Karnataka State team, declared the Athletic meet open, and witnessed all the Basketball finals. As a matter of interest, Ms. Jaywanti Shyam was also Nooraine Fazal’s (CEO and Managing Trustee of Inventure Academy), captain and coach when they used to play for Mount Carmel’s & Karnataka.
The Athletic meet opened with a ceremonial walk-by of all participating schools after some inspiring words of encouragement. Ms. Jaywanti eloquently expressed the importance of sports education, comparing the necessity for athletics as being a basic life skill, along with academic studies.
The well-attended awards ceremony brought a close to the day’s events, as victorious teams and the beaming faces of children mirrored the excitement and triumphs of the three day Fest. ISF 2015 has set the benchmark for excellence in sports and all participating schools look forward to ISF 2017!
