Third inter house competition – Dog and the bone

Friday, 27th September was the day of the third inter-house sports competition of 2013-14.

This year, we have deliberately planned simple yet enjoyable games for the inter-house competitions. Full participation, enjoying the play, learning sportsman spirit and instilling the house-spirit for healthy competition are the foci. We have also erected a BIG house score board on the campus. Our sources tell us that the children have loved it! 🙂

So on 27th, it was the turn of dog and the bone. Our students from 4th standard and above thoroughly enjoyed playing this game which they otherwise play in their societies. The game was previously known to almost all of them, but playing it in their school was something they had never thought of!

There were average 15 children-a-side. They were given numbers from 1 to 15, not in the same order as they stood. Their coaches called out numbers randomly, the ever-so-alert students ran towards the centre and then everyone was seen cheering for their team-mate. No one could know the next number that would be called out, so all were constantly on their toes. The otherwise calm and composed students were also seen excited and anxious. They had to be nimble, they had to be shrewd, and they had to be supple to bring the dumbbell home. The successful were heartily cheered by the house.

There was full participation from 7th, 8th and 9th standards. For 4th, 5th and 6th, chance was first given to the children who had missed both the previous competitions. Everyone enjoyed the game without bothering much about victory or loss. Our coaches enjoyed equally with our children. The scores were as below.
