Sports Program Expanded
The start of this semester saw the launching of a new compulsory physical fitness program for Grades 7 through 9. Each student gets to choose an activity for the quarter. Through the year, students have a wide range of options, including soccer, cross-country, aerobics, kho-kho, athletics, table tennis, badminton, cricket, hockey, volleyball, swimming and tennis.
The number of students involved in inter-school sports has also increased greatly this year due to
a change in the qualification system amongst the six participating Mussoorie schools. The
indexing system of qualification based on height and weight has been discarded in favor of a
system of divisions according to classes. This enables far more students to take part, as formerly
many of our students were too brawny to be allowed to compete against their own age group.
