Sports in India

With support for this project the school has been able to hold several sports day functions for kids at the school, for the orphanage boys and girls that we are working with, as well as hosting other schools in the local area. First was the sports day for the school, where the kids competed against each other for ultimate glory (and bragging rights). Funds helped to  to clean the soccer field and purchase drinks for the kids. The second was the A team playoffs with three other local schools, the A Team is Auxilium schools representative soccer team. Students and teachers came together for a fantastic, competitive and fun day. Thirdly was a games day held for the orphanage boys and girls, they were able to spend the day getting out of the classroom for some fun games together with all of the volunteers.

All of these things would not be possible without the donations received to be able to continue to give the school a greater focus on sports, and it is building more and more. With the donations also funding an excellent sports coach we are continuing to build a solid sports program. These sports days have also attributed to the schools identity both to the students and those in the community.  We are building a good sense of loyalty and team work into the kids through doing these programs. Hopefully teaching them lessons you just can’t find in a book. The A Team day was something never done before and was an excellent way to network and build relations with our fellow schools, the kids had an amazing time and is a program that we will definitely do again. The school and students performed amazingly well on and off the field, and showed how a little hard work and want for it to happen can provide a great experience for everyone. In case you were wondering our Auxilium school finished a gutsy second! We’ll get em next time.
