Maintaining a perfect balance between studies and sports, students are excelling in both the fields.
Harsh Sharma, who is enjoying a glorious run in baseball at a young age by winning numerous gold medals at national and state-level competitions, scored 90% marks in non-medical in CBSE Class 12 board results.
Speaking about his success mantra, Harsh said, “I never lose my focus, which is the ultimate key for success. I work hard to maintain a balance between studies and sports, and prefer to stay away from gadgets as much as possible. Sports taught me discipline which in turn helped me to focus in my studies”.
Pranjay Sharma, another student of the school, has played cricket at U-16 national and state level. He bagged 87% marks in Commerce. Pranjay is also the captain of the school cricket team. Talking about his success Mantra, the student of St John’s School, Sector 26, shared that it was his unshakeable faith in God and his never-give-up attitude that helped him to maintain a balance between studies and sports. “Cricket is my passion but I understand the fact that education is important as well. I am lucky to have the support of my teachers and parents and moreover they have helped me to polish my skills in academics as well as sports,” said Pranjay.
Pratul P Choudhary, another cricketer from the school, has participated in various national-level cricket tournaments. He scored 94% marks in Commerce in the Class 12th examinations.
“It is not at all difficult to manage both studies and sports. They require focus and hard work. When I study, I do not think about sports and similarly I do not think about exams, when I play sports. I am thankful to my school teachers for boosting my confidence,” said Choudhary.
