The first of the games was hula-hoop in which 10 students had to form a chain and pass the hula hoop from one end to the other. In the second game, the students had to run from one end to the other with a cup full of water and had to form a pyramid.

In the third game, a team of five players had to balance water in a paper plate and pass it on to the next player in a bucket to the end of the finishing line and the team with the lowest amount of spill won.

In the fourth game, the players inflated balloons tied to their legs. An arena was formed by all the players holding hands and cheering for their team.

Each class sent two students for the tussle with the obvious choice being the promptest and the most agile participant. The objective was to burst the opponent’s balloon, with leg and in the process save their own. The school also organised a relay competition. for the students.
