A fantastic turnout from the parents along with the pleasant weather was the perfect boost for the students. The sports day began with the guard of honour for the chief guests led by the Director Mrs. Ratna Reddy, Principals Ms. Iffat Ibrahim and Mr. Omkar Joshi, and the student council members. Dr. Akun Sabharwal, IPS, Director, Excise Commission, presided over the occasion in the morning as the chief guest while Mr. A.

After the torch relay, carried out by students selected to play various sports at national level, the Chief Guests spoke words of encouragement to kick-start the Sports Day.
The pre-primary and primary programme began with a visual display of the tiny tots of Nursery & PP 1 parading to the beats of the foot-tapping music with their colourful pom-poms followed by a Pool Noodle Drill by the PP 2 students, which included various delightful hand and leg movements focusing on the whole body exercise. The Nursery students of GB & JH were not far behind as they showcased the Wibble-Wobble Fun Game` while they walked at their own pace and crossed obstacles.
Students of PP 1 of GB & JH campuses participated in the Spectrum-Fun Obstacle Race, after which the sports field came alive with the students of Grades 1-3 of the KP Campus performing `Waves of Wonder`, in which they coordinated hand movements while learning how to work in teams and finished by forming a star in the centre. The morning`s last performance saw the students of Grades 1-3 of the GB Campus come together for the drill Morning Glory, wherein the students coordinated hand and feet movements and made the CHIREC formation. The performance was followed by more rounds of the competitive obstacle race for the students of Grades 1-3 as well as for the students of Grade 5 of CHIREC`s adopted government school. Prizes were distributed to the winners by the chief guest.
The secondary section`s sports day began with a 200 m race for the students of Grades 9-12 and a Mixed Relay Race for Grades 6-8.

Roaring Rapture by students of Grades VI-VIII of the KP campus marked the enthralling last performance to a spellbound audience.
The interact club prepared a small video on Green Goals and made the parents take an oath to keep Hyderabad clean by starting from home. CHIREC`s school band, Zero Gravity played inspiring songs to keep the audience engaged with the sports activities.
