It was an enthusiastic team of girl athletes from DGPS, who set out on November 9, 2016 to participate in the Inter-school Athletic Meet at the Abu Dhabi Indian School.
The event started off colourfully, with a march past of all the 24 competing teams, this was followed by all assembled singing the national anthem. Their Sports Coordinator declared the meet open.
DGPS girls participated with enthusiasm and great spirit. Lydia won the gold in shot put and Prarthna bagged silver in the 100 m dash.
The relay squads too had their moment of glory, with the Super Senior squad of Nisali, Naomi, Harriet and Prarthna, winning the silver medal and the junior relay squad made up of: Sanika, Brianna, Janine and Enuli winning a bronze.
It was a great day for our girl athletes, who returned in high spirits from Abu Dhabi with our medals.
The team would like to thank Mr. Shariq and Mrs. Joan for taking such good care of us and guiding us through the event.
It is truly fantastic to be able to have such remarkable opportunities to test our mettle against our peers.
