The event, which saw active participation of the students in events including Obstacle Race, Straight Race, Spoon and Lemon Race, Relay Race, and Tug of War, witnessed their parents participate in Needle and thread Race, Three legged Race and Musical Chairs, while their grandparents took part in Balancing the Ball activity organized for them.
Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that it was that time of the year when three generations--students, their parents and grandparents-associated with the school, bring out their sporting gear-sports shoes and track suits-out of the closet to have some fun together on the sports ground.
“The sports ground of Spring Dale Senior School came alive with three generations togging out in their sports finery to forge a deeper bond with each other through their participation in various sports events,” he said.
He added that students, their parents and grandparents had fun in the two-day camp as they simultaneously participated in various events that enabled them to learn lessons in team spirit and coordination. “Such camps are regularly organized with a view to making learning an exciting proposition for the students,” Mr Sharma said.
Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that the camp infused a spirit of discipline and coordination among the students, which are essential attributes for achieving success in life.
