Annual Sports Day
Children these days are mostly cooped up indoors, expending long hours in unhealthy activities such as watching television or playing online video games. This sedentary lifestyle, coupled with poor food habits, choices and ever increasing screen time has led to myriad problems and conditions. The constricting spaces in their own localities mean children do not spend enough time in outdoor activities. This has resulted in alarming rise in lifestyle diseases and conditions such as obesity, diabetes, stress, anxiety and depression, even among the very young ones. In order to wean the children away from the unhealthy choices and to promote ” Healthy mind in a Healthy body” Annual Sports Day was organized on August 31st by West Point School in the school field. The occasion was graced by our Ex Student Mr Neeraj Zimba Tamang, MLA Darjeeling, Mr Dinesh Tamang and Mr Ajay Pariyar executive members of the Cantonment Board and Kotwali Samaj.
