Though Cricket is the craze in our country at the moment, what with Team India winning the World Cup 2011 and all, yet there is a lot of talent for other sports as well, which is proven by some sporadic yet spectacular performances around the country at times.
In the HOPE foundation school, a 2 week long football tournament league was introduced for the first time. 7 teams took part in this from various Primary classes. On 27th March 2011, the semi-finals and the final were held. All players were awarded with prizes for participation while the winners and runners-up received trophies and few goodies.
The most interesting thing about this tournament was that the players have never played football in their entire life and they learnt it from the PE teacher Mr. Rajakumar, who himself has played in District Level in Karnataka. The student have put in much hard work by coming to school early morning everyday and practiced before school and have achieved this incredible feat. We hope that they continue to hone their new found skills and put it to good use.
We welcome sports volunteers who can come over to the school and spend time teaching the student more.
