  Family Sports Day 2017

Family Sports Day

Ashoka Universal School, Chandsi came up with an innovative thought and arranged "The Family Sports Day".

The main motto was to gift the children an enjoyable day with their parents.

Races were organized for the father, mother and the child. Children spent a memorable day with parents.

This event was highly appreciated by parents as they realised the missing factor of fun in today’s on-going stressed scheduled life. Some remembered the glorious memories of their childhood. They also enjoyed the feeling of togetherness.

Family race was also held where the father got a chance to make the child ready for school. The parents realised the efforts taken by their better halves in their daily life. Rather than the parents motivating their children, this time the children motivated their parents and cheered for them. This brought an awareness of the factor that participation to complete is more important than the winning the race. The value of sporting spirit and healthy competition was imbibed rather than initiating unhealthy competition amongst kids.

It was a part of various activities conducted by Ashoka Universal School Astronomical Observatory in the Academic year 2016-2017.

A "super moon" occurs when the moon becomes full on the same day as its perigee, a point in the moon's orbit when it is closest to Earth. The term is borrowed from the pseudoscience of astrology, but has been adopted by popular culture and astronomers. Super moons generally appear to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons. The November "super moon" was extra close to Earth (Nov. 14), providing an extraordinary sight for sky watchers .But exactly what makes this month's full moon so special.  November's super moon —a term used to describe a full moon is at its perigee, or closest point to Earth during the lunar orbit — will be the biggest and brightest super moon to rise in almost 69 years. In fact, the full moon won't come this close to Earth again until Nov. 25, 2034.

This activity was planned & conducted by Mr.Dilip Thakur with the help of grade XII students Master Abhishek Sharma, Rutwik Joshi and appreciated by Chairman of the school, Shri Ashok Kataria, Jt. Secretary- Shri. Shrikant Shukla & HM-Mrs. Renuka Joshi.
