Sports remain a great metaphor for life's more difficult lessons.
Yagappites learn the spirit of sportsmanship through various sport activities conducted during the academic year. Sports and games are means of mental and physical growth.
"You win some, you lose some, and it balances out at the end".
Sportsmanship teaches kids how to be strong and to be strong still even when defeat is on hand. Striving to win in every field can be surely built around playing sports. Willingness to give an all- out effort, showing grace under pressure and ability to accept defeat when losing to a better team or a player, are good indications of true competitive nature that a child can extract from playing sports. So, physical education is made compulsory and valued as part of the school's curriculum and an integral part of a child's development. Prowess , our Annual Sports day, is one of the grand festivities of the school. The school has four houses viz. Mars ,Jupiter,Pluto and Venus. Children compete with true sportsmanship to bag the coveted cup for their house.
