Normally, Sports Day at Oak Grove is scheduled for early October or so. But in 2015, it was our sheer luck that it got pushed to October 24. And so, a bunch of us travelling to the Queen of Hills, for the Mussoorie Half Marathon on Oct 25, had an opportunity to attend yet another Sports Day.

For many of us, this was a repeat that had taken decades to happen. And as the day wore on, it felt like time had just stood still all those years. Of course, a few things had changed, they always do. But the spirit was still intact, and alive, and well. The valley was resplendent with colours, aided aptly by athletes sporting T-shirts in House colours, participating in the true spirit of sportsmanship – For the honour of our school and glory of sports.

Let the joy commence! We hope you enjoy this glimpse of the day full of nostalgia and pride that we were privileged to witness at our Glorious Valley Green. Three cheers for Oak Grove!
