Formal inauguration of the newly constructed swimming pool.
‘When global warming melts the Earth, swimmers will rule’
The construction of the swimming pool at CBS began in February 2017. Though the swimming pool was ready in the month of March, it was formally inaugurated on 23th April, 2018. It is 25m by 15m and the depth extends from 4 feet to 5 feet.
The inaugural ceremony was conducted in a simple and somber manner, inside the vicinity of the swimming pool.
The opening ceremony was initiated by Col. Vivek Sharma, who kindly consented to be the Chief Guest. As an officer, he has served the country with vast experience in Mechanized Division. He is a keen sportsman and an adventurist.
The chief Guest was welcomed with a bouquet of flowers. After the ceremony of ‘cutting of ribbon’ the Chief Guest addressed the gathering. In his inspiring speech, the honourable Chief Guest motivated the students to participate in all competitions, particularly sports. He said that discipline acts like a bridge between goal and accomplishments and one learns more outside the classroom than in it!
A swimming competition was organised on the occasion. Ashish Chauhan (Std XII) stood first, Yash Parashar (Std X) came second and Ruskin Gill (Std IX) came third. The Chief Guest gave away the prizes to the proud winners.
The Headmaster, Mr. S.K. Tyagi thanked the Chief Guest for his presence and a token of appreciation was presented to him.
Tea was served to the guests.
It was a pleasant evening spent, as everyone basked in the serenity of the pool.
Swimming is no doubt an extraordinary sport- ‘It is the only sport in which the coach yells at you for breathing!’
