Addressing the athletes, Dr Vincent Alva said, “A beautiful ground is present in which young athletes are going to break the records. Medals are important. But more than that, active participation is important. Only education does not make a person successful. Mixture of education with sports and extra-curricular activities makes a person successful. To know about an institution and its quality, one must go to its backyard which is the sports field. I feel proud that I am sending my daughter to this reputed St Mary’s institution.” He concluded his speech by wishing the athletes and the schools taking part in AICS meet all the very best. 

Speaking on the occasion, Fr Valerian Mendonca, correspondent, St Mary’s Educational Institutions said, “Sports torch, which was lit, symbolizes spirit of game and sports in the field. St Mary’s institution tries to foster relationship and friendship among all the schools participating in the sports meet. I hope older records are broken and new records will emerge today. There is great joy in participating in the event and hence no one is a loser. Important thing in life is not conquering but fighting well. I hope today the athletes will compete with true sportsman spirit and make this sports meet a successful one.” 

Dr Thomas J Quadros, Principal of Glowinstar Integrated School, Udupi was the chief guest of the valedictory programme of AICS Udupi district sports meet. He said, “We have waited for this auspicious day from a year. The sports meet had started gloriously and has come to an end. Winning is not important. Life is the biggest race. One must participate in the life’s race. Competing and surviving the race of life is very important. One can learn lessons of life in the playground and not in the classroom. We must make utmost use of life and it will be the greatest gift from our end to the almighty.”
