The annual sports meet at AIMIT, St Aloysius (Deemed to be University), (SADU) held on February 13, brought together students with sportsmanship, unity and excellence.

The event commenced with a vibrant opening ceremony that included a march past and a torch relay. The torchbearers, Poovamma AS, Samoditha HG, Divya NP, Poovanna K P, Saketh, and Sebastian symbolised the values of sportsmanship and excellence as they carried the torch with pride. The flag-hoisting ceremony led by the chief guest Dr Gerald Santosh D’Souza, from the department of physical education, Mangalore University, and the oath-taking ceremony administered by Melwyn, further emphasised the commitment to fair play and sportsmanship among the participants.

In his address, chief guest Dr D’Souza emphasised the need for sports and physical fitness. “Sports is a medicine. Doing physical exercises and fitness on a daily basis will help you improve your health and reduce illnesses,” he said. He further called upon students to spend quality time in sports and games so that they remain energetic and healthy.

Guest of honour Dr Alwyn D’Sa, registrar St Aloysius College (Deemed to be University) wished the students well and emphasised the need to always keep oneself fit and lively through sports and games.
