The challenges were Jack planks, Jump squats, Shoulder tap Pushups, Mountain Climbers, and Toss clap and catch.
In the CHEERiossss: ONE TEAM ONE DREAM challenge, each house recorded cheerleading to motivate their house participants. Various students showcased their juggling and balancing skills with the football in the Glide It animation. Students of classes VI-VII also performed yoga, aerobics, and taekwondo. A mascot challenge was held where students from IX-XII designed a mascot for their respective houses.
Our teachers have always been our role models. Challenges of teachers and support staff were also shown which motivated the students to stay fit and healthy at home as well. Last but not least an animation by the AAINA theatre society was shown which depicted how we forget the accomplishments of our sports stars and deprive them of their deserved rewards and leave them struggling to earn their livelihood.
