“We must treasure the achievers of our land because it’s they who raise the sights of all others.” This axiom says it all as Seth Anandram Jaipuria School (SAJS), Vasundhara, Ghaziabad is proud to have such achievers to treasure, and the arena of sports has given various honors to the school name. The right stroke, the right shoot, the right hit and the right move defined these success of many a budding sportsmen and sportswomen of the school. Their talent, honed to perfection by incessant practice and able guidance, stood unveiled in the face of stiff competition.
Games are central to the SAJS curriculum not just because students enjoy them, but because they embody many qualities in which the school believes. Learning to win and lose, to lead and be led, to push oneself to and perhaps beyond one’s limits, to think as part of a team, to know when to strive for more and when to acknowledge defeat, these are all part of learning to be human. Consequently, Jaipuria aims to give every sportsperson the chance to benefit from learning through sport by playing and being taught the sport of his choice at the level appropriate to his abilities and interest. There is a vast range of sports available like Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Karate, Lawn Tennis, Badminton, Skating, Yoga, Gymnastics, Carom and Chess.
