The idiom “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” holds true even for the young learners. Sports, whether team-based or individual, are great for children as they provide not just physical activity, but also help build children’s self-esteem, confidence, social skills and motivate them to excel in life. In recognition of the importance of sports in a child’s life, GLOBAL INDIAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, ABUDHABI celebrated its Annual Sports Day, AHLETA 2019-2020
