TAEKWONDO/YOGA/GYMNASTICS Taekwondo became popular in 1955. The word taekwondo is composed of three parts -"Tae " means foot/leg. “Kwon" means right and "do" means a way of discipline. To graduate from yellow to black belt the exam is held by experts from the organization. The next level for Black 1 to Black 10 exam will be conducted in the stadium, with participants from all over the country. Exams are conducted once in six months for Yellow to Red to Black belts and once in a year for ‘Black 1 to Black 10. This sport is popular amongst both the boys and girls at school who have won medals at the District and National levels. Yoga and fitness classes like Aerobics are held once a week for all classes.

On a lighter note, the best way to ensure completion of a task is the threat that an erring student would be made to skip his favourite Sports period. This bears testimony of the much awaited Sports period that is held at least twice a week per class.
