Our School Playground was of a very large size. It is six hundred feet long and four hundred feet broad. It is oblong in shape. It is covered with beautiful green grass. The grasses are regularly pruned. So, the playground looks quite plain. Different kinds of games are played on it. There are different courts for different games. Necessary lines have been marked in the courts. On our playground, there are courts for the game of different activities like Football, Highball, Volleyball, Badminton, Hockey, Cricket, Ha-di-du and Hide and Seek.
We play different games in different seasons on our playground. We play football in the rainy season. In the dry season, we play cricket and many other games. Every day we play here after the school is over. We play from 3 P.M to 4 P.M.
Sometimes we play match-games of football on our playground. The best eleven of our school plays with the best eleven of another school. Many people of our area come here to see the football match. We also hold match games of Cricket and Volleyball. On such days, our playground is full of uproar.
Our playground is in charge of the game’s teacher of our school. He takes care of it with the help of the Captain.
We have very strong teams of players; they practice different games in the playground. Various matches are held on this playground. The P.T. instructor of our school gives us training in the playground.
- He encourages all the players. Our teams have won many prizes in sports and games. Our school playground has produced many great players. They play at the national level. I am proud of my school playground.
The playground is located about a kilometer from our school. So the students have the opportunity of walking to the playground. As all games are played in the evening the students find it pleasant to go to the ground and play.
Our playground has an ideal location. It is nearly one square mile. It has a tennis court. The students can play cricket in the space allotted for it. We do the long jump and high jump and run till we get tired. We also play football. Our physical training teacher sees to it that we play all games. He teaches both boys and girls all kinds of games. There is an indoor stadium in which some of the students play chess and carom.
Our school is particular in taking part in the interschool competitions. Some of the students have won acclaim as good sportsmen. The student cricketers are well up in the game and they often play matches with other schools and colleges. One Rave of the ninth standard has chances of being included in the test matches.
Our physical training master encourages all students to play the games they are interested in. He teaches us the games with great interest. Being young he is able to play with us.
He conducts classes on body-building in the playground itself. He gives us a list of the nutritional foodstuffs we have to eat. His interest in the well-being of the students is so great that he advises the students, who look puny and weak to take food of nutritional value. We are lucky to have such a good, efficient physical training master.
Our playground has a number of big trees under which we sit and talk on matters of interest to us. There is a small river by the side of the playground. But the students are warned not to swim in the river. The students who want to become swimmers are given training by some expert swimmers among the students. In the evening there is a pleasant breeze in the playground.
The students enjoy playing different games until sunset. Our school gives special importance to games and so it insists that all students should take part in all games.
One of the most important goals of any English class should be to help students learn how to express themselves to an audience — how to tell their own stories, how to provide much-needed information, and how to convince others to see things from a different perspective.
