Annual School Marathon

Annual School Marathon

There dawned a light on the morn’ of  March 31, 2018 when the entire school willed itself to be woven into the tapestry of time. An event, so intricately linked with the very gravel that Ugyen Academy is comprised, the annual marathon is the embodiment of every defiant eye and every determined chin there is to an individual. This event unfurled with utmost zeal that was ever witnessed in the school. Every child took to the joy of participating as a single body and in unison swung past the fibres of the finishing line.

The program officially began with the warming up session by Dr. Kim who enlightened the school with the Korean techniques to flex the body in a way that will avoid muscle cramps and abdominal pain. Every student tingled their athletic bone and got on their marks to run on the tracks of an approximate of 14km for the boys and 9km for the girls. So did they run alongside glancing passer-bys and amused pedestrians, whistling their way through the murk-filled potholes with a jovial spirit instilled within them.

 The volunteers along the roads were a constant support to the athletes and every now and then handed bottles of water and other amenities to the participants. It was indeed, a sight to see because this orchestrated event produced the most mellifluous of melodies when every boy and every girl so zealously ran for the beauty of running. The entire marathon was based on the theme: “Running for wellness is running for happiness” and with this the students ran for a beneficial cause that would pave a way for a happy tomorrow.

It was not long until the students came filing in after the long run, marching their way past the finishing point on the football pitch of the school. Though every one is a winner in the hearts of hearts of themselves, the winners were declared and the results were as follows:

JUNIOR GIRLS DIVISION:

1st position: Sneha Oli.

2nd position: Dechen Pelmo Wangdi.

3rd position: Desang Lhaki Tenzing.

JUNIOR BOYS DIVISION:

All in all, it was an indelible experience for everyone and it wouldn’t have been a success without the help and support of the Superintendent of the Police, the health officials, the volunteers and the teachers who were the spine and the vertebra of this event. Our special thanks is directed towards the Principal of the school who bestowed upon us this opportunity of being a part of something so priceless which will forever be encased in the timeless casket of infinity.

One of the poem written to commemorate the World Poetry Day.

UA: A School of Will

Nestled amidst the cocoon of the wilderness,

through the narrow gorge,

through the indiscernible depth of the sea;

heralds an enigmatic edifice of stone.

A monument so majestic,

a temple to all inquisitives;

thirsty for a word of wisdom

in a quest to quench the soul.

In rhythms and symphonies,

every scholar doth sing;

praises of this magnificient institution;

Ugyen Academy, still at its zenith.

                                                            XII Science A
