Congratulating the winners and complimenting all the participants, Madam Grace Pinto, Managing Director, Ryan Group of Institutions said, “Caught between rising child obesity on one hand and the inclination towards cell phone on the other among the school students, the objective at Ryan Group was to bring the students out of the four walls of the classroom and build the element of team spirit using sports activity as a tool.”
