Sandeep's school nurtures him to become a sportsman
Sandeep lives in a village in Telangana. His father is a mason and his mother works as a roller in a beedi (tobacco) factory.
He went to the local government school till Class 4. Sandeep was a bright kid and very good at sports. His parents were unhappy with the quality of education in his school. The school also had no facilities to nurture his talent in sports. There was neither a playground nor a Physical Education Teacher to guide him.
They heard about Matendla School through some elders and decided to enroll him. Once he joined the school Sandeep began to pursue his sporting interests.
The RDF school had a school playground and a qualified Physical Education Teacher. There was also emphasis on sports to develop body and mind. With this, he started to develop an interest in martial arts. He was provided rigorous training and was encouraged to participate in District and State level competitions.
Sandeep was put on a modified meal plan that included an egg a day and 2 glasses of milk to cater to the extra nutrition that he needed to pursue sports. This allowed him to build stamina, endurance and expertise in martial arts.
Sandeep worked hard and performed very well in the State competitions. He qualified for the National Level Karate Championship in Jammu & Kashmir.
He was part of the 20 member team that represented the Telangana state. This was the first time he traveled out of his village and the first time he took a train.
He has brought immense pride to his family, his school and his village by becoming a State Champion!
Sandeep wants to develop a sports culture in schools. He feels that sports has taught him important lessons like discipline and punctuality.
