The Sports Day began with the school prayer, the school song and the oath taking led by Assisting Captain of the Pumas House Mokshit Kanungo. The first event of the day was the 1 km race. The students downloaded the Nike Run Club app, ran in their home, building or their vicinity holding their mobile phone as it recorded the run on the app and later sent a screenshot of the run to their respective teacher.

The other events conducted during the day were juggle the ball on the bat, squat with book on the head, hit the ball against the wall and catch. All the students joined their virtual classrooms and the allotted teachers recorded the counts for each of the events. The last event for students was a quiz on sports exclusively for students of Std 10. A keen contest ensued between the four houses, Equus, Pumas, Dolphins and Eagles. At the end, the scores of the three houses Equus, Dolphins and Eagles were tied for the second and third positions, with Pumas being the clear winners taking the 1st place. Two additional rounds had to be played as tie-breakers in which Eagles bagged the 2nd position and Dolphins the 3rd position.
