The School Cricket Team played the second match against G.D. Goenka School. They bowled first and were set to make a target of 260 runs in 35 overs as a result of bad bowling. Their batting was much better this time but ultimately they lost by 64 runs. They were then knocked out of the tournament.

The second round of the Hockey Tournament started. Blue House lost to Green House with an embarrasing final score of 4-1, Nikhil Chandran scoring the only goal for Blue in the first 20 seconds. Red House defeated Yellow House 2-0. Yellow is yet to score a goal in the tournament. 

One day, when I lost my homework,
And I missed the bus.
The teacher was real mad at me,
And then the day got worse.
I missed my goal on the football field,
I was feeling very drowsy.
I couldn't do the test at all,
My artwork came out lousy.

Finally, when I got back home,
I sat with Nash, my dog.
I told him about everything,
And fell asleep, like a log.
He licked my face, and woke me up
And tried to get me going.
But I was still too tuckered out,
And soon I got back to snoring.

Next day when I got up I found,
That everything was well
And as for my new day at school,
I really turned out swell!

I saw this amazing film "To Corbett with Love" by Dr. Susan Sharma, an environmentalist, over the weekend. It was a thrilling story of a Mahout, Subedar Ali who was mauled by a tiger once when he wandered into the jungle to look for fodder for his cattle. However, even after being hospitalized for a year his spirits weren't dampened and he was back in action in the Corbett Reserve the following year. 
Watch out for more films on environmental issues at the IHC and IIC .Get in touch with the Environment Awareness Hobby group for more details.
