Hockey, the national sport of India, is played at the Assam Valley School very enthusiastically. This year was no ordinary year for hockey. Students from all the hostels put in their maximum effort during practice for a better outcome during the inter-house matches. To develop their interest in the game, as well as their skills, The Assam Valley School boys were trained under Mr. Herojit Singh (SAI Coach) who flew in from Manipur.

The Assam Valley School boys played a friendly against a club from Tezpur in June. The match was nail-biting and both the teams fought a tough battle. The match ended with a draw, both the teams scoring two goals each. Unfortunately the Assam Valley School boys lost in penalty shoot-outs with a score of 4-2.

We look forward to playing more matches and to making our school proud.

Yoga is a process through which one learns how to live a life in the most integrated way. Yoga is viewed at one level as a science of personal growth for spiritual experience and can be viewed at the therapy level as a science of health and healing.
