Welcome Speech For Chief Guest At The Annual Sports Day

A very Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to Honorable Principal Sir/Madam, respected teachers, seniors, and my dear friends, Warm Greetings to Everyone!

On behalf of ………(Institutions Name), I extend a very warm welcome to all of you present here on the 12th annual sports meet of our school/college/university. Sports are an integral as well as a necessary part of our lives.

Sports Day at ABC School/College/University (Institutions name) is a platform to showcase the talent and efforts put in by the student to make it a successful event. Sports here at this institution is not only about competition, but it is also about having fun, being physically active, learning the basics of sports and building coordination and teamwork and so to give the students an opportunity to display their talent, self-confidence, patience, zeal, and sportsmanship. Participation in sports can help build self-esteem, confidence, and can motivate students to excel academically and can help build their social skills. It can even teach the student the ways and benefits of goal setting & practice.

So, with this purpose, we organize a sports meet every year in an order where 100% participation is encouraged and each participant is rewarded and it is the participation of children that is most important for us and gives us immense joy. This year our institution has been declared as one of the best institutions of the city which has included and is following extra-curricular activities in the daily time-table. I wish to thank and congratulate each one of you dear parents for, without your support, it would not have been possible for us. Dear parents, what you see today, is the culmination of massive, continuous efforts put in by the students and teachers. So, sit tight and cheer our students with your generous applause.

Parents too participated in the 4 x 100 m enthusiastically to mark the sports day.

I am pleased to share that the distinguished guest to honor us with her presence today as the Chief Guest of our Sports day is none other than XYZ (Name of Guest), the legendary sportsman.
