Presidium believes that academic learning and sports compliment each other. The institution follows a comprehensive educational approach that includes sports as an important pillar of education. The tournament was organised in sync with this approach. Sports are an important contributor in developing the overall personality of students. Other than sportsmanship, it promotes the qualities of leadership, sharing, team spirit and tolerance in students. Sports should essentially be included as a part of school curriculum for students of all ages.
