A FITTING TRIBUTE TO CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMENS’S DAY
Enthusiastic and energetic members of the VVOGA came together with past pupils of Holy Family Convent, Ladies, Methodist, Museues and St. Pauls in an unique competition –the Girls Power Invitational Inter School Old Girls Sports Meet held on Sunday the 8th at the Sports Ministry grounds.
To promote friendship and fellowship the Visakhians rallied round in numbers to witness history in the making and to cheer our Team on. Among the top performances, our dear Yasmin (nee Boteju) came out as “Hussein Bolt of the Meet” to overtake the famous international sprinter K.G.Badra!!!! What an excellent performance. Rohini (nee……) was no second sprinting with her old “steam”. Our squad in the march past was so smart with their heads held high! Well done girls-that’s Girls Power.

A big thank you to Harshini and her Team for keeping the flag flying high for VV.
