SPORTS & GAMES
The principles of the Lowry Athletic Program are unique in that we cater to, not just the athletically gifted students, but also those who have lesser aptitude in sports and games. Participation in the Athletics Program instills the development of moral qualities, social abilities, emotional maturity, and mental alertness. Our objectives are to develop citizenship traits such as cooperation, leadership, self-discipline, fairness and honesty in dealing with others. Your child will find sport at Lowry Memorial College & Group of Institutions to be fun, challenging and competitive.
We are developing as wide a program as possible to give each student the opportunity to discover a sport or sports which he/she is interested in.
Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Carom, Chess, Cricket, Cross country running, Football (soccer), Handball, Kabaddi, Kho kho, Soft ball, Road races, Tennis, Throw ball, Tug-of-war, Volleyball etc.
