Annual Sportsmeet

The inaugural function of the Annual Sports and Cultural Meet of the Sri Sathya Sai Educational Institutions is held every year on the 11th of January in the Sri Sathya Sai Hill View Stadium. Bhagawan has always emphasized that active sports and upholding of the Indian Culture are essential parts of an Integral System of Education in Human Values. On this day every year, the Primary School, the Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School and the three University campuses of Anantapur, Brindavan and Prasanthi Nilayam come together for an exhibition of events demonstrating a high degree of perfection, co-ordination and skill.

The Meet is inaugurated by Baba lighting the Sports meet torch followed by March Past by the students of all campuses, extraordinary feats of adventure, colourful and artistic group performances and well coordinated, rhythmic group drills. The various cultural, sports and games competitions in the campuses culminate in the Valedictory and Prize Distribution Function which coincides with the Makara Sankranthi day on 14th January in the Divine Presence.
