Shantanu Chawan, Sports Captain
I wish my school days could have dragged on a little longer or that I could go back and do it later in life. My journey in this institution right from Hiradale has been an amazing one and I have made some extremely beautiful and unforgettable memories here. This institution has provided me an opportunity to refine my talents into skills and my hard work and determination into trophies and medals.

When I was in the fifth grade, I dreamt of wearing the school blazer with the batch of a sports captain on it. I had promised my coach that I would become the Sports Captain of the school. I hope he takes pride and is very happy on me getting elected as the Sports Captain. I as a Sports Captain owe it to my coach for training me so hard that I become worthy and capable enough for this post. . I am thankful to all my teachers who inculcated a sense of sportsmanship and shaped my personality. It has been a while and it is quite an enjoyable post but there are a lot of duties and responsibilities which come along with the privileges of being a Sports Captain.

I clearly remember that it was the 13th of January, 2016 that the school’s council body was announced. I had a gut feeling that I surely would not get elected as the Sports Captain. All my friends were telling me that I was the Sports Captain Boy for sure. But I was the one who argued with them that the chances of me being the Sports Captain were very slim. The very next day, the school’s council body was announced. I was startled, stunned and amazed as my name was announced as the sports captain boy for the year 2016-17. The burst of emotions that I had the very next moment are beyond my explanation. I consider it to be a great honor and privilege to be the Sports Captain of the school. To be the Sports Captain of the school is like a dream come true for me. I'm extremely proud to be one of the Council Members of Hiranandani Foundation School, Thane.
