2016 Sports Day
2016 CTIE Sports.
As they say, “Work without play makes Jack a dull boy”, so CTIE can never students all the time in class just chasing after the knowledge in the books all the time but ensure that they have time to express what they are made of in the field through active sporting activities.
For sports fans, sports are the epitome of hard work and dedication. To get to the pinnacle of their sport, even the most naturally gifted athletes have to give it their all. Therefore, on Saturday February 13th, 2016 at Tangaza University College grounds,
CTIE held its semester sports and all the students took part from beginning till to the very end of it all.
As Ken Doherty says, “The five S’s of sports training are: stamina, speed, strength, skill, and spirit; but the greatest of these is spirit”, the students dedicated all their spirit and in participating in the sports not only to make the day a success but to enjoy themselves and do what they do best during the co-curricular exercises. Being an Institute for education, sports is an integral part of their studies because soon after their studies, they will be assigned to take care of their students both in class and in during their Physical Education sessions.
As Doug Williams says, “Never give up, never give in, and when the upper hand is ours, may we have the ability to handle the win with the dignity that we absorbed the loss”, the students were never much incline to winning or showing their prowess in different activities of the day but they all showed a spirited sports people out to develop their skills, talents and work together as one big family of CTIE.
As Vince Lombardi says, “Winning means you're willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than anyone else”, all the students who participated that day were all winners. The following were some of the students who put extra effort in whatever they participated in:

As Muhammad Ali says, “Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them -- a desire, a dream, a vision”, and that is why at the end of the day some of those who participated were rewarded as a way to motivate them to develop that desire, that dream and that vision.
At CTIE, we Teach Hearts, Touch Minds and holistically Transform Lives of all our students. At the time they graduate from CTIE, Tangaza University College, the students are ready to fully give back to the society what they have learnt and experienced during the period of study.
Long live CTIE fraternity.
