The annual sports, cultural competition and prize giving ceremony were held at Nilphamari Government Women College on Sunday morning. Asaduzzaman Noor, a ruling party lawmaker from Nilphamari-2 constituency, addressed the function as the chief guest while Nilphamari Government Women College Principal Professor Md Obaidul Anwar was in the chair.
Addressing the program, Asaduzzaman Noor said, "Only traditional education does not make a student skillful for the present competitive world. So, co-curriculum activities are very important to make them competent. A student should play football, cricket, recite poem and sing song."
Professor Obaidul Anwar said, "Our college has a reputation of conducting such sports program. I believe this kind of program will make the students fit for the competitive world. This tradition of arranging such programs will continue in coming days." Principal Dilruba Banu, vice-principal of the college, delivered the welcome speech while Nilphamari Sadar Awami League President Abuzar Rahman, Sadar Upazilla Chairman Sahid Mahamud Education Engineering Department Executive Engineer Sultan Mahmud along with principals of different colleges were present as special guests.
Conducted by Rubayat Hossain Hiya, a student of 1st year from Humanities group, all the college staff, employees and students attended the program spontaneously.
