12 Jul: ASISC Regional Quiz Competition

18 Jul: Albert Barrow Memorial – All India Inter-School Creative Writing Competition 2014

Students put forth their sincere effort and saw these competitions as opportunities to enhance their capabilities. Though they did not place, they learnt many valuable lessons and thoroughly enjoyed the process.

A few students share their experience:

The ASISC Regional Quiz Competition 2014 held in Chennai was indeed an enriching experience, one that widened my horizons to vast and limitless knowledge that includes almost anything and everything. Despite not having any prior experience to quiz competitions, I never felt intimidated, as this for me was more of an interesting game than anything else. I’m happy to have been exposed to such a unique opportunity.

I had the opportunity to participate in the Frank Anthony Memorial Debate Competition 2014 – Category I that was held in Trivandrum. We travelled by bus; it was my first overnight bus journey. By about six in the morning, we reached Trivandrum and took an auto to the school.

 

The debate topic was announced and we got an hour to prepare. The topic was “The environment can take the current rate of industralization”. The topic was extremely thought provoking. All the contestants were well prepared and even though we didn’t win, I learnt a lot in those few hours.

 

As we had an evening free ahead of us, we decided to take a tour of the city. We visited the Padmanabhaswamy and Attakal temples, the museums and (keeping the best for the last ) the beach!  We left ‘God’s own country’ with memories to cherish and more to learn.
