Annual Inter-School Festival - Utsav 2018
History of world is full of men who rose to the occasion and proved themselves by sheer force of self-confidence, bravery and tenacity and Mr Nelson Mandela was one of them. This year we adopted “Be The Legacy” – MADIBA 100 as the theme for our annual Inter-School Festival Utsav-2018
The competitions were held at various locations of the school’s green and spacious campus. As usual, the Dr Durga Prasad Pandey Memorial Debate – ‘Rhetoric’ was the centre piece of the cultural competitions. The school’s auditorium, Surya, was a fitting venue for a keen debate on whether “A good head and a good heart are a formidable combination”.
The other competitions were ‘Expressions’, Banner Making Competition and 'Tamasha' - Street Theatre. The young, ignited minds were our greatest assets for various competitions.
Judges with a wide range of talents judged the competition. They ranged from educationists, architects, Artist, Radio Jockey to theatre personalities. Mrs Mubin Zehra, Ms Sanam Khanna, Ms Monami Sinha, Ms Shahana Chakravarty, Mr Anant Jha, Mr Kapil Sharma, Mr Raoul Juneja, Ms Uma Jain and Mrs Sharda Chawla
The competitions seems to get tougher each year and this year was no exception. The closely contested results this year were:
Eman Hadi Ghazniwal from the host school won the first prize with her inspiring debate. Khushi Singh from St. Anthony’s Sr. Secondary school, Hauz Khas was the first runner up.
In Banner Making Competitions Springdales School, Pusa Road and Dhaula Kuan won the senior and junior categories respectively.
Manava Bharati India International School was the winner in the Street Theatre and New Green Fields School was the first runner up.
The rolling trophy was awarded to the host school. Later it was handed over to Springdales School, Pusa Road, who was next highest scorer in the line.
There was an abundance of talent on display from young students who had worked hard. They were all winners because participation is what matters and it is the experience that counts.
