Drawing competitions were conducted for Grade 5 and 6 on the theme “Yoga” and “My Classroom”. This activity was organised to explore and encourage creativity in children and offer them a platform to show their skill in drawing and colouring. It inspired children to think and work creatively and promoted artistic excellence. Children participated earnestly in the competition and came up with amazing artwork in drawing.
Quiz competitions were conducted from Grade 5 to Grade 9. For quiz competition, each grade was divided into 5-6 group with 5 students in each group. All the questions were asked using the smart boards provided so it was a very interactive and interesting session for the students. Mazes of intuited and interesting questions were asked to the students, testing each aspect of the educational knowledge base. The quiz had a rapid-fire round which made it more exciting for the students. The students were very happy in answering the quiz and learning new informative things.
