“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.Our school DPS-NK believes in this proverb and hence creates several opportunities for us to showcase and develop our areas of interest.What else can be a better stage than that of an Inter-school Competition for showcasing our talents.
AyushShaw and myself, the Head Boy and Head Girl of the school, attended the first Representative meeting at the host school (DonBosco, Liluah) responsible for the Inter-school Competition, on the 5th of July,2017, accompanied and guided by our teacher Ms. Madhusree Das. We were welcomed and were given a brochure with detailed description of the competitions that were to be conducted.Following which, a doubt clearing session was held and some general instructions regarding the event was given. We were also allotted slot numbers for the final day, by a picking method. After the session we were all given food packets following which we left for our schools.
The very next day onwards began our preparation for the big day.With only two weeks of time in hand we began our rehearsals whole- heartedly.
However, we all felt that the final day arrived too soon.
On 22nd July,2017 all the participants assembled at the school campus by 7am.Excited and nervous,we all boarded the bus and began our trip. However, after entering the DBL campus all our nervousness disappeared and we bubbled with joy and enthusiasm.We were all welcomed there and after the registration,we were assigned a classroom each for keeping our props and other stuff.The events in which we decided to participate were, Unconventional Music, Bosco Orientalic (Eastern dance), Collage Making, Chess, Pictography and Street Play.
The main event began, following an Inauguration Ceremony where the symbol of “Boscotsav’17” was revealed, and lighting of lamp was conducted.
19 schools participated in all. DBL, had also organised for a help desk which cleared all qualms,if any and a Refreshment bar where students from different schools could meet and interact with each other.
Despite the rain, the event was a great success and well pulled through.
The day ended with a prize distribution ceremony where all the deserving winners were honoured. This hour of the day was an overwhelming one for all of us atDPS-NK as we bagged the First Prize in the game of Chess.
It was overall an amazing experience where not only did we get to showcase our talents but also learned several new things and came to know about our actual positions in a bigger sphere.We really cherish and love being a part of such an event as it also gives us the opportunity to make new friends and gather more knowledge.
