Grade IV student brings laurels to the school by winning the prestigious,' Inter-school Jawaharlal Nehru Hindi Declamation Contest'

The interschool Hindi declamation contest was held at Sheikh Rashid auditorium, Indian high school on the 9th of December 2013, Monday, with approximately 16 to 17 schools participating in the event. It's important to note that there were separate competitions for boys and girls, with three categories – Sub-Junior, Junior and Senior, and this report covers the sub-junior category contest for the girls, the topic for which was: 'Pardesmeinapnedeshkiyaad'.

Three eminent Hindi teachers, each from a different school, comprised the judging panel and indeed had the capability to separate the 'wheat' from the 'chaff' and to thus, identify the winners.

Ms.SaieDevendraLawate of Grade IV-F, who won first place, was very confident and excited and it was obvious to anyone who observed that she was very well prepared for the event. However, she did have some guidance as she says, "My teachers guided me and my friends assisted me whenever I needed help. If I'm here it is with the blessings of God and my parents. I was fortunate enough to have my mother accompany me and provide me with the necessary encouragement, to be confident and to give it my best shot." And that is exactly what she achieved, when she rendered an excellent performance. The result indeed is, for all to see!!

The second and third prizes were won by Our Own English School, Sharjah and a Dubai based School respectively. For her meritorious performance, Ms.Saie was rewarded with a trophy and a certificate of excellence.

Indian High School has once again proved itself to be at the very pinnacle of success, and that there is no one to match Indian High School when it comes to the meritorious performances of its spectacularly outstanding students. It goes without saying that the real recipients of the certificate and the trophy are the respected teachers, who have moldedSaie to go ahead and win the Trophy.
