Inter House Debate Competition

The Maurya School conducted an Inter House Debate Competition for Class VI on the topic, 'Is competition a necessary part of the education process' and for Class VIII on the topic, 'Social media does more harm than good'. Debate is one of the academic activities that gives students a creative room to express what they feel. The students of the various houses participated with full enthusiasm. The debate was conducted on 20th May 2019. The teams were well-prepared and they used various skills like definition, overstatement irony etc. to put forth their views and convince the audience. They put in tremendous hard work to showcase their hidden talent. The activity helped the students to enhance their presentation skills and boosted their confidence. The judges and audience applauded and encouraged them. It was a great learning experience!

Maurya Spellathon

In a time and age of auto-correct, predictive text and spell check, the practice of learning spellings is outdated. Keeping this in mind, The Maurya School organized a 'Spellathon Competition' for Grades VI – VIII. Our students enthusiastically participated in the competition. The winners of the intra-house competition were the competitors for the final round of the Inter-House Spellathon. The students enjoyed a lot. It was a wonderful learning experience not only for the participants but also for their peers and helped in enriching the spelling bank of our students.

Inter-House Antakshari Competition

“Music is the universal language of mankind.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Music is an incredible force which unites everybody. An Inter-House Antakshari Competition was organised by the Maurya School on 3rd of May in the school's quadrangle. All the four houses participated and they competed in the different interesting rounds of this singing battle like Shabd Jaal, Sath Sath and Pehchano aur Gao. The song affair also explored the discrete personalities of the students who not only competed against each other in singing but also enjoyed the budding house rivalry. Antakshari being one of the oldest indoor sports, brought the students and teachers together against the opposition, creating a cherish-able memory for everyone. The Knights House won the contest along with the hearts of the audience with their superb timing and perfect guesses. It rejuvenated and geared everyone up.

English Handwriting Competition

“Like it or not, even in our machine driven world, people still judge you by your handwriting”
We have heard the argument, “Handwriting is over. It is keyboarding skills all the way.” Of course our students need strong keyboarding and technical skills but handwriting has its own benefits and creates brain connections that can’t be easily replaced. Practicing handwriting is an incredibly important exercise for the children, enabling them to develop fine motor skills, confidence and most importantly their very own style. English Handwriting Competition was conducted on 14th September for the children of class 2 in which all of them participated enthusiastically. They were judged on different criteria’s like punctuation and spellings.
