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.
