Literary Characters Come Alive
A Book is a gift you can open again and again. –Garrison Keillor
We lose ourselves in books yet it is there only that we find ourselves. The gripping story line enraptures us as we delve into a fictional world. It is the spooky mystical characters which bring the story alive. These characters are the lifeline of a child’s imaginary world. They are the heart and soul of a great literature.
The Sunny Saturday morning of 2nd May 2020, opened the portals to a child’s world of imagination through an online enactment competition-Literary Characters Come Alive! hosted by the Primary Wing of the Indraprastha International School,Dwarka.
From Rumplestiltskin to the Mad Hatter, the students of class V from all the branches of Indraprastha School dished out a lavish and breath- taking spectacle where their beloved characters came to life . The mesmerizing renditions and beguiling performances scooped appreciations- not just from the judges, but from everyone present there. The performances truly showcased the efforts put in by the students and especially by the parents who had prepared their children at home – at ground zero, with online support from our teachers.
The event was graced by the presence of Dr Rajesh Hassija (Managing Director, Indraprastha Schools) who never ceases to steer the way and constantly motivates the entire team. The competition concluded with admirations for the little ones by Mr A Khan, (Principal, Indraprastha Global School, Noida).
The result is a compilation of judgment of all the adjudicators. Heartiest congratulations to the winners and commendations for all the participants for putting up an impeccable show.

Much like charity begins at home, health, hygiene and sanitation begin with us .With the increase in health risks to humans, it has become very important to stay hygienic. The lack of hygiene in the world has played a vital role in triggering several chronic diseases. It has become mandatory to fight the war of hygiene in order to provide a healthy world to our future generations. This habit of hygiene needs to be developed from a younger age. The children need to be taught the importance of both personal hygiene and healthy diet. With these thoughts as the force within, Indraprastha International School hosted an “Online General Knowledge Quiz”, on the topic-Health, Hygiene and Diet for the students of classes VIII and IX on Apr 11, 2020.
The event witnessed enthusiastic participation from students of Indraprastha World School and Indraprastha Global School in the presence of Dr Rajesh Hassija(Director, Indraprastha International School) and Heads of all the branches. The scions of today are adapting well to the nuances of technology to which the success of “Inter school Virtual Events” and regular classes stands witness to. The contested participation led to a tie and the answer to the tie-breaker marked Team International as the winner. The laudable efforts of all the participants have been appreciated by way of E-certificates by the host.
Ms Urmimala Sudhakar , (Addl Principal, Indraprastha International School) thanked and congratulated everyone for their support and participation . The event was conducted successfully and Indraprastha International School once more acknowledges and appreciates the unconditional support of all its stakeholders.
