We heartily congratulate these budding peacemakers. Rakeysh hailed the school flag; Pari and Bianca spoke brilliantly and most appropriately against child labour while representing Germany. Bianca’s acceptance of the challenge from Brazil propelled her to emerge with a defining statement ‘Children are meant for learning not for earning money.’ They spoke what they have been ingrained with their practices and living with the concept, ‘learning to love to learn’. Andrew spoke about the causes of civil war while Rakeysh contributed towards framing of the resolution for the committee. Chhanv and Avijit also made an equally important impact with their views.
Overall, they walked and talked what they have been living every day philosophy of learning would automatically make you a great earner, but that must not, like the rest of the world, be the goal of our children. They displayed that they have the power to emerge as the ‘Great Leaders and Managers of The World’
It was an extremely enriching experience for our students. They got to make new friends and share ideas under one canvas and concept of ‘Human Commonality’.
