Through A Divine Play ~ An Artist Is Created, Born To Invent A New Dimension!
This statement is so true for our champion Ira Prabhudessai of Victorious Kidss Educares. She is one such artist, a bright energetic student, from MYP 3C, who has scored an A Grade in the recently held Intermediate Drawing Exam 2019 by the Directorate of Art, Government of Maharashtra. This year more than 2.5 lakh students, says proud parent Anand & Vaishali Prabhudesai, across all boards and schools in Maharashtra, appeared for the Intermediate and Elementary exams held in November 2019. Ira had to appear for 4 papers, each of 3-hour duration, spread across 2 consecutive days. The subjects were as follows:
1) Still Life
2) Memory Drawing
4) Geometry & Lettering
She had appeared for the Elementary Level Exam in 2018 and had secured a B grade, something which she refused to and did not accept. As a result of all the efforts that she took. She dreamt of success and were inspired by her parents and school ambience to place her one hundred percent. VKE President Shri Robbin Ghosh says, “At Victorious Kidss Educares, as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World school, encourages and provides, amongst others, ‘Visual Art’ as a strong subject for children to major and take up further specialization through Graduation, Masters and may be further studies in focusing and gaining expertise. These children are guided by Internationally recognized and highly qualified IB Examiners, trainers, guides from within the school ~ who exposes them to International Painter’s Exhibitions and Contests, where top painters of the world visit to display their visual artwork and interact with the students!
So, Here Is Ira ~ Another Giant Is in The Making for The World to Recognize? We Are Proud of Her
‘Do Not Give Up Attitude, Tenacity & Perseverance!
So, this time Ira geared herself up even stronger for the challenges and went all out practicing a minimum of 5 drawings per day ~ working nine (9) to ten )10) hours ~ for the last 15 days before the examination. Her hard work and perseverance were well supported by her Coordinators, homeroom and subject teachers by ensuring she covered up her studies for the one week of preparatory leave that she had taken for this exam. Apart from this, her drawings were amongst the 300 best drawings from Pune which were selected for the International Art Exchange Program under the ROTARY ART OLYMPIAD held in 2018-19. The event attracted over 30000 entries from across India, US, England and Argentina.
Ira has been a VKE student, since her early childhood. Over the last twelve (12) years now, Ira has proven herself time and again. She has represented the school in several other events too. Amongst a few others, she has ~ on two occasions ~ secured the 2nd place in Vedic Math at National Level ~ in Abacus & Vedic Math Championships (2017 & 2019). These were on two separate challenges.
Congratulations proud parents, we wish Ira all the best for her future endeavors in school years and her future career. May she bring laurels to her Nation, State, Family and School.
