Spring Dales wins Best School award, its teachers bag Best Teacher Awards
Senior group qualifies for National Level quiz to be held at Delhi
Displaying their vast knowledge about wildlife, and the wanton human acts that have caused a number of land and marine animal species and birds to either become extinct or endangered, and the need to conserve them, the students of Spring Dale Senior School did their institution proud by bagging the first positions in both the Junior Group (under-12) and Senior Group (under-14) categories in the WWF Zonal Level Quiz held at the Millennium School, Amritsar.
The Senior Group (under-14) of Spring Dales has been selected to participate in the national level quiz to be held at Delhi on the basis of their outstanding performance in the event, which witnessed the participation of teams from at least 30 schools.
Giving details, Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that the Spring Daleans beat contestants from 30 schools to bag the top slot in both Junior and Senior group categories. “On account of their vast knowledge about wildlife and the issues affecting it, the contestants from the Senior Group of the school (under-14), qualified for the national level quiz to be held at Delhi,” he said.
He maintained that not only the students, but also the teachers Ms Neeru Issar and Ms Sakshi Sharma, accompanying the two teams, were conferred Best Teacher Awards on this occasion. “The school is proud of their achievements. Every possible effort is made at ensuring that both its teachers and students get opportunities to advance their knowledge of various important issues and hone their oratorical and presentation skills so as to have an edge above their peers,” he said.
Congratulating the winners, Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that the top slots and awards bagged by the staff and students in this event proved that the school was not just doing its bit to sensitize them and the masses through them towards the cause of animal rights, but was rather doing it in the right manner.
“The laurels won by the teachers and students in this event point at the fact that they are well-versed with the important issues of national and international importance,” they said. They maintained that issues pertaining to wildlife and animal rights were sensitive ones and required public participation and sensitization to be handled effectively.
“There couldn’t be a better way of sensitizing the students than through quizzes of this kind. We pray for the success of our senior group in the forthcoming national level quiz to be held at Delhi,” they added.
