Spring Daleans win laurels in Wild Wisdom Quiz 2017
Selected for nationals
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 Junior Level and Senior Level teams of Spring Dale Senior School did their institution proud by bagging the first positions in the Wild Wisdom Quiz held at Millennium School, Amritsar.
The Spring Daleans also bagged the first prize in poster making and the middle school team of Spring Dales has been selected for the nationals to be held at Delhi in October. Ms Neeru Issar, a teacher at Spring Dales, was conferred the Best Coordinator Award for guiding students in the project entailing recognition of trees of the Ram Bagh (Company Gardens) in collaboration with the WWF.
The Spring Daleans competed with a total of 25 teams from different schools in the city in this event. Giving details, Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that the junior team of the school included Ayaan Dhawan and Bhudish Khanna, of grade V, while Kartik Gaur and Safal Luthra, of grade VIII, were members of the school’s senior team.
“On account of their vast knowledge about wildlife and the issues affecting it, these teams have won the first prize in this event, while our middle school team has been selected for the national level quiz to be held in Delhi in October, on the basis of its outstanding performance in this quiz,” he said. He maintained that it was a matter of pride and honour for the institution that one of its teachers Neeru Issar had been conferred the Best Coordinator Award.
“The school is proud of the achievements of its students and teachers. 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, President, 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.
