As part of the event activity, SCRF organizers had announced a competition for all students visiting the festival. There were educational seminars organsied at the venue. Students could attend a seminar of their choice. They were then expected to submit a report with-in 24 hrs on the seminar and the best report would receive a reward.

She won a certificate and a HP laptop which was given to her in an award ceremony at the Festival. She was also appreciated in the school assembly. The GIIS team would like to congratulate Ila for taking the initiative to participate and do everyone proud.
We would also take this opportunity to urge all parents to encourage their children to come forward and participate in such opportunities. GIIS has always believed in its holistic development model – 9 Gems, that ensures that the child will get the right platform to showcase their potential.
