CBSE Heritage India Quiz
Our heritage and ideals –our code and standards –the things we live by and teach our children–are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.Keeping this in view, our school organized and hosted the ‘ CBSE Heritage India Quiz’ on the 23rd of January 2018.
The Central Board of Secondary Education has conceptualized this idea with the aim to promote interest and desire among students to learn and appreciate the history , the tourism and share the vast cultural heritage of our country.Heritage India for schools is a platform wherein young children will realize and understand that in this ever changing world of globalization, people still take pride in their cultural heritage.Around fifty schools participated in this mega event .
The Quiz Master presided over the proceedings of the quiz which was conducted in three phases. A video presentation showcased the rich cultural background and history of the ancient city of Varanasi whose fame has in many ways overpowered the mundane urban histories.
The Chief Guest Dr. Subhash Yadav addressed the gathering and appreciated the effort and enthusiasm of the young participants .In his address he said that it is not important to reach the zenith of success-what is important is to achieve that success taking everyone together.
The glory of an achievement lies in the fact how one worked as a team in the true spirit of sportsmanship. Dr.Subhash gave examples of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norway who together realized their dream of making it to the Everest.
The results were announced and prizes were given away to the winners amidst a thunderous applause. This memorable moment was captured in a group photography at the end of the programme. The 23 rd of January 2018 shall be earmarked in the pages of DPS Varanasi as a momentous day for years to come. The silent national anthem by the Dipsites –as a tribute to God’s chosen children brought an endto the event on a solemn note.
