Crowning Glory: Achievements of Students

Achievements of Students

The pandemic – Covid–19 – encapsulated the world. It didn't make any distinction between the rich and the poor, the underdeveloped and developed nations, the civilized and not so civilized, the educated and uneducated all ran for the cover of plastic. The mobile phone – a taboo so far for children – became a necessity for them, but the Patricians like the Arctic Terns soared high. These hurdles of a virtual existence were scaled with ease and they stood among the best in both Intra and Inter School competitions. A sign that obstacles are there to conquer, mountains are there to surmount and competitions are avenues to be trampled on.
