TIHS QUALIFIES FOR GLOBAL ROUND IN WORLD SCHOLAR’S CUP 2016.
The students from The Indian Heights School added another feather in the cap when they bagged 11 Gold Medals and 18 Silver Medals in World Scholar’s Cup 2016, Dwarka Round. The event was conducted for two days Oct20 and Oct 21,2016 by the host school Maxfort School, Dwarka.The World Scholar's Cup (occasionally abbreviated as WSC) is an international team academic program with students participating from over 50 countries. The competition attracts what it calls "a global community of future scholars and leaders", and promotes its participants to "discover strengths and skills that they never knew they had." Despite technically being a competition, The World Scholar's Cup focuses far more on bringing students from different cultures together to discuss issues and ideas relevant to today and the future.
Our students participated at both Junior and Senior level and participated in each of the four main events: the Scholar's Challenge, Collaborative Writing, The Team Debate, and the Scholar's Bowl. The curriculum had six subjects with questions that require critical thinking skills as well as their basic knowledge to come to a conclusion rather than focusing on memorization namely Science,Literature, Art and Music,Special Area,History and Social Studies.The students at both the levels displayed an overwhelming response as they worked together as a team and clinched medals in different categories.
