The wait was finally over for the scholars. The most sought-after premier academic tournament of World Scholar's Cup (WSC) has been unifying an international community of future scholars and leaders in one platform. Elpro International School had the privilege of hosting the second edition of WSC on the 14th and 15th of December for the regional round of Pune.
This year WSC witnessed a whopping 220 number of students participating from 7 schools in Mumbai and Pune, making the event a huge success. The event commenced with a glorious beginning that encouraged students to participate in interdisciplinary and team-oriented learning. Scholars explored the theme of - World on the Margins through the six different subjects of Literature, Science, History, Social Studies, Art & Music and a Special Area. The scholars got the opportunity to discover new strengths and practice new skills through the combination of four key challenging rounds of Scholar's Bowl, Scholar's Challenge, Collaborative Writing and Team Debate.
All the four rounds were exciting, challenging and bringing the best out of the students. The second edition of WSC was indeed a celebration of learning. More than 20 teams have qualified for the Global Rounds. Mr Chauncey and Mr Logan from the WSC team congratulated the proud scholars and said, "We have seen an overwhelming response from the scholars of Pune and had a great time at Elpro International School. The competition was indeed fun and challenging. The highlight was the Scholar's show which saw many scholars perform some really interesting acts. We thank Elpro International for being such wonderful hosts."
Principal, Dr. Amrita Vohra, on the occasion appreciated the enthusiasm of the students. She spoke to the Times team and said, "The learning experience gained from WSC will instil a variety of skillsets that are essential in today's global world. To be tomorrow's leaders of the global world; WSC is your opportunity to groom yourselves as today's learners."
