Online Inter-school Competition by SVIS- Quarantech
In the time of an ongoing global pandemic, SVIS (Dwarka Sec 18) School decided to conduct an online interschool competition for various schools. They named it ‘QUARANTECH’. A tech-related competition for the people stuck in quarantine.
Many events took place but I was particularly interested in gaming. I have always loved playing the game Krunker.io and I believe I play it well. So, the moment I got to know that there will be a competition on gaming, I took no time to volunteer to participate. My event started around 11:00 AM and ended around 03:30 PM and for those four and a half hours I was completely glued to my computer screen. I was so excited about the event that I did not even bother having my lunch on the break time.
The first two rounds were easy and I was easily able to reach the third and the final round. In my last match, I faced tough competition and played an intense, nerve-racking match with my opponents. After a long and eventful day, I was finally able to see my name on the winner’s list. I had secured the second position for my school and I feel extremely proud of my achievement. I appreciate that gaming is now being treated as a sport and is receiving the respect it deserves.

They topped the Overall Spanish Olympiad.
This year again, three students will compete at the Second Level. There will be a tie-breaker between Namit Sethi and Kaneesha Kumar.

In fact, many students had outscored the competitors from other schools in Level 1 but could not compete at Level 2 as the policy is of only School Toppers to compete.

Green Olympiad at School
"No one is too small to make a difference. "
The ultimate test of man's conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard by us. The school organised a Green Olympiad which is an annual environment education examination conducted by the Energy and Resources Institute. It is an endeavour to promote environmental stewardship at the school level. Students participated with a lot of zeal thereby spreading the message that every single step makes a huge impact in the creation of a world where the environment would not need any protection and the earth would be a paradise to live in.
We congratulate our merit holders, their parents and mentors and wish them all the best for all future endeavours.
