The inter-house middle school Global Perspectives Quiz took place on August 21, 2019 at EPS. This year marks the inaugural year for the middle year GP integration. The very idea conceived behind the competition was to inculcate the critical thinking among students and to fan their organic curiosity. The inter-house tag to any event always elevates the stakes. Anticipations, commitments, passions, competition ans above all the unwinding spirit to win. The intensity before the event was unlike any other- the stage was set, the road to the triumph went through right and wrong answers. The team which scored the highest points at the end of the 3 rounds will be declared the winner … it wasn’t that simple!
The students were not only required to be just correct but quick, calculated and prompt as well. As the quiz reached its penultimate stage the path got narrower and filled with more hurdles. Till the very end it was very bleak to predict or to establish the winner; edge of the seat holding of the breaths- it was scary silence all around. The final result did come out, the efforts of almost every house were fulfilling. To put that into perspective the first and the third positions were determined by the difference of only ten points, the second position found it’s way between the latter and former by the thin margin of 5 marks. The Red ( Hazrat Ali r.a house) finally took the glory home followed by Blue (Hazrat Uthman r.a house) and Green (Hazrat Abu Bakr r.a House) respectively.
