The cultural week, a series of interschool competitions and activities organized every year by Carmel Convent School, New Delhi was held this year from 20th July to the 24th in the school campus. The fest, aptly titled Iridescence, showcased a wondrous spectrum of youthful skill and talent.
The fest was inaugurated on the 20th by the principal, Sr.Joviana, the vice-principal Sr.Tina Maria and Sr.Lisetta and marked the beginning of a wonderful and successful week. The many contests organized were attended by various schools from across the city including St.Columba?s, Modern School (Barakhamba and Vasant Vihar), Army Public School and Vasant Valley School. The response was commendable, and the contestants participated with a spirit of camaraderie and bonhomie.
Competitions were held in the fields of dance, debate, art, Social sciences, psychology, computers, music and science among others. The newly introduced science event called ?The Amazing Race?, which involved teams of two, performing tasks and deciphering scientific clues to clinch the prize, was a huge success. The competition was close and fast pace and adrenaline pumped activities added to the excitement! The ?Capture the Market? event which involved teams of four setting up their own food stalls to make profit was a huge success. The food was delicious and the competition keen.
The participating schools found the experience of the week deeply enriching and looked towards taking part in the coming years. They further said that showcasing their talent before such an enthusiastic and admiring crowd was a pleasure in itself!
The host school was also very pleased with the success of this fest. While every Cultural Week is memorable, this one has found itself a special place. The week, thus, ended on a memorable note, leaving behind sentiment, fulfillment, achievement, oneness and nostalgia.
The spirit of friendly competition glowed bright as excellent students showcased exceptional talent and zeal and put together a week that shone with the iridescent brilliance of the Sun.
