The celebration was made exciting with an array of competitions like Rubik’s Cube Competition, Maths Quiz and Puzzles and Chess Board Puzzle. The students of middle level to senior were competing for the top spot with their reflex action and quick solution to the questions. With an objective of creating awareness about the importance of Mathematics in day to day life situations and also to create an interest in the students to study Mathematics, a compelling and thought provoking skit was put up by the students of Class 7.
A gripping and engrossing session on Origami, the magic of turning a piece of paper into a toy or a pretty decoration was taken by Miss. JananiSrinivasan, Miss MuthuValliammai and Miss.
