Sacred Heart tops annual quiz show

Students of Sacred Heart Convent School won the 13th Quizzotica, an inter-school quiz competition in Jamshedpur’s Rajendra Vidyalaya.

The preliminary round started with 60 children from 20 cradles but only six — Sacred Heart Convent School, DAV Public School, Bistupur; Loyola School, Kerala Samajam Model School, SDSM School of Excellence and Rajendra Vidyalaya reached the final round.

“Quizzing is not just a competition but an exercise for students. The more they participate, the sharper they are. This quiz is our annual event,” said P.B. Sahay, principal of Rajendra Vidyalaya.

The host school invited former student Anand Shekhar, now a BTech student in BITS-Pilani, to host the show. There were five rounds — general quizzing, crossword, buzzer round, clue round and audio visual round. Students of classes VII, VIII and IX participated. Each team had three members.

“Instead of inviting a professional, we thought of inviting our ex student because he too is interested in quizzing. Participants too feel better with a quiz master who is young. Some of the questions were very interesting, especially the crossword, which kept students and the audience guessing,” said Sahay.

Sacred Heart Convent bagged the first position followed by DAV Public School, Bistupur and the hosts.
