Loyoleans soar at JRD Tata quiz

If you are a true-blue Jamshedpurean, you ought to know the Tatas well.

Remembering the Bharat Ratna industrialist and civil aviation pioneer a day after his 110th birth anniversary, 266 students from across 35 city schools — who participated in the JRD Tata inter-school quiz contest organised by the steel major at Motilal Nehru Public School on Wednesday — proved they know their Jeh well.

After the prelims, Loyola School, Rajendra Vidyalaya, Sacred Heart Convent School, DAV Public School, Bistupur, St. Mary’s English School and SDSM School of Excellence qualified for the final round with quizmaster Lloyd Saldanha from GreyCaps.

The finals saw six tough rounds, including rapid fire, audio-visual, code-decode direct questions and buzzer round.

The team from Loyola School clinched the title with Rajendra Vidyalaya and Sacred Heart Convent School as runners-up.

The Loyoleans took home a handsome cash prize of Rs 10,000, while the team from Rajendra Vidyalaya got Rs 8,000 and Sacred Heart Convent School Rs 6,000.

The other three finalists also received cash prizes of Rs 2,000 each.

But, more than the cash, top two teams got a lifetime opportunity to take a 20-minute flight over Jamshedpur.

“Obviously, we are happy to win the title and the cash. But, the 20-minute flight was just priceless. We saw our city from a different angle,” said Abhishek Patra, a Class IX student from Loyola School.

Gayatri Singh, wife of East Singhbhum DC Amitabh Kaushal, was the chief guest at the event.
