Study tips for Kannada were shared with the students while guiding them on how to maximise their efforts for a successful result.

The murder mystery event was organised with some inventive skills, to delve out the logical reasoning as well as the intuition of our detective friends.
The event consisted of 3 rounds, the first round was a pen and paper round followed by two murder plots. The participants
who qualified through the pen and paper round were introduced to the murder plot in which some questions related to the autopsy of the victim had to be answered. This round was restricted to a fixed frame of time. Based upon the answers given, the participants were qualified to the next round of the event. The third round was the final murder plot in which the participants were required to identify the murderer and write down the murder plot accurately. The best plot was titled as the winner.
The event had over 42 teams. Participants who could unleash their detective skills with utmost calibre were categorised as winners.
The winners of the event were-
1st place-Mount Carmel
Incognito, a science treasure hunt event that aimed at testing the dexterity and scientific intellect of the participants. The event was organized on 6th September,2019 on the occasion of the mega CJC Fest “MAGNACHRISTA”.The event comprised of three rounds in total.
The first round had two divisions.To begin with we had the pen to paper round for 30 minutes,which required the participants to bring together their agility at solving fifteen puzzling questions. The qualified 20 teams moved onto the next segment of the round. The Taboo round needed the participants to bring their vocabulary into action.They were expected to explain a given word to their teammates,restricting them the use of a few particular words and actions.
The second round was an exciting modification to Monopoly-the board game. The ten qualified teams come together to play a game of Monopoly.The unusual twist here was that every table the team landed upon, had a set of envelopes to be brought. Each envelope had two tasks to be performed by each team,and hence only on the completion of these tasks were they allowed to continue their game. Each envelope had one Pictionary question and one minute to win it task to complete. The first six teams to complete their game were qualified for the final round.
The final round was a classic treasure hunt, where the participants had to face perplexing obstacles and challenges in their hunt for victory. Six locations, six different road maps and each team accompanied by a volunteer.The clues to each location had to be solved with a quick sense of mind. After a nail biting race to the victory, we had SJBHS declare themselves as winners of the event.
The event got the participants to take back with them an experience. An experience at a classic treasure hunt. The event not only enhanced one’s quick wittedness but was also concluded a great success.

The motive of magnachrista was to instill the spirit of confidence, healthy competition and harmony amongst the participants and unravel was the perfect example. It’s an event which assesses participants on their logical reasoning and capability to decrypt ciphers. With every succeeding level the intricacy of the event increases which highlights the event architects’ selfless efforts.
In the first round, the participants had to solve four ciphers and three logical questions after which they had to guess the names of five movies through pictionary.
Only six teams made it through to the triathlon where they had three sets of tasks and ciphers which on completion would give them three words namely infrared light, cancer and astronomy.The participants had to formulate a theory with these words and the team which came up with the most accurate theory with respect to the original one, won the event.
The team of four was divided into two.
Two of them had to perform the tasks and two of them had to decrypt the ciphers.
The participants had to decrypt a miscellany of ciphers including vigenere cipher, rail fence, dorabell and book ciphers.
They had to perform an assortment of tasks which on completion would enlighten them about the theory. The formulation of the theory by the participants marks the cessation of the event. The team which completed this tedious and exciting process in the least amount of time and arose with the most accurate theory won unravel.
These are the champions of unravel

Roses are red,
Violets are blue
Aliens are here for you’
In a desperate fight against time and space, participants from different schools and colleges from Bangalore crossed their fingers as there was a thin white line between humanity, life and total annihilation. The Purge was a Sci-Fi game of ‘Hide and Seek’ but against the aliens. The event embraced three absorbing rounds where participants were members of NASA and had to save humanity from the extraterrestrials using clues and their wit.
In the first round, participants had to crack 8 puzzles to find the planet’s name – KRYPTON 5364 . The second round was ‘Plan-It’ where they had to plot their way to KRYPTON-5364 using science as the base. In the last round, members were captured in the foriegn planet . They had to find their way out of the planet to save humanity using all the traces and clues left behind by the previously incarcerated.
The Purge tested participants’ intelligence and logics with a hint Science and Fiction. It was indeed an unforgettable and phenomenal experience!

Junk art or better known as three dimensional art made from discarded material such as metal, glass or wood etc is an effective method for reducing generated waste. Minimalism is an extreme form of abstract art developed in the USA in the 1960s. Artists use recycled or reused objects to make attractive pieces of contemporary art and literally turning everyday trash into something valuable.
Eco club gives an opportunity to show how creativity can make a change in depleting environment. The very recognition and understanding of how things can be recycled, reused and redesigned is beneficial to the environment in its own benign way.To practice this awareness, nearly 10 groups assembled in the Biology lab on 13th of September, to depict how unwanted things can, by a little alteration,be useful. The event witnessed the creation of handbags, stools, wall hangers, room decorations, and all simple but pleasant things that took form from discarded paper, jeans, bowls, buckets and other usually ignored and discarded items. The hidden potential for beauty in even the most rudimentary of things and the ability to make effective use of unwanted things was the knowledge and affirmation, the Eco club was and still strives to impart. The first place winner was a meticulously made table accessory that could hold pens, staplers, sticky notes and other stationary all while adding a little style to the workplace. The Eco club believes that its efforts impacted at least a few lives and hence congratulates all its participants.
