“Managed to get rid of a lot of waste and generate innovative things too. ” – Shreya & Shuba
Our aim was, in fact, to make students; the future of our country realize that scrap can be used well and must be used well. It was all done in the spirit of environment day. We gave each of the teams the choice of any 6 out of a wide variety of materials. We had juice boxes, newspapers, paper cups, paper plates, string and straws. Using, glue and scissors, the participants had to create something innovative. They had to bring out a theme in their models.
“It stimulates our creative side. ” – Tania
The participation for the event was very high and the event was well managed and well organized, as most participants noted. It was a challenge to produce something given the limited material available, however most submissions were unique. Each team thought differently and the outcomes were quite extraordinary to look at.
“It is very novel. There are so many different things going on, so many different ideas.” – Lizzie and Hannah (Judges)
The event will also be conducted for the first years after their arrival. We wish to see their unique styles and intriguing methods of craftsmanship. The results will be declared after the juniors have taken part. We look forward to the event and hope to receive maximum participation.
