Foundation Week 2017

Our school foundation day is the 15th October and it is celebrated differently every year. This year we spent a whole week enjoying a range of activities and competitions.

On Monday, some of the students helped to clean the school while others were involved in preparing some lovely stage decorations. Cleanliness is especially important these days since we are trying to work towards a Clean School Award (Swachh Vidyalaya Puraskar).

On Tuesday morning, we had the school’s first ever debate competition final. Teams from the yellow and green houses did very well and ultimately the green house won, arguing that social media does more harm than good. In the afternoon, Miss Olivia and Miss Jenny led the elocution competition for the second time. We heard excellent poetry recitations from students of Class IV to Class IX with three sets of winners.

On Wednesday, we held a spectacular dance competition in which ten groups displayed their talents and worthy winners were selected by the judges. Meanwhile, everyone had come in traditional cultural dress, so the youngest classes spent the day learning Mizo dances outside. The day ended with an informal ‘lampui’ in the hall.

The kids, including all the hostellers, went home to enjoy an extended weekend break including the Diwali holiday on Thursday. On the Friday, however, the staff and workers met together at Liandova Picnic Spot for a day of recreation and fellowship.

It has been a diverse and enjoyable week for all. Well done to all the participants who put in hours of preparation, as well as the teachers who helped to make it all happen. We expect great things in the year to come!

A Sunday of Bible Trivia

Sundays at the hostel usually consist of an early morning Bible study with Miss Joanna, a mid-morning service with the Principal, Sunday school with the wardens and an afternoon fellowship with special items led by the hostellers.

Today, all these seemed to unexpectedly converge into a Bible trivia fest! In the morning Bible study, the boys received their prize for collecting the most points for Bible knowledge over the past series of weeks. In Sunday School, prizes were also distributed following their Bible memory exam held last month. In the afternoon fellowship, our warden Sir Jehova led a very good Bible quiz. The ‘Mark’ group were the winners and they will receive their prizes next week.

KGI Teacher Miss Jenny leads Team India at World Cosplay Summit in Japan

Jenny Lalawmpuii (Miss Jenny) is our enthusiastic KGI teacher, but is also one of the most prominent Cosplay participants in Mizoram, stemming from several years she previously spent living in Japan. Some of our youngest students have even gained an appreciation for Japanese children’s songs and basic Japanese phrases.

Following India’s main Cosplay event, Fantasy Realm 2016 held in Aizawl, Miss Jenny was invited to lead ‘Team India’ to Japan to participate in the World Cosplay Summit 2017 in Nagoya. The team consisted of a youthful pair of India’s best Cosplay artists from Arunachal Pradesh.

In addition to this prestigious event, the team were guided to participate in a range of other events, exhibitions and seminar presentations. We congratulate the team on their successful trip and are proud of Miss Jenny for her achievements.

Energy Club Poster Competition

Last week the Energy Club at Divine Intervention School, led by Miss Chhanpuii, ran a poster competition. The handiwork of the Class IX students can be seen displayed on the main steps of the school. This morning the winner was announced to be C. Lalthlansanga, who was awarded a prize during the morning devotion.

The coming week will be busy for all the participants as they will be completing their energy audits for their own localities and submitting them to the Club. They have also been taking part in an inter-school essay-writing competition. We are very proud of the club and their hard work.

Green House wins Quiz Competition 2017

The annual DIS Quiz Competition was held on 15th February 2017. It was hosted by Miss Tetei and Sir LSa (Maths teachers) and adjudicated by Miss Manuni (English teacher) and Miss Chhanpuii (Maths teacher). Thanks to the hard work of Sir Hlutea (Physics teacher), the questions were presented in a captivating interactive format which recreated the atmosphere of a television game show.

Two participants each drawn from Class VI and above represented their respective houses in the first two rounds, which included multiple choice questions on a wide range of subjects including geography, history and English grammar. The rest of the students also got a chance to participate throughout the competition. The selection of finalists came down to several tie-breakers, due to the impressively high standard of the participants.

The final four teams for the final round were yellow, green and two red teams, since blue had been eliminated in the earlier rounds. The final results were as follow:

  1. Green house
  2. Red house
  3. Red house
  4. Yellow house

Congratulations to everyone involved. Let’s hope the competition serves to spark everyone’s minds as they prepare for their final exams next week.
