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.
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.
Today we enjoyed the final of the DIS Solo Competition 2017. This has been organised by Sir LSa and both Miss Manunis.

The winners will get a chance to sing in Vanapa Hall on the school Foundation Day celebration later this year.

We welcomed back the passed-out students yesterday on Thursday, 12th May, for their graduation ceremony. We are so proud of their success, which included a high proportion of distinction marks than ever before. Prizes and certificates were awarded to all the students, not only for their recent HSLC results but also for their extra-curricular achievements.
The ceremony was hosted by Miss Chhanpuii, Miss Babie and Sir LS-a, with speeches given by the Principal and the highest-scoring student, Saithangliana. It was followed by light refreshments in the Principal’s residence.
We are very proud to have established an Energy Club at Divine Intervention School in 2016, headed up by Miss Chhanpuii. More details can be found at this page. The Class IX (now Class X) members worked hard conducting audits in their local areas and taking part in awareness campaigns. They were even very successful at the state level, winning several awards in the year 2016-2017. Thanks to Miss Chhanpuii and all the students who took part:
Individual Prize: Lalruattluanga and Lily Lalenkawli Sailo won Consolation Prizes in the Essay Writing competition and received cash of Rs.1000 and a citation.
Club Prize: In the overall state-level competition, the Club won 8th position / Consolation with a cash Prize of Rs 2000 and a citation.
After a premature rainy season, the sun finally came out in time for the first sports days here at Divine Intervention School. On the 27th and 28th April most of the classes headed to the Luangmual Field to play all kinds of sports representing their house colours. Meanwhile, on Thursday morning, the primary classes (KG I to Class IV) stayed at the school and played outdoor games.
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.
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:
- Green house
- Red house
- Red house
- 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.
On Friday, 2nd February, DIS passed a landmark moment by holding our first ever elocution competition. Under the dedicated leadership of Miss Olivia (Class I and Spoken English teacher) and Miss Jenny (KG I and English teacher), two students each from Class IV to Class IX took to the stage to recite poems in front of the rest of the school students and staff.
Class IV and Class V competed against each other with the poem Leisure by WH Davies. Class VI and Class VII prepared the poem Home they brought her warrior dead by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Class VIII and Class IX prepared O Captain! My Captain! by Walt Whitman. Their recitations were judged on a wide range of criteria from enunciation to modulation of voice by a panel composed of Miss Tpi (Class III teacher), Dr Joanna (English and Music teacher) and Miss Tetei (Maths teacher).
All the participants did exceptionally well, and the results were as follow:
