According to the school’s statement on social media, while this may be the school’s first time to participate, the World Scholar’s Cup had proven the prowess of their student’s young mind when pitted at the international stage.

“The students had an opportunity to exhibit their critical thinking skills through perceptive and decisive arguments in 6 different areas on various topics which include, Special Area – Unsolved Mysteries, History – Neglected Histories, Social Studies – On the Edge of Society, Science – Enabling Technologies, Art & Music – Louder than Words, Literature – Voices from the Margins. They also engaged in collaborative writing, with topics ranging from exploring creative scenarios to making persuasive arguments,” said the school in a statement.

The 11 scholars have earlier this year qualified at a 2019 Global round held in Beijing, China.
