DPSI Makes Ghana Proud

SIXTEEN INTELLIGENT students from Delhi Public School International (DPSI) located in Tema have excelled in this year’s World Scholar’s Cup competition, Ghana Introductory Round.

Per the excellent performance exhibited in the annual competition, they have also qualified to represent Ghana in the Global Round event which will be held on November 12-16 at Yale University in New York, USA where they would rub shoulders with fellow standout students from over 50 other schools across the world.

The event comprised of a full day of team debates, collaborative essay writing, individual quiz, a scholar’s bowl, scholar’s challenge, awards and trophies ceremony.

This year’s event was the biggest compared to previous events which brought students from other schools to challenge themselves, interact and share ideas.

The world scholar’s cup which was founded by Daniel Berdichevsky in 2006 encourages students to be well-rounded learners, analyse literature and art, make correlations between different topics and formulate complex conclusion and opinions as well as help students identify and develop their talents.

Chairman of DPSI, Mukesh Thakwani expressed his excitement to be part of the world scholar’s competition which he said has brought many benefits to the students.

‘The competition enhances the brilliance of the students; make the students have confidence in public speaking without any fear. The school strongly believes in public speaking that is why we have spent a lot of resources in bringing coaches from oversea to give training to DPS students. Our children can speak without any fear,’ he stated.

Though over 50 schools were invited, the DPSI Chairman was disappointed that only a few schools participated in the Ghana Round. He therefore called on schools in the country to take advantage of extra curriculum activities which he said is important for child development.

Shawn Owusu, a student and one of the award winners in the competition expressed his joy to be part of the competition and promised to bring home more medals in the international event next month.

Bhaarat Thakwani, another trophy winner was of the view that the global level participation will give them exposure and opportunity to interact and share experiences with students from different countries while contributing ideas on development issues.

Last year, eighteen brilliant students of DPS International qualified to compete against more than fifty other schools worldwide in the Global Round of the World Scholar’s Cup in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where they won three gold trophies and 27 medals for Ghana.
