Seth M.R. Jaipuria’s Middle School Festival – Meraki was organized on a virtual platform from 17th February to 27th February. There were a total of 15 participating schools from different cities such as Barabanki, Bahraich, Barwani, Hardoi, Indore, Lucknow, Rasra and Sitapur. Grade 5 and 6 students made up the group Power Rangers whereas Grade 7 and 8 students made up the group Avengers.
Meraki is a Greek term meaning ‘ the essence of yourself that is put into your work’. With this in mind, the entire fest was designed to act as a catalyst to boost the participant’s creativity and unleash their imagination.
The fest was divided in four domains with the following sub-events:
· Scimatica: A quiz based on science and math with different rounds such as Identify Me, Mental Maths, Hall of Fame, Phenomenally Correct, Visual Round, Chemical Locha and Rapid Fire round.
· Pen A Marvel: Weave – a – tale (writing & narration of stories), Versatile with Verses (writing & recitation of poetry), Weave – a-chat (writing & dialogue delivery).
· Syntax Clan: Powertech(power-point presentation), TruJoy Gaming (game design), WebTek (website designing) and Brain over Brawn (video – editing).
· Shabd Sarang: Meri Awaaz Suno (dubbing), Dastangoi (tell a tale) and Tinka Tinka Needh (poetry-writing).
The closing ceremony began with an instrumental song played by the school orchestra followed by event-wise experience of the judges and the participants. A few notable entries from various events were showcased and category-wise results were announced. Addressing the virtual gathering, our Vice-chairperson Mrs. Anjali Jaipuria highly appreciated the entire fest and the hard work put in by each and every participant, coordinator and teacher. Our Principal, Mrs. Promini Chopra, too, was all praises for team Meraki.
