The activities were unconventional and unique as they elicited collaborative efforts and shared thought processes by participants from different schools while engaging them constructively in developing the four Cs of 21st century ‘Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity’.
The Judge appreciators for the occasion were experts from the field of fashion, theatre, music and photography, each one of whom was a person who had converted his passion into profession.
Principal Seema Jerath while addressing the audience said, ‘This collaborative event breaks the myth that competition is necessary for success; winning by making others lose is not the only way, rather winning over yourself and knowing your strengths is what takes one forward’. She further expressed, ‘the coming times don’t need you to beat or defeat each other, it require you to collaborate and cooperate; work together to create a new and better world’.
‘This event has taught me that each one of us is a winner and I am grateful to DLF for changing my perception of winning’, commented Mr. Happy Ranjit, an NSD graduate and a well-known playwright who was one of the guests at the event.
