Hurrah for our young students from Std. V – Radhika Rajwade, Jijau Phatak, Avanee Bagade & Swani Pathak who have made it to the top in the Skimmer Competition (Track Event- Distance with Weight) organized by SAEINDIA AWIM Pune Olympics at SNBP School, Rahatani.
“Our skimmer has been one with a difference..” chirped the girls as they shared their exciting journey to the top of the city level competition. “The beautifully decorated ‘Prakash Vata’, the skimmer designed by the Millennium Team is a noteworthy project as it includes special empathy towards the much needy Adivasi community. Complete with a Kitchen, School, Hospital and a toilet on board, the little skimmer (paper model) proves to be an eco-friendly (fuel free) mode of transport which could also provide a source of income for the Adivasis”they explained in detail.
Adding to the charm of our team, was the well written and effectively presented skit with the conversation between an Adivasi and the NGO representatives.Sporting the Adivasi headband and a complimenting tone, Jijau expressed concern over the lack of medical, educational facilities to which Radhika and Avanee(NGO Representatives) promptly replied by presenting the skimmer –held by Swani- as the complete solution to resolve multiple requirements- and you could clearly see why these clear voices lined with great dramatics could steal the hearts of all!
The lovely young faces of our students overflowing with joy and excitement just about matched their feelings as they expressed their parents’ joy and the appreciation they got after their success. All but Avani spoke enthusiastically about the special treat they received or were promised – and what she said belied her young age- “I refused any kind of treat my parents offered to me” she said, “The AWIM Trophy in itself was my greatest gift!”
These young champs along with the guidance of their teachers – Ms. Jyotsna, Ms.Rutuja, Ms. Aditi & Ms. Sneha, were able to make a mark at this City level competition as well as pave their way to the National level Competition to be held at Chandigarh in this month.
Not to mention, our sponsor company `John Deere’, who have not only provided the necessary kits to the school but their engineers have also volunteered to guide the students for the competition.
So, here’s wishing our young champs good luck and greater success at the National level competitions to be held soon!!
