International Recognition for Poorvaja 

S. Poorvaja of grade XI who was part of the team selected to represent India in the International Teenager Design and Art Contest in Busan, South Korea, won a consolation prize in the event.

Here is what she has to say about her experience:

Towards the beginning of this year I signed up for the InKo international art competition through the school, as it seemed like a good opportunity to visit South Korea and learn about their culture, I decided to give it a shot. Our topic was ‘Man and Nature’ and I painted a piece which described how every man is benefited from nature and is a part of it. Yet, we humans decide to take advantage of the gifts of mother nature instead of cherishing and taking care of it. I believe that it’s our turn to give back to mother nature and be grateful for all she has done for us.

I sent in two entries and won the silver medal. The competition was held between Korea, India and Japan. My sponsored 5 day trip to Busan gave me an opportunity to visit various museums and art galleries, Buddhist temples and enjoy the native Korean food. Besides dressing up in native Korean attire, we also learnt a little bit of Korean to communicate with our friends in Korea. Though I could win only a consolation prize, the memories created during my trip to Korea would stay with me for years to come.
