tGELF – National Level Debate

tGELF is an organisation that creates platforms for students to hone their leadership skills. Under their auspices, a group of 7 class X students from Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam got the opportunity to participate in Harmony 2012 at Gurgoan on 16th and 17th November 2013.

The street play and the debate team qualified in the regional round held in Chennai and moved on to the national level. At the national level there were over 250 students participating in various competitions.

The debate team consisting of Radhika and Arvind made us proud by coming in as the II runner up. It was heart-warming to see the street play group stand their ground despite stiff competitions.

On the whole the trip happened to be a package deal of both fun and learning for the students, the teacher and the school.  The “take home” from the whole experience was surely fruitful and it also left us in no doubt about the talent pool at our home base.

Along the same lines, Akshay Sivakumar and P.C.Siddarth, our student leaders, have been qualified to participate in a high profile symposium in Doha Qatar in December. They are eagerly looking forward to this journey.
