Nov 13, 2019
JAMMU: G D Goenka Public School, governed by Om Prakash Bansal Charitable Trust held an inter house Quiz Competition on the life of Swami Vivekananda along with the saints present from Ram Krishna Mission.
There were three rounds in which questions hailing from the whole life of Swami Vivekanand were put up. Every round had a set of four questions based on his personal life, teachings and preachings which would help one and all pave a strong and valued path in their respective lives.
All the four teams comprised of four students who were so fast and adept in answering the questions with poise and grit. It was a tough competition as all the houses outshone each other as they had learned, "You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul."
Teresa house won first position by securing the maximum marks, the second position was bagged by Radhakrishnan house and the third place was bagged by Tagore house.
All the children were beaming bright when they were appreciated by the organizers for having done so commendably well. The program started with the sermon by Brother Gautam Maharaj who said he was transported to his student life, looking at the children. He gave the children the mantra of- "Arise! Awake! and stop not until the goal is reached."
The Principal appreciated the children for their brilliant performance and also told all present to take away values from the life of Swami ji. He apprised the students that participation is more important than winning.
