Neera ma’am shares some interesting scoop on the latest in the Prize department
A fine day for working, busy schedule, everyone running about
towards their practices and the non-participants having fun in the classes, chatting away to glory,
I approached the secretive prizes department for an interview, who could be seen working intently in the shadows. This is how it went:
Q. How many people are getting the prizes?
Ans. The number of students from middle school that are being felicitated is still being finalized but the number is close to 70.
Q. What are the prizes like?
Ans. The prizes are mostly books, wonderful books that are handpicked by Anita ma’am herself. Through these prizes we hope to inculcate the love of reading in our students.
Q. Any prize that is your favorite and you would have wanted as a kid?
Ans. All the prizes are tempting and very very nice. To be felicitated in front of so many people is a prize in itself but if I would have wanted a prize, it would surely be “Reader Of The Year”.
Q. Is it difficult to keep the prizes a secret?
Ans. Yes, at times children get impatient and want to know if they are getting a prize, and we just have to tell them to wait until the list is made official which really disappoints them.
Q. How many people are helping you?
Ans. We have a team of 5 children, and of course Shruti ma’am and myself( Neera ma,am ) are there as well.
Q. And now the burning question, when will the list be made OFFICIAL???
Ans. I’ll keep that open. It should be out next week or the week after.
So all middle schoolers, take a chill pill because you have a very good chance of being one of the felicitated 220. My advice: you should stop bugging the prize team because if they get irritated they might cut your name off the list!!! STAY TUNED!
