Art is the finest form of human expression where creativity cannot be locked down. Virtual competitions in Art, Singing and Sudoku were conducted for the teachers of Chennai Public School, Thirumazhisai on May 25, 2020. It was the first of its kind to be held outside the campus.
The Art and Sudoku competitions were held live in the presence of the jury and the other members of the staff. The members of the jury of the art competition were intrigued by “the perspectives” portrayed by teachers in presenting the topics – ‘Awareness on Corona’ (in rangoli form) and ‘The Learning I carry during COVID-19 Lockdown’. The mediums came alive with vibrant colours and food for thoughts.
As for singing, a song in any language was to be video recorded for two minutes and forwarded to the jury the previous day, following the criteria.The soloist posed a tough challenge for the jury with songs from different genres. With appealing visuals and background music, they sang their hearts out, an experience that was truly jaw dropping.
The fine art of Sudoku, the Japanese number grid that chews the pencil ends to shreds, saw some live action akin to a chess match by Grandmasters. Keenly watched by the judges, the participants were marked for accuracy and speed.
The participants, the winners and the judges of the various categories were congratulated and appreciated by our Principal, Ms Chitrakala Ramachandran. She also had a word of praise for the Vice Principal, Ms Indira Priaarshini, for planning and coordinating the events meticulously. It was truly a wonderful experience for the teachers.
