The key to holding a logical argument or debate is to allow oneself to understand the other person’s argument no matter how divergent their views may seem”
Shrish Madhan of Chennai Public School, Anna Nagar, who won the Best Delegate Award in Harvard Model Congress Asia is an ardent and seasoned speaker and debater. He represented Iran UNEP and the agenda was Food Security. A true debater should aim high, study his opponents with a clear perception and judge wisely. Perhaps, these may the attributes that set him apart from others and also paved the way for achieving the covetous Best Delegate Award.
Shrish may more accomplishments come your way and more accolades brighten your path. CPS wishes you all the very best in everything you venture.

“Only a fit person, fit family and a fit society will pave way for a great and new India”
The lockdown has indeed urged our dear students for the last five months to stay back at home, confined to their space, pressed with their customary routine works, depriving them of the freedom of movement. In order to break this mundane sedentary lifestyle, We at CPS decided to celebrate “The National Sports Day” coupled with “Fit India Movement” on August 29th 2020. On this esteemed day we fondly commemorated, our legendary sportsperson “The Wizard of Indian Hockey” Major Dhyan Chand on his Birth Anniversary, who surprised the world with his fitness, stamina, and hockey stick, whose tenacity and determination will never go obliterated.To prove the point that fitness is not a destination but should be a way of life, The Physical Department of CPS organized, one hour of fun filled physical activities and games for our 4th and 5th graders. The staff demonstrated easy to follow at home workouts to acquaint them with strength, agility, flexibility and balance. Coronavirus had driven children to include breathing exercises in their daily lifestyle to boost the immune system to fight the pandemic, our instructors left no stones unturned to effectively enhance our children with this “need of hour’ work out. No matter where learning takes place – in the classroom, at home, virtually or on-the-go – it’s important to ensure that children are physically and emotionally feeling energized, supported and ready for what’s ahead . We at CPS look at every possibility to inculcate optimism in our children that would far surpass the uncertainty raised by this unprecedented pandemic

Harvard Model United Nations is a 4-day annual conference where delegates from all over the country, some from around the globe, constellate to discuss, debate, negotiate and generate plans of action for international issues. But this time, the difference was that we convened while existing multitudes of miles away from each other.
Here goes Pranav’s Experience,
“As the delegate of the Kingdom of Bahrain in the Futuristic General Assembly, which was set in 2030, I was tasked with assessing the success of the Sustainable Development Goals, framing a roadmap for the future, and making sure that my nation’s interests were addressed in the resolution at the end of the committee. And I did so, along with the other delegates, all the while chatting, spilling gossip, and debating about marvel and DC and whether pineapple should go on pizza. The main contrast between my previous MUNs and this one, apart from the fact that many of us weren’t even in the same country, was that I tried to take it lightly, I genuinely tried to think of solutions for the global community on my own, I endeavoured to make the debate between delegates fruitful and conclusive, and I got to know both the dais and my other committee members. In the end, I was recognized for my ideas and my contribution to the committee on the whole and was given the “Honourable Delegate” award.
It was a very calm and composed online MUN conference as compared to the chaotic in-person committee meetings. That is one of the advantages of virtual platforms, everyone gets listened to. It was a one of a kind experience, something that I will not forget, but I will continue to take part in such Model United Nation Conferences, whether online or in-person, not only because it enhances my diplomatic and soft-skills or adds to my profile, but also, just because I like it”.
