Day 1 
The 3 day extravaganza started with the cabinet members of the Rotaract club dividing us into colour coordinated groups that are Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravensclaw and Huffelpuff. 

There were numerous speakers who came and spoke to us about several topics, each of them making us think.

Later in the evening, the Cultural Night took place with the theme of western rock and punk.

There was also a Talent hunt organised by them in which our interactors Devyani Singh, Vinayak Kohli, Ananya Acharya and Samiksha Jain participated.

Devyani and Samiksha gave a dance performance which was the most appreciated performance of the evening which earned them the first position in the competition.

Vinayak performed a hip hop and freestyle fusion which was heavily applauded and appreciated. 

Ananya delivered an amazing acapella which was definitely different and something out of the box which was appreciated by the audience.

Later, we all were sent back to our domes so that we could rise early and fresh for all the challenges that were up for us.

Day 2 

The day started early at 6 in the morning as we all were geared up and went for the different sports options available to us. 

 Our students took part in badminton, basketball and zumba.

Later, we were freshened up for another row of sessions. The major concern of that day was to get our knowledge updated about basic sanitation, knowing and discovering ourselves. 

Our interactors, Samiksha and Devyani were appreciated for their performance at the talent hunt.

After the sessions, we were taken to our respective clubs for different activities where Ritika, Pranav, and Vinayak got a chance to try their hand on shooting.

After that, we were ushered back to our domes so that we could get ready in our theme based ensemble. The theme for this cultural night was Indian and ethnic wear. 
The night started with an intense math of tug of war between the four groups in which Ravensclaw won. 

 The games definitely triggered us up, our energy levels were soaring high but they went of the roof when the night was further extended to a DJ night.

Celebrating laungh of WASH @ Nigam Pratibha Kanya School


The school is supported by our parent club, RCDGC. The students visited the school on 7th August, 2015 to celebrate the launching of the 'WASH' (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) Programme in the school with the R.I. President- K. R. Ravindran, District Governor- Rtn. Sudhir Mangla, Members of RCDGC and the students and teachers of the school.

WASH promotes ideas of self hygiene, proper sanitation and awareness regarding water borne diseases.

 The school had been transformed beautifully and was made student friendly with the installation of educational facilities, hygienic washrooms etc. had been done.

The students made and bettered acquaintances by having friendly interactions with others. By being good listeners, they grasped all the knowledge, thoughts and ideas being imparted by the elderly and the eminent personalities.
The ideology of community service was well stressed upon.

It was a great opportunity and amazing experience for the students!
