Teacher`s Day 2014

September 23, 2014

Theacher`s Day has always been a great day for the Brownians which has always brought forth the talent of the students and proved the saying,”School is the best place to discover ones potential.”

The melodious “Guru Vandhna” by Saurav Kumar and the welcome song gave a splendid start to the gala event. “Boss comes to Dinner” by our tiny tots was very entertaining. The video clips displayed by the comperes spoke rightly the value of teacher in our life. The protagonist of the English Drama seeking revenge of this brothers death created a great suspense and thrill amongst the audience. The wordings of the choir “Bande hai hum usske” brought a new hope amongst the audience. For the first time the Brownian stage witnwssed contemporary dance. The second clipping very well proved the prayer “Guru Hi Maat Pita Guru Hi Shakti….”The August gathering also the witnessed the wits of “Mullah Nasar Uddin”.   The hip hoppers made the audience sway along with them. The last clipping illustrated the famous quote “A good teacher a worth hundred gems”. The band presented four outstanding numbers which made the audience rock and roll. The comedy fillers evoked great laughter among the audience and flooded away al the stress of the staff. The last item was the Hindi play which depicted how politicians transform trifles into riots.

With this we bid adieu to Teacher`s Day 2014, with hopes galore for the next year.

T.W. Phillips Inter- School English Debate

September 23, 2014

On the 21st of August, 2014, Atul Sharma of Standard XII participated in the T.W. Phillips Inter- School English Debate at Wynberg – Allen School, Mussoorie. The School stood first in the debate which was a three round competition.

In the first round, Colonel Brown was paired up with Musoorie International School and qualified for round two while speaking against the motion of the House which stated “The present generation is much more honest than those before it.”

Round two was based on the parliamentary format of the debate and Atul was teamed up with Mussorie International School and Guru Nanak Fifth Centenary School (girl). He spoke against the motion of the House which stated this: “Voting should be made compulsory in India” and also handled the rebuttal for his team. Barely managing to scrape through to the third and final round along with Mussoorie International School,
St. George`s College and Unison World School, Atul Sharma won the third round (and debate) while speaking against the motion of the house which stated that “ it should be legal in India for women to carry firearms.”
A question was asked by the judge as well in this round.
Brownian`s proved once again that they are just as deadly at the lectern as they are on the fields!

Inter School Fest

September 23, 2014

On the 1st and 2nd of September, twenty two Brownians went to Wynberg – Allen School, Mussoorie, to participate in their two day Cultural Fest “Capta Caelum- Reach for The Sky.” We took part in twelve events and secured third position in three events, namely, Turncoat (Atul Sharma, XII), Do-A-Duet (Atul Sharma -XII, Tarun Singh -XII, Aman Negi -XI, Jigmat Angchuk -X, Siddharth Gupta- X) and Ad- World (Md. Daniyal -X, Vishwaraj Saini -X, Atul Sharma -XII). The boys really enjoyed the fun- filled two days and are looking forward to similar events in the future with the aspirations of doing even better! All of the participants learnt a lot and got a chance to boost their self-confidence by being able to interact with other schools. This was probably the first time that Colonel Brown took part in a non sport-related event on such a large scale and the experience and memories from events such as these will stay al for long!

Celebrating 67 years of freedom

August 16, 2014

On the 15th of August 2014, Friday, Brownian’s celebrated the 67th year of Indian Independence. The day started at 7:45AM in front of the Proctor`s office where the flag was hoisted at around 8:15 am by the Headmaster, Mr. S.K. Tyagi, followed by the National Anthem song by the School Choir.

The National Anthem was followed by the Patriotic song “ Janani Janmabhoomi” and “ Jai Hind !”

The special assembly lasted a mere 15 minutes but that was more than enough to rouse the patriotic feeling in every Brownian present. Jai Hind!

Aero-Modeling

August 16, 2014

On the 11th death anniversary of our late Principal Mr. Abhai Singh we had an aero modeling workshop for the senior school presented by Mr. Arvind Gupta. . It was quite different but very interesting and added to the boy’s knowledge. We learn a lot about aero planes. We started up with paper planes and went on to radio controlled planes. We were shown many models which were quite incredible. We were told about Wright Brothers, Leonardo Da Vinci etc. We were amazed to know that highest paper plane record for flying was 18 seconds. We also learn a lot about kinetic and potential energy which was strange because Mr. Gupta is a man with a commerce background.

Mr. Gupta has proposed to introduce Aero-modeling as a hobby in school and everyone is extremely excited.

Phoolka Memorial Inter – House English Debate Competition

August 16, 2014

On the Saturday,9 August 2014, Brownian’s argued for their House at the English Debate Competition. The debate was more interesting this time because it was the students who wrote it themselves and the topics had been handed to them just four days before the competition.

Groups I spoke on the topic “Super electronic advancement in all walks of life will lead us to a world devoid of lively relationship and active life.” Best speaker in the Group was Atul Sharma (Std. XII- Headmaster House).

Group II spoke for and against the motion “there is no such thing as equality between sexes.” Best Speaker in Group II went to Harshit Khatri (Std. IX – Principal House).

Group III debate on the motion “Mobile phones are not good for us.” The Best Speaker from this Group went to Akash Swaroop (Std. VII- Headmaster House).

The English Debate Trophy went to the Headmaster House, with Principal House finishing a close second and Bursar House third. The Best Speaker of the English Debate was Atul Sharma (Headmaster House).

The shield for the Debate (Hindi and English combined) went to Headmaster House, Principal House second and Bursar House stood third. The best speaker of the Hindi and English debate combined went to Atul Sharma. (Headmaster House)

The thrill of the competition was unbeatable and it is moments like these that Brownian’s always strive to recreate . We will be looking forward to many more similar , if not better, debates in the future.

Spicmacay

August 16, 2014

On 6th August, 2014 all the Brownians were overwhelmed by the exciting programme of spic macay based on carnatic music voiced by melodious Sudha Raghu Raman. It was enjoyable and all of us learnt a lot about traditional south Indian music. The programme started at 7:30 pm in the memorial hall. We all asked questions and also sang with ma’am. This programme was a great change for us and brought us out of our daily routine and helped us to gain knowledge about our own culture. The concert ended at 8:30 pm. It was a great experience for all of us and before I went to sleep the only thought in my mind was MUSIC HAS NO BOUNDS TO LANGUAGE.
