The number of glittering shiny trophies was beautifully complimenting the wonderful smiles of our students as they stood in pride on an outstanding performance at the GIIS Real World Challenges Convention 2016. Held on November 17, 2016 at the Global Indian International School- East Coast, the Real World Challenges Convention saw the winning spirit and the mettle of the team from GIIS Chinchwad campus.
The GIIS RWCC is a unique platform that encourages students to network with a host of people and problems to research on their chosen topic, find solutions and present the process. The event provides the right stimulation to student teams to present their ideas in the form of art, essay, speeches, debates and multimedia presentations. The theme for the event was “ICE” which stood for Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship. This convention aimed at bringing together schools from Singapore and other Asian countries to celebrate creativity and foster innovation and entrepreneurial skills and sustaining the same enthusiasm in teaching and learning. Mr. Ash Singh, one of Asia’s top startup coaches, graced the event with his presence as the Guest of Honor.

Our students bagged accolades in Quality Circles, Conference, AdZapp, Essay, Art and Turn Coat. Displaying exceptional level of confidence, clarity in thought, creativity and well researched data, our students impressed the judges that lead them towards the victory haul.
