We Hosted A Debate Competition
(By Teena, Cultural Secretary)
Organisational capabilities of our school were proved once again when we hosted the city level debate competition in the month of Aug 20XX. Twenty schools had participated in this event. It was for the first time that such an event was hosted by us.
The event was organized under the aegis of Department of Education. The District Education Officer was the chief guest and Director of the PG College was the guest of honour. The judges were eminent writers of our town.
The programme started in our auditorium at 10 AM with a welcome note by our principal to the guests and students. One by one each participant expressed his / her thoughts. Audience were really spell bound to listen to such powerful and variety of thoughts. They clapped for every participant.
Another good aspect about the arrangement was a very good light and sound system. The discipline maintained by students of our school was appreciated by every visitor.
The chief guest gave away prizes. Guest of honour expressed that such events build confidence among students. In the end I extended vote of thanks to all the guests, participants and audience. The programme ended at 12:30 PM.
Trains Cancelled Passengers Stranded
(By Sunidhi, special correspondent)
18th Jan 20XX
A harsh cold wave and dense fog has gripped the entire desert state of Rajasthan. Visibility is reduced to less than 2 meters. In last two days Railways has cancelled many trains. To have firsthand assessment, this correspondent visited Jaipur railway station.
Outside of the railway station is full of people. Some are eating food while others are trying to buy milk for small kids. Food suppliers have not increased price. Some are giving milk free to kids. They feel it is the time to serve the humanity.
The entire lobby and platform is full of people. Some people are stranded there since last two days. Elders and kids are really having a tough time. They fear that they may not be able to sustain cold for long. They do not know when train for their destination would come.
Railways has set up two additional enquiry counters but even this appears to be inadequate. Railways has deputed additional cleaning staff to maintain hygiene in washrooms as well as on the platform.
Railway administration is clueless about restoring normal operation. It is expected that in two days’ time weather would become favourable and normal operation would be established.
