As it is rightly said, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end”.
The journey which started with 760 students from 21 schools in the 1st round, 180 in the 2nd round & 22 in the 3rd round for schools located in regions of Pune, Mumbai and Satara, Master Abbas went on to become one of the 6 finalists in Grade 7 & 8 category for the 3rd and final round of “Design Thinking: International Design Olympiad which was held on the 10th of October, 2019 at the “Deccan Gymkhana, Pune” where it came to an end.
This round was all about an invention which would solve one of the many problems we see around ourselves. Master Abbas chose to solve the problem of transporting medical emergencies to nearby hospitals on time, for which the Prototype he presented was “Airborne vehicle for emergency missions”.
We believe in admiring the creativity of our students at Peter’s, which gives them the boost to think out of the box and come out with amazing ideas to make a difference in the world. We never get tired of providing the same support system for our students by identifying their skills & capabilities and turning them into winners.
At the same time, results are only possible when our parents too are involved in the desire of the student and render the same amount of support. This helps the child in becoming responsible and generates a tremendous amount of self-esteem and self-confidence.
As a school, we are proud of our Student, Master Abbas Amiruddin who was given the title Mr. Artistic by his friends in the school after the successful completion of the second round and we are thankful to the parents for being such a support.
P.S: Our Principal, Dr. Wilfred Noronha was later felicitated by Mr. Ninad Panse, CEO of Design Derivatives with a token of appreciation & thanks for being one of the finalist schools & for giving this platform thus allowing students to participate in this Olympiad.
