        Convergence 2014

         

        23 schools of Delhi NCR participated in  Convergence 2014 a two-day festival of Knowledge and word artistry organised by the Air Force School within its school premises on 23 -24 July 2014  .The festival was a knitting together of the three seemingly different genres of Debating, Quizzing and Creative Writing . The beauty of this program lay in the versatility of the school teams which combined their skills in the three areas to compete for the top position.

        TAFS has been holding the Inter School Debate for the past two decades, while it stepped into the quizzing five years ago. Changing its previous format the school created an exciting new event, thereby broadening its scope.

        The Central theme of the event was War, Conflict and the Peace initiatives of the 20th and the ongoing 21st Century. The present year- 2014 is a year of commemoration of four major memory fragments in the collective consciousness of the human race. This year marks the Centenary of World War I, 75 years of World War II, two major Indian landmarks- 100 years of Gandhiji's return voyage from South Africa to India and the centenary of the historic Ghadar Party that fought for India's freedom from the distant shores all across the world.

         These were the sub -themes running through all the three genres. 

        July 23, 2014-The Preliminary Round

        The preliminary round consisted of extempore and turncoat debate.

        Topics for the extempore debate

        Pool A: Those who selectively forget history are permanently condemned to repeat it.

        Pool B: History by its own nature cannot be neutral.

        Topics for Turncoat

        Crises

        Collateral

        Confront

        Shrapnel

        Refugee

        Ethnicity

        Exclusion

        Enclave

        Holocaust etc (Each turncoat speaker was given a single word to construct his debate)

        The debating teams answered a written quiz. The third member of the team wrote poems (Sculpt-a-Poem.)

        In Sculpt – a- Poem three images from the chosen periods were displayed. The first picture displayed articles used by Gandhi without showing the leader himself. The second image was the execution by firing squad of a group of Indian rebels in Singapore .These rebels had been inspired by the philosophy of the Gadar Party. The third image displayed use of biological and chemical weapons in World War I. The poems had to broadly revolve around the theme and sub-text of the images. The participants had to prepare the first draft, second draft and the final draft of the poem. Along with the final poem they had to submit the first two drafts to show how the poem had been crafted.

        The evolution, editing, re-drafting, re-structuring and the journey of the final poem were marked and not just the final draft. To read the award winning entries follow the link given below:

        POEMS

        July 24, 2014: Semi –Finals, Final- Face Off

        Ten teams made it to the semi-finals and participated in the classical extempore debate and rounds of quizzing.

        Addressing the students before the semi-finals Mr Pranab Mukherjee, the moderator and quiz master of the events remarked that school quizzing teaches students to analyze. Hence quizzing is a parallel curriculum-neither extra-curricular nor co-curricular. He appreciated the efforts of The Air Force School for changing the format completely despite a history of 20 years of debating. The reinvented Debate closed the distance between Debate, Quizzing and Writing.

        Topics for Semi Finals

        Pool A: This House believes that People’s History of themselves always differs from the official history of people

        Pool B: This house believes that Revolutions are fought on the streets not on Facebook

        Two teams D .A .V Gurgaon and Modern School ,Barakhamba reached the final face off round where the three members of each team indulged in intense debating including the Block and Tackle format followed by quizzing.

        The winners of the creative writing competition read their poems before the audience.

            The departmental activity ‘An Interview with a famous personality / author’ was successfully conducted on July 17, 2014. All sections of class VIII participated in the activity. The classes were briefed earlier and screening was done. Thereafter many students enacted the theme in pairs.

             

            This experience gave them an exposure to formal etiquettes and enhanced their communication skills, which would help them in their inter personal relationships. It was an eye opening experience to see the young minds unveil the magic of life.

              The senior wing investiture ceremony was held on 18th July 2014 in the Aravali Hall where the newly selected members of the Student Council were officially vested with their powers and positions. The prestigious ceremony began with the lighting of the lamp by the Chief Guest Guest AIR Commodore HN Bhagwat, VM, Principal Director, Sports and Adventure Schools, Chairman, Managing Committee, Air Force Schools, Mrs.Shubhada Bhagwat and Ms. Deepika T Singh, Principal TAFS.

In her address she highlighted the qualities that are essential in a leader – the 3 C’s – Camaraderie, Courage and Compassion. This was followed by a cultural programme where the school choir melodiously rendered the song ‘To Believe.’ The Bharatnatyam dance performance by the students of class VIII was a blend of both classical and contemporary dance forms.

               

              As the student council members were invested with their honours, a wave of applause from the audience congratulated them. The newly elected members took the oath in a very solemn manner and promised to discharge their duties honestly and to the best of their abilities.

               

              Speaking on the occasion Air Commodore Bhagwat reminded the student council members of their great responsibility and asked them to be ready for changes as “Change is the only constant in human life.”  Sir also encouraged the students to think about others who are not as fortunate as us and thus give back to the society.

               

              The ceremony concluded with a vote of thanks by the Vice-Principal Mrs. Amita Gupta and the Air Force Schools’ song. It was a memorable occasion for the young leaders as they looked forward to a new and enriching academic session.
