The Sunday morning ‘Bournvita Quiz Contest’ has always kept us glued to the television sets, racking our brains. Or at least acting to! When we think of the show, instantly the only figure that comes to mind is that of Derek O’ Brien. It cannot be denied that he has been the life of the show.
Derek’s knowledge company, Derek o’ Brien and Associates recently conducted an Intra-School Quiz ‘Faster, Smarter and Better Challenge’ at Maharana Mewar Public School Art Block on August 7, 2013. Great insights were shared the fun way through interactive activities and the kids enjoyed the immense learning! The Inter-School City Final was held on August 13, 2013 at Rockwoods High School, Udaipur.
An exciting activity as it turned out to be, adds to the initiatives that MMPS is taking to ensure that the children’s foundation is strong and well rounded. MMPS envisions these children to face the world head-on.
