Technology dates as far back as the Stone Age and was elevated to the Bronze Age and reached the Iron Age, which brought technological advancements in weaponry and finally to the computer age i.e. ‘SILICON AGE’. Today’s age is known as the age of Information Technology where people have access to information from almost every part of the world. It has helped in shrinking the world and creating a ‘Global Village’ which is just a click away. The computer and the web have certainly had a profound impact on our society.
The International Informatics Olympiad (iiO), a test of competence and proficiency in computer science, is held annually at the National and International levels. It is indeed a great effort in inspiring young minds to enhance their competitive skill and knowledge about computers. It is the best way to identify cyber savvy talents among the younger generation. iiO is conducted at two levels.

by the school Vice Sports Captain, Bhawna Yadav, was an
inspirational move and paved way for solemn ‘Oath of true
and fair sportsmanship’.
The programme began with the zestful moving
cheerleaders taking the stage and the pom pom in the air. A
wonderful aerobics item was highly applauded where the
hoola‐hoops made spirals, quite elegantly, around the waist
of the queens. The audience was enthralled to witness a
‘self‐defence’ display by the queens wherein Judo moves
and lifts were unmatchable and showed that our girls are
no less than boys. Thereafter the participants for the
various athletic events came into action and went on a
spree to bag gold, silver and bronze medals.
Prize distribution was a moment of elation and motivation
when the Queens flaunted shimmering medals around their
neck. It was a day full of fun and frolic wherein the
confidence and the beaming smile of the winners to the
victory podium conveyed the message of many potential
