The beginning of the quiz was marked with prudent words by our Rector, Father Varkey Perekkatt followed by words of wisdom from the Principal, Dr. Sheila Rai. All 16 contestants were divided into 4 teams namely ‘Euro' ‘Dollar' ‘Rupee' and ‘pound'. We had five rounds namely GENERAL ROUND, BRAIN TEASER, MELA, PICTIONARY and FAST & FURIOUS to decide best among them. With every answer, the competition got intense & exhibited  the level of knowledge they had and one could feel that the entire generation today is blessed with immense zeal, positivity and enthusiasm but again there are always a few extra adroit brains and in this competition, it was team ‘Dollar' who emerged victorious.
