Sad to look at the news as it is incomplete and just praising Bhavans.
Further the Bhavans school principal who was asked to speak about the event also congratulated only his school children failing to understand that there were children from different schools who are being honoured.
Look ahead at IIK to publish the complete news as from 14 only 2 Sastra Pratibha winners name are highlighted.

Congratulations Bhavans School. My kids used to be here until they left for India. The amount of encouragement the staff led by their principal is the source of energy for the kids to perform at the highest level of contests. Read all the school reports and you can see the energy of the principal in each one of them and I remember when my daughter won a prize at one of the company functions she made it a point that we kept it in her bag as the following day the principal made an announcement over the public adddress system in the school and everyone clapped for her. Sheer proud moment and that is why IES is a special school and not for other reasons.

This is not the report written by the SIF officials for you to react. The reports that you will read in this section are written by the school reporters and they are not going to write a comprehensive report for you to see all the 200 odd winners that were felicitated that night. Bhavans will write only about their children and their principal's message to the kids. You should ask your kid/s school to write their accomplishments and not hold IIK for this report. Let us congratulate the kids whose names appear and the winners of the trophy and then we can write our suggestions to SIF and not IIK.

First of all congratulations to SIF Kuwait for conducting the events and for all the prize winners. The report does not show all the winners. The whole report looks incomplete without mentioning the names of all the winners and outstanding performers from other schools too. Just highlighting one school which received JC Bose award is not acceptable.

I was at this function on Friday and I was amazed to witness the prize distribution of the Acharya Bose award repeated as the principal of Bhavans arrived after the award presented to his teachers and children. This clearly reflected the respect the principal commanded among the organizers of this mega event. In his address he showered praise for his children first and then to his teachers a leadership lesson we few standing around there learnt. Three times champions and visibly happy principal spoke about his interest in SIF for a decade and we all could see Dr. Raju Narayanaswamy acknowledging with pride. Well done Bhavans and principal premkumar
