Special Achievements during the year 2014-15

 Inspired by his father’s single statement “Why don’t you try a hand in this competition that is out of the box?” a write-up was sent to the NASA Ames research center where the scientifical juries awarded him with the third position in the world. Seeing his excellent work and vast knowledge, they invited him to attend the 33rd International Space Development Conference (I.S.D.C.) that was held in Los Angeles, California, from May 14-18 2014. Flying with his father and his dreams with lot of hope and determination, Mr. Soumik Ghosh Moulic attended the conference where he discussed his proposal with the top Scientists and Aerospace engineers of the world. Not only this, over there, he also came first in another competition titled “Return to Mars Challenge” where he used his phenomenal skills to design a rocket and make a key for a space lock for a Mars Mission. Mr. Soumik achieved all this at class 10, managing his board exams and his research paper at once. But this didn’t mean that his fire settled down, he did it again in class 11 and he was again called to Toronto for attending the 34th I.S.D.C. that was held on May 20-24 2015. But due to his class 12 studies, he wasn’t able do attend it. Nevertheless we are proud to have such a skilled student as our alumnus and we gift him our best wishes for his bright future.


A long celebrated tradition of conducting English awareness and improvement programs has gradually evolved into what is today known as the Spelling Bee. ‘Bee’ here refers to a gathering of the cognoscenti in the English language, held in the form of a competition. The Spelling Bee, originally derived from SCRIPPS, U.S.A. has been adopted by various other organizations, one of them being MaRRS Intellectual Services (Asia). Our student, Faraz Arif, studying in Class XI-H (2015-2016) has been a part of the International Championship of the MaRRS International Spelling Bee held at the Indian Social and Cultural Centre, Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. on the 23rd of May 2015, and managed to finish in the Top 20, winning an impressive scholarship of $111.
