Alpine Public School takes pleasure and pride to announce that Aatish J Shenoy and Archishman VB ( students of grade 10) are back from their News Wiz journey…and what a fulfilling journey it has been. They put up a brave fight against PSBB, Chennai and Little Flower School, Hyderabad. Alpine was leading the scoreboard in the first two rounds, briefly came down in the third and made a remarkable recovery to tie themselves for the first place in a cliffhanger with Little Flower School . They played with the confidence of a top notch quiz team only they were a few nano seconds slower than their closet competitor in hitting the buzzer .
The two A’s of Alpine as we all like to call them fondly , have emerged heroes , they may not have won the competition , but rest assured they have won many hearts. The entire crew at the India Today TV opined that Alpine was the better team and deserved to win but didn’t have the stroke of luck. This was seconded by Mr Rajdeep Sardesai and Ms Anita Siddharth Basu the producer of the show. And not to to forget these two young lads have few other achievements to their credit ..They are the first team in Alpine to have made it to three quiz finals in a row. The first of course was where the News Wiz journey started when they beat more than 150 schools to reach the next level of the New Wiz Delhi rounds, the second , they bagged the first place in a quiz held at the RNS Vidyaniketan the third making it to the top 6 at the one of most prestigious quizzes in Bangalore at the Amaatra Academy, a PES institute.
This is just the beginning., Aaatish and Archishman have higher summits to scale and have set a new benchmark for all Alpinians to follow and conquer. This is indeed a phenomenal achievement . Winning and losing is part of the game ,but today ,these boys can walk with their heads held high after this heroic effort.It would be a source of pride to see the name of the school appear on national television, we at Alpine also have a sense of gratitude towards the boys as they kept the Alpine flag flying high on a such a prestigious platform.
