It was a great honour to be recognised and awarded the Coach of the Year 2019 at the Global Round event of the
World Scholars Cup held in Netherlands. It was a privilege to be placed in such distinguished ranks as those of the past
honorees. It was a mind-boggling and humbling experience to be chosen as one of the best teachers from more than
4000 schools and 70 countries that participate in the programme. I want to thank Greensteds International School for giving me the opportunity to lead the programme for the last three years.
I also want to thank my colleagues for the invaluable support they have given the me over the years. Greensteds International School has been a participant at this event for the last three years. Our students have produced exemplary performances winning trophies and medals. The students also received certificates that enrich their portfolio. This year they won an unprecedented number of medals and trophies. Over the years our students have gone all the way to the Finals at
the Tournament of Champions that is held at Yale University in the United States of America.
The World Scholar’s Cup is an academic competition that includes encouraging, interdisciplinary, discussion-based, forward-looking and synergism among students.
The subjects of study include Special area, History, Art & Music, Literature, Social Studies and Science. The event is held in groups of threes and students are usually engaged in Debates, Collaborative Writing, Scholar’s Bowl and the Scholar’s Challenge.
