Limca Book of Records Quiz – National Finals | Quiz Review
DPS Kolkata wins Limca Book of Records Quiz
The “Limca Book of Records Quiz” competitions were organised for students from Class VIII to XII in over 3,800 schools across 80 cities over a six-month period.
Hosted by quiz master and Rajya Sabha member Derek O’ Brien, the finals saw Delhi Public School, Kolkata, prevailing over teams from Sherwood College, Nainital, and New Era Public School, Delhi.
Felicitating the winners, former Chief Justice J. S. Verma described the event as an “unprecedented learning platform”. “Initiatives such as these are an ideal platform for students since they enhance their awareness around a variety of subjects and stimulate their creative thinking.”
On the occasion, Limca Book of Records holder Aditi Singhal enthralled the students with a quick demonstration of her ability to memorise things.
According to Mr. Brien, the initiative is a great platform to impart knowledge, promote learning and help young minds to know and grow.
The 22nd edition of the Limca Book of Records launched earlier this year was dedicated to the outstanding performances of 15 Indian athletes during the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games in 2010.
