ISG teams won many trophies and medals in events. Caroline Judi Benhur was adjudged the ‘Top scholar of the school’. She and her schoolmates brought back a rich haul of gold and silver medals for their debating, writing and quizzing skills. All the four teams have qualified for the Global Round.
The qualifying teams will attend the next round in one of the three cities- Hanoi (Vietnam), Cape Town, (South Africa) or Athens (Greece), where the Global Rounds will be held. The students hope to do well and qualify for the final round which will be held at Yale University, US.
