The speaking events include JAM, debate and GD. Poetry, story-writing and script-writing comprise the Writing events. Also, there are literary quiz, treasure hunt and a lot of informal events like scrabble, hangman, etc. Our Spell Bee is being endorsed by the Indian Spell Bee, giving it a very high standard.
