Felicitation to students of Zion school for cracking IAS Examination.
2 former students of Zion Matriculation Hr.Sec.School of 2003 batch Mr.Frank Noble & Mr.Samuel Paul have cleared IAS Examination and are to undergo 2 years training at Lal Bahadur Sastry Administrative academy, Mussorie, Uttarakhand. Out of 5.5lakhs candidates appeared for UPSC, these 2 students secured All India Rank of 157 & 242 respectively. During the felicitation function in Zion school on 26.08.2013, they motivated students of Higher secondary level to fix the goal, unmindful of the enroute, stumbling blocks and to sustain patience & hardwork for reaching the goal. They advised the students to be an inveterate reader of English Newspapers specially focusing more on editorial page which may appear to be difficult and dry in the beginning but in course of time the view of various exponents of the society who wrote the above articles will be very clear and useful for UPSC.
Also to concentrate on Indian culture, Economics, Politics. More importantly the basic education that we receive from school greatly helped us to reach the target without much of difficulty.
The motivational speech given by Mr.V.Irai Anbu, in 2001 was a motivating factor which in fact worked as an electro motive force for our achievement. The students asked number of questions about the course of study to select after XII for which the response was that it is immaterial about the nature of the course, gaining knowledge at all levels right from the school is more important.
