Budgam girl to participate in Aloha int'l competition in China
Srinagar, Feb 22: Aloha India will sponsor a girl student from Kashmir to participate in an international competition being held by Aloha International every year in Malaysia. This year the competition will be held in China in May.
The student Qurat-ul-Ain from Beerwah Budgam had participated in a national competition conducted by Aloha India at Surat. Of the 4500 students who had participated in the competition, four were selected for international competition including Ain.
This was revealed at a press meet-cum-felicitation function organized by ALOHA J&K to facilitate its national competition winners on Monday.
Managing Director, ALOHA J&K, Mubashir Aslam Wafai said this year out of four students sponsored by ALOHA India, a girl student Qurat-ul-Ain will be participating in the international level competition to be held in Hangzou China in May this year.
He said in December 2009 ALOHA national level competition was held in Surat Gujarat, wherein 4500 students participated from all over India. Six students sponsored by ALOHA J&K secured positions and one championship, he said.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Ain, a 5th standard student of Khosaar Public School, Budgam, said she was quite confident to win the international level competition. “I am very happy that I am participating in the international competition,” she said.
Wafai said their students had time and again proved their mettle not only in the national level competitions but in the international level competitions as well.
He said previous year also, out of four students sponsored by ALOHA for international level competition, one student, namely Malik Arsalan, secured second position in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
He said the students in J&K possessed enough talent, “but the only question is to provide them enough opportunity.”
He called upon parents to let their children join ALOHA, “so that they can excel in future.”
“ALOHA network is well spread out in the state and its programmes are everywhere available now. So parents should let their children grab this opportunity and improve their mental faculty,” he said.
Wafai added that ALOHA was conducting GAT across the state on Tuesday, in which around 3,500 students were participating.
“We are trying to prepare children for competitive exams, like GAT, IAS, KAS, etc and at the same time helping to eradicate unemployment in the state,” he said.
Speaking on the occasion, Ghafoor Wahid, director human resources development, ALOHA J&K, said ALOHA was not just about developing mathematic skills in students, “but this kind of mental exercise eventually helps an individual, especially children, to develop focus and concentration.”
ALOHA J&K distributed prizes among the winner students while the latter performed live demonstration on the occasion.
