Bhavans swept the KCSC contest and what a proud moment for the science faculty which has posed for an excellent picture seen above. IES has the best science team and on that day almost all of their science teachers we could see supporting their kids. The spirit with which the teachers work with their students is the force behind this huge victory. Students explained their projects with 100% confidence and they could answer without fear and the boys from the grades 5 were amazing. Both just 10 - 11 years old showed absolute brilliance and all credit to their teachers and parents. Admission to IES must be more liberal as the test is tough as the topics tested are different from taught in other schools. Everyone wants IES so vasatha is the path??
