LGS 1a1 Hosted The Lahore Round Of World Scholar’s Cup And We’re Loving The Infectious Enthusiasm Of These Young Pakistanis

Lahore Round Of World Scholar's Cup

The year was 2007 and World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) had just made a start with students from Korea, Singapore and the United States. Ever since, WSC has evolved into a mega tournament reaching out to young people in dozens of countries across the globe. Through World Scholar’s Cup,  Daniel Berdichevsky, its founder, hopes to rise above the constraints of conventional academic competitions and provide students with an opportunity to not just demonstrate their existing skills but also discover new ones.

This year the Lahore Round of World Scholar’s Cup was hosted by LGS – 1a1, (a branch of the esteemed, Lahore Grammar School). More than 320 students from various schools participated in the tournament.

As they say, nothing is true unless first an orientation takes place! The wonderful teachers receive an adjudication training by WSC’s trainer, Joseph.
