Over 60 students from grades 1 to 8 participated in the event and gave the best that they could invest in it. The initiation came from the Department of Islamic Studies where the opportunity to strive towards perfection for the verses from the Holy Quran was given to them. The competition garnered huge appreciation from the side of teachers where the students were greatly admired for their pious and fervent delivery of the verses. The reciters, who had come prepared for the competition, were gathered in the Prayer Room to recite the verses from the Holy Book of Quran.
