    Mahatma Gandhi Inter School Competition was started in the year 2009 with an Inter School Debate Competition organized by Kendriya Vidyalaya in association with the Embassy of India.  The objective was to provide the children of different schools in Kathmandu Valley a forum where they can exhibit their talents, interact with children of other schools in a competitive manner and inculcate a sense of camaraderie, esprit-de-corps and personality development.  In 2010, Painting was also included in the ambit of this competition and seeing the enthusiasm amongst the schools and the children towards this annual event and willingness on the part of some schools to also become a part of it as organizers, the Embassy of India decided to organize Gandhi Memorial Inter School Competitions in a big way involving more schools as organizers and incorporating multi-events.

    This year, Gandhi Memorial Inter School Competitions – 2011 were launched with a Marathon organized by Kendriya Vidyalaya in April this year and the final event i.e. Badminton was organized by APF School in September. 

    Embassy of India is happy to see the accomplishment of the comprehensive objectives of Gandhi Memorial Inter-School Competitions and hopes that this event will be the most awaited annual phenomenon amongst the schools in Kathmandu Valley in the years to come.
