MACFAIR International is organized every alternate year by City Montessori School, Mahanagar Campus II, Lucknow, India, with the objective of providing a platform for students to display and match their talents, skills and wits and to imbibe values of tolerance, co-existence and world citizenship through cross cultural interaction. We have always incorporated “burning issues” in MACFAIR to enhance the awareness of our students. Over the years, MACFAIR evolved and developed from national to international level and has acquired its present shape by creative inputs of all those who have been associated with MACFAIR Family.
CMS strives to make every student the light of the world. By challenging their intellect through problems in mathematics and computer at international competitions, students are made aware of their mental development in computer, science, mathematics and other fields.
CMS upholds that school must act as a lighthouse of society for providing meaningful education, spiritual direction and leadership to students, parents and the society and concern itself with the affairs of the age. In this age the malady of society is its godlessness, its ignorance, its confusion and its conflict. The purpose of today's education should be redemption of humankind from these maladies.
If the mind of today’s youngsters is like a mine rich in gems of inestimable value, MACFAIR strives to discover, reveal treasures of their intellect. Over the years we have, through observation and experience, incorporated new events to make MACFAIR more challenging. During the four-day long MACFAIR YOUTH FESTIVAL, the following competitions will be held:
SENIORS (XI and XII): 1. Elocution, 2. Maths Quiz, 3. Social Window, 4. Half-A-Minute, 5. Choreography
JUNIORS (IX and X): 1. Twin-Quinturdles, 2. Mac-Bug, 3. Green Teen Quiz, 4. Maths Quiz, 5. Science Model Display
MACFAIR explores healthy avenues to release the youths capacities, develop their analytical abilities, build self- confidence, will power, goal setting competencies and instills in the young minds spiritual awareness and a moral vision that will enable them to become self- motivated agents of social change committed to the welfare of humanity.
The 10th MACFAIR International 2012 is scheduled to be held at the World Unity Convention Centre, CMS Kanpur Road Campus, Lucknow, India, from 31st August to 3rd September 2012.
With the school motto of Jai Jagat and the philosophy of “Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam” as the guiding principle, CMS has been trying to share its spiritual vision of education with like minded visionary educationists like you. We share our conviction that the purpose of education is to establish a divine civilization on earth through material, human and divine education. We have great honour in inviting you as the head of your institution and your team to this exciting contest. The principal is not expected to be the official team leader, but is a special guest of honour on all/any of the days of MACFAIR. Entries will be accepted on first-come-first-serve basis. Preference would however be given to those teams whose principal accompanies the team.
