2. Panel Discussion
As a Collaborating Hub School, Golden Gate had an opportunity to participate in the Panel Discussion, and thus Miss Anisha Joshi from Class 10 successfully participated in the program.
Panel Discussion this year was a special one because it was organized in commemoration of Birth Centenary of Prof. Dr. Kauro Ishikawa on the theme “Contribution and Philosophy of Prof. Dr. Kaoru Ishikawa on Quality management”. Initially, it was supposed to be moderated by Prof. Dr. Dinesh P. Chapagain himself, the man behind all quality movement led by QUEST-Nepal, but since he is currently residing in Manila, The Philippines, due to some serious health issues, the program was moderated by Principal Mr. Singa Lama, Executive and SQC Master Trainer at QUEST.
3. Mansha Memorial TQP Award
Established in memory of Late Mansha Chapagain, the beloved daughter of Prof. Dr. Dinesh P. Chapagain, who died at her early age of 31, this contest is based on initial psychometric test of young students practising SQC in Nepal to measure the qualities of goodness and smartness so as to evaluate them in the scale of Total Quality Person (TQP) and award the Top 5 students amongst Top 10 in the central convention after concluding questionnaire round by a panel of judges.
