The New7Wonders of the World have been given a unique interpretation by students of the National Hill View Public School in Banashankari, a suburb of Bangalore in India. Imaginative models of Christ the Redeemer, the Colosseum, Chichen Itza, the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu, Petra and India’s very own Taj Mahal were fashioned by the children and the public exhibition of the work was titled “Vismaya Loka,” which means Amazing World.

National Hill View School principal Shobhana Prabhakaran praised the students and teachers for their work in producing the exhibition. “It’s important to get connected and be aware of international things,” she said, speaking to the Times of India. “The children had to go into the depth to find out different aspects of countries and their culture.” According to the PowerPoint presentation accompanying the exhibition:

“The whole school consisting of classes 1 to 7 were equally divided in groups where each group represented one wonder. Each group carried out extensive and comprehensive research in all areas and pertinent information about the political, geographical, history, culture, economic, scientific temper, and food habits was represented through charts, models, PowerPoint presentations, clippings, and life-size replicas of each wonder.

The children who were dressed in the traditional clothing of that country explained to our visitors vivid details of the wonder they represented and staged dance shows to showcase the cultural life. Each visitor received a memento depicting the wonder. They also had the opportunity to taste the delicacies as part of the wonder’s identity. The venue decoration was a re-incarnation of the Seven Wonders and proved to be a thrilling experience for the visitors.”

National Hill View Public School opened its doors in June 2001 as a result of the pioneering work conducted by the educationist Dr.K.P.Gopalakrishna. In keeping with his vision, it aims to provide quality education through the consistent pursuit of excellence. National Hill View Public School Unit II, which opened in June 2013, is part of a group of institutions established by the National Education Foundation.
