The Lexicon Schools Present BEHES Pune Round: Elevating Inter-School Debate Excellence


BEHES: Nurturing young debaters and leaders for holistic development


 The Lexicon Schools proudly present Behes Pune Round, an inter-school debate competition. This initiative seeks to foster holistic development and instill confidence in young minds through engaging formats of debate, elocution, and public speaking.

“BEHES provides students with an opportunity to not only participate in a debate but also to engage in quality arguments that stimulate critical thinking. This aligns seamlessly with the core vision of The Lexicon Schools – ‘Believe in Yourself.’ We are committed to nurturing individuals who excel both academically and emerge as confident, forward-thinking leaders,” says Mr. Pankaj Sharma, President, The Lexicon Group of Institutes.

BEHES, employing a simplified parliamentary format with two teams of three speakers each, is not merely a local competition but a stepping stone to the esteemed Maha Behes National Finals in July 2024 for the top-performing teams. The Lexicon Schools have seamlessly integrated this format into their curriculum, ensuring that students acquire robust public speaking skills essential for navigating real-world challenges.

Scheduled for December 16th and 17th, 2023, at the Lexicon International School Wagholi, the BEHES Pune round provides students with an exclusive platform to sharpen their critical thinking and analytical abilities. Registrations, processed on a first-come, first-served basis, will close on December 14th. The event underscores the importance of substantive arguments, urging participants to delve into the core of the topic. It concludes with a knockout format, announcing one winning team and one outstanding speaker.

“BEHES is more than a debate; it’s an arena where ideas take flight. This underscores our commitment to nurturing confident communicators. We aim to shape individuals who not only stand out academically but also lead with conviction,” says Mr. Nasir Shaikh, Group Chief Executive Officer, The Lexicon Group of Institutes, EduCrack, & EasyRecruit+

Through initiatives like BEHES, The Lexicon Schools provide students with opportunities to excel in various facets, contributing to their overall personality and development.
