The 28th Spero Meliora took on 13 August 2022 at Kohima Village Council Hall.
Spero Meliora is a yearly event in which student participants representing the four Khels of Kohima Village compete in different song and art categories. The four Khels are: Lhisemia Khel (L Khel), Tsütuonuomia Khel (T Khel), Pfuchatsumia Khel (P Khel) and Dapfhütsumia Khel (D Khel).
Jointly organised by Kohima Village Student’s Union and Dolphin Club, the event saw students participating in different activities such as cultural group song, solo song, painting, spelling bee and debate. The topic of the debate competition was ‘Offline mode of education is more beneficial than online mode of education’.
Dr Kekhrielhoulie Yhome, the Special Guest of the event, donated 5 lakhs for the event. In his speech, he thanked the KVSU and Dolphin Club for organising the Spero Meliora. Talking about the emergence of biopolitics and the need for new leaders in society, he highlighted the importance of local development in providing opportunities to community leaders. He also encouraged the students to make the best of platforms like the Spero Meliora.
