PRESIDIANS MASTER THE ART OF PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS @ DECLAMATION
Speech has the power to change the world and a good speaker is always able to captivate the audience with words.
Reflecting upon this idea, our budding orators from Presidium, Rajnagar geared up for the Inter-class Declamation competition organised by 'The Story Tellers Academy'.
All the participants exhibited their exceptional oratory skills, accent fluency in their speeches and put in best of their efforts. It was incredible to see young students speaking on issues like global terrorism, racial discrimination, life in the urban jungle, information technology and many other critical topics.
Organising such competitions at school broadens the horizons of intellect and critical thinking in students and highlights the true meaning of Declamation, that is- diction and eloquence.
PRESIDIANS EXHIBIT THE ART OF SELF-EXPRESSION AT POEM RECITATION
"Poetry comes alive through recitation."
At Presidium, we believe that every student is gifted and should be given an opportunity to showcase his/her hidden talent and prowess. With the same belief, the Storytellers, Academy for Mass Communication, organised a 'Rhymes and Chimes' -an Intra-class Recitation competition for Grade Nursery and Prep, to enrich and enable the three skills of diction, speech and memory, at Presidium Raj Nagar.
At the event, our young students actively participated in the competition and recited various English Rhymes and poems with the help of different colourful props on each. Their performances were truly appreciated by one and all as our students exhibited unmatched confidence and poise on stage.
