Silence may be golden, but in the present extremely competitive era, the importance of speech shouldn’t be underestimated. Man being a social animal, effective communication is a must.
The onus is on the education system to prepare students for the future. With this objective in mind, the Achievers School, Nagpur, had organised a Toastmasters – Public Speaking Competition for students of grades 9 and 10.
The School provides platforms to students to showcase and sharpen their oratory skills from time to time.The response from the students was overwhelming and the array of topics they spoke on was mind- boggling.
The topics ranged from those which offered pure entertainment and humour to those tackling serious socio-economic issues, albeit put across with a tinge of humour, to get the message across to the audience.
The Judges for the Competition were Founder Director- Mrs. Sapna Katiyar and Ms. Yogeeta Divecha, Language Mentor. Dr. Priyadarshini Deoghare, Director-Academics & Principal, was in awe of the oratory skills of the students. She applauded all the participants and encouraged them to keep doing so in the future. Director Mrs. Sapna Katiyar, appreciated the efforts of the young orators as she enlightened them on the importance of the same for them as future citizens of this world.
