“TO HAVE ANOTHER LANGUAGE IS TO POSSESS ANOTHER SOUL”.
Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going. To be able to speak comfortably and fluently in a different language is a great human quality. We at WGS through CCA Inter House competitions try our best to encourage children to become great story tellers.
With this thought, we had organized an Inter House 2nd Language Thematic Story telling competition on 16thAugust, 2019. Grade 1 and 2 children narrated stories which made them aware of their own culture and roots that encouraged showcasing their creativity and imagination. The activity also helped them to open up with their ideas and free thinking capability.
The children of Grade 1 & 2 presented their stories on the Theme of ‘Empathy’ in the 2nd Language (Hindi / Kannada) that they learn in school. The students who qualified for the finals came up with some astonishing tales that had moral values , which is the most important skill required in the 21st century.
The participants were judged on various parameters like Presentation skills, Usage of the 2nd Language Usage, Pronunciation and inclusion of the theme in the story.
The Judges for the event Ms. H M Laxmi and Ms. Chitra Kulkarni were enthralled by the narratives. They had a tough time deciding on the winners. Indeed, the competition was an authentic showcase of true fluency and eloquence.
