The Middle School students signed up to participate in a Talkathon competition, which proved to be a huge success. Talkathons have always helped our students build confidence in their language skills. Apart from honing their public speaking, students gained a better understanding on topics unrelated to academics and it helped build confidence in expressing themselves. The topics given for each grade level were different, thought-provoking and allowed students to explore and express their imaginative and informative takes on them. Some of the topics were “Why apologising when you are wrong is important” and “Manners Matter”.
