GIISians showcase good communication skills in the Elocution Competition
The art of communication is considered to be the language of leadership. When children are given the opportunities during their schooling years to speak and express their views fluently and confidently, they become responsible citizens of the future.
At Global Indian International School (GIIS) Whitefield, the importance of right communication is taught to the students of all grades. The Elocution competition conducted for the students of Grade 1-8 during their House Activity class. The students of all the classes were given different topics to speak. Grade 1 and 2 had to speak about 'Importance of Trees', Grade 3- 5 were to talk about 'Leaders who changed the World' and Grade 6-8 had to speak about the 'Impact of Technology’. Whether it was a Grade 1 student or a Grade 8 student, they exhibited very good oral communication skills. They were receptive to all the feedbacks and very eager to learn and improve. The purpose of such activities in the campus, is to hone the spoken English skills of the students to help them learn the art of presentation with proper voice modulation and clarity of speech.
