An inter house English Declamation Competition for classes 2nd to 9th was organized with great enthusiasm and fervor at Sacred Heart Convent International School on 22nd July 2023. This event provided a platform for young and talented students to showcase their oratory skills and express their views on various thought-provoking topics.
The primary objective of the contest was to encourage public speaking, boost self-confidence, and foster the ability to articulate ideas effectively. Participants were given the opportunity to choose their topics and deliver speeches that were engaging, impactful, and persuasive.
Students were divided into different categories based on their age groups. A panel of experienced and well-qualified judges was invited to assess their performance based on various criteria, which included relevance, depth, and originality of ideas presented; voice modulation, body language, and overall presentation; and the ability to engage the audience and leave a lasting impression.
To recognize and appreciate the efforts of the participants, certificates of appreciation were awarded to the winners and runners-up.
The Declamation Competition was a resounding success, with each contestant showcasing their exceptional oratory skills and eloquence. The event not only helped in honing the public speaking abilities of the students, but also encouraged them to develop a deeper understanding of the world around them.
