The students from years 7-10 were enthralled to begin the LitFest week with a sensational educational play Galileo by the Theatrical Group Artspot. The performance was based on the well-known scientist Galileo Galilei’s journey of discovery, unravelling the mysteries of the universe.
Speak Up Challenge
Secondary students voiced their opinions on pressing issues in the first Speak Up Challenge organized as part of LitFest 2019. The topics ranged from values such as respect, tolerance and leadership to pressing teenage issues including body image and social media. The purpose of this challenge was to enhance public speaking, improvisation, and wordplay keeping in mind the importance of communication as one of the key soft skills in the 21st century.
Students in the secondary expressed their creativity and knowledge of the English Language at the English language Exhibition through innovative board games, 3D models, vocabulary games, collages, quizzes and scrapbooks. Displays of students’ skill and creative writing included winning stories, poems and other exemplars. The Exhibition motivated the students to present their understanding in enjoyable ways. The Reading Challenge corner in which the presenters calculated reading speed was very popular among students and teachers alike. Reading Literacy linked to other subjects such as Math and Science was also a distinctive feature of the exhibition.
