Speaking is a very important skill and we at Udgam School, see to it that our students develop this essential skill early on. ‘Igniting Minds’ was one such event for the 4th graders that tested their public speaking skills. The theme of activity was ‘ inspirational people’ who ignite the minds of our young students. The judges of ‘Igniting Minds’ were Ms. Priya Jha and Ms. Rohini Nanda (both primary section English teachers). Each and every participant delivered their speech with optimum confidence, loaded with solid information, once again leaving the judges in quandary while choosing the top 3 among all. Children spoke on several inspirational personalities like Sudha Murthy, Helen Keller, Rabindranath Tagore, A.P.J Abdul Kalam, Sudha Chandran, Beethoven, Einstein, Stephen Hawking, K?nosuke Matsushita,Mother Teresa, Lata Mangeshkar , Mary Kom, and Swami Vivekananda. The event was very well organized and stimulating for the audience. A special mention goes to Manisha Gajjar , Brigith Vasava , Sudipta Joshi & Deepal Patel for arranging everything to perfection. It concluded with a short speech by Meetika Ma’am and distribution of certificates by Arathi Ma’am. Every participant received a certificate of appreciation.
