Declamation is about redelivering of an important or famous speech.
The speaker reinterprets the original, reproducing its power. It is a very good exercise for public speaking skills.
The purpose is to have the students directly experience the power of a masterfully crafted language.
This method of teaching was used in ancient Greece, where public speaking was considered a necessary art of anybody embarking on a career in public.
A declamation was a practice piece set by a teacher for exactly the same reason they are set now; to have a student learn the skills of combining eloquent language with equally eloquent delivery.
With this motto of learning, Class V students participated with full enthusiasm and confidence in the Inter Class Declamation Competition.
The Competition winners are as follows:
- BHAVIK PENDALANKA (VF) – FIRST POSITION
- MICHELLE GEORGE (VC) – SECOND POSITION
- ASMI SEHRA (VD) – THIRD POSITION
DEEP PATEL (VA) – THIRD POSITION
