“Poetry is to the heart, what music is to the soul”, was the motivation behind the Inter-Class Recitation Competition, of the Primary and Secondary Sections.
The latter was titled ‘The Winged Word’. It was good to see the close fight presented by the participants as the scores indicated. Surely these young bards gave WINGS to the emotive word ….in today’s world expressing one’s feelings should be part of one’s upbringing and education . . . . our young men are moving in the right direction.
The comperes for the day did well in motivating each of the participants. The Participants recited poems ranging from different ages of English Literature to even self composed ones.
After every class, a presentation was staged. Std 5 enacted the poem, “Teamwork’; Std 6 added tune to “Beauty”; and Std 7 had a choral recitation.
