Plain Speaking in Marathi for Classes V to VII was held on 29th November, 2018. The programme started at 9.00 a.m. in the School Auditorium with the welcome of our esteemed judges Mrs. Sunita Pereira of Christ Church School and Mr. Shankar Kolge of Diamond Jubilee School who spared their valuable time for the programme. We had a background tract ‘मी मराठी’ being played as the judges entered the hall.
The programme was divided in three sessions-
Session 1 – class – 5
Session 2 – class – 6
Session 3 – class – 7
The comperes for the programme were Master Vewdant Harlalka, Master Ayaan Waris and Master Nuh Thakur. The students recited their poems very well. This year we had the name of the participant, the name of his poem and a picture related to it being displayed on the screen which made the competition very effective. This creativity was appreciated by the judges, parents and Teachers.
The students secured merits for their efforts. The students were judged on the basis of clarity in speech, expression, memory and confidence.
The students participated with great enthusiasm. The parents seemed to enjoy watching their children reciting poems in Marathi.
The programme ended at 2.40 p.m. It was an enjoyable experience for the students.
