IISM observes English week
India International School, Mangaf observed English week with a week-long innovative celebrations. India’s first Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore and his contribution to the literary arena was the theme.
The activities commenced with an Inter House Quiz Competition on Tagore’s life. Special assemblies were organized by all the sections. The three facets of the English language - prose, poetry, and drama - were authentically presented, followed by choral recitation of ‘Where the mind is without fear’ and a reverberating and meaningful presentation of the Indian National Anthem.
‘Give me the Strength’, a poem in praise was musically composed and sung. ‘Where the Mind is Without Fear’ was presented as a ballet and ‘Kabuliwala’ was enacted in the form of a skit. Children of class I and II performed a song and zealous English games were played in the assembly to enhance the beauty of the language.
The celebration was concluded with an Inter House Debate Competition by class X on ‘Demonetization of 500 and 1000 Indian Rupee Notes’. English week not only provided a platform for the students to showcase their talent but also enhanced their knowledge bank and boosted their self-confidence. The effort taken by the English Department was well appreciated by the School Director, Principal, Senior Vice Principal and the Vice Principals.
