…..Winning Laurels Outside the School
The Vidyalaya provides several forums for children to overcome shyness and confidently take centre stage. From the start, class discussions (at all levels), Home Room debates on crucial issues, C.A’s and class programs provide ample opportunity for even the shyest child to stand up and speak.The faculty spends hours at practices and rehearsals, often staying back after school hours to help children polish up their act. What is unusual is that adult intervention is kept to the minimum, thus ensuring that success is earned and the resulting confidence, permanent.
Participating in Inter School events gives the children a chance to leave the safety net of the School and experience the challenges of the outside world. It is both an exhilarating and a sobering experience. Exhilarating because winning brings confidence and it is sobering to find that there are others from other schools who are just as good, if not more talented. The winners are felicitated at the assembly time when the trophy is displayed and a brief summary of the event is shared with everyone. As a means of encouragement for others to test their skills, this appearance at assembly, is invaluable for nurturing talent, discovering skills.
