New Delhi, July 31, 2020: Learning through projection is an intrinsic part of the Primary curriculum at Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park. Keeping this in mind, an online ‘Declamation' activity was organised for Class V children on July 24 and 31, 2020. The activity involved the Class V learners speaking about their views on the topics - Frontline Warriors, Importance of Technology in Current Coronavirus Pandemic Situation, Online Classes, and Minding our Minds during the Lockdown in their Synchronous Online Class. It helped encourage young minds to open up and speak in front of their teachers and friends. They could express their thoughts clearly and enthusiastically. Further, it aided in boosting their self-confidence, improved their verbal expressions, and developed their imaginative aptitude. It was indeed heartening for the teachers to see such eager participation by all children. The poise displayed by the young speakers during the online event was praiseworthy. The smiling faces of the children illustrated that they thoroughly enjoyed the activity.
