“To have another language is to possess a second soul”– Charlemagne (King Charles I)
To highlight the importance of English language in today’s world, Presidium Hisar recently celebrated ‘English Week’. The idea behind the event was to hone the Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing skills of the students using progressive methodology. The first day of the week began with a special assembly with an invocation to the almighty, followed by welcoming of the special guest- Professor Umesh Arya who is currently teaching in Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology, Hisar and has published a book on Newspaper vocabulary. He motivated the students to converse in English and he emphasised that they should speak small sentences and grammatically correct sentences. Later, activities like picture caption, slogan writing and spellathon were conducted. The week was filled with activities like crossword puzzle, role play, tongue twisters, English songs and just a minute. The week culminated with a special assembly and prize distribution. Principal, Ms. Ragni gave a strong message to all students that we at Presidium work towards nurturing strong innovative and intellectual beings projecting themselves as poised and bold harvests ready to take the world. She stated that the reason we come up with such activities is not just to make the youngsters fluent in a language but to give them a buoyant and positive outlook about life and develop confidence and innovative skills.
