English Week (30 July to 4 August 2018)
Shri Sohanlal Manihar School celebrated English week from 30 July to 4 August 2018. It was a week of fun and excitement with a lot of learning, with the children being fruitfully engaged in various tasks, during the zero period, so as to not disturb the regular teaching lessons. Spell Bee, Poem Recitation, and Debate competition were held.
The week was inaugurated by the Principal Mrs. Anita Kacker and Vice-principal Mr. Dinesh Choudhary. On the first day students of Classes VI-VIII enjoyed an Inter Class Spell Bee Competition with interesting rounds like Guess the Word, Synonyms and Rapid Fire. The students of classes IX & X enthusiastically participated in the Just A Minute (JAM) inter-class competition on 31 July. By the end of JAM the students realised how difficult it was to speak continuously for a minute on any topic in English. It was followed by a Debate Competition for Classes IX-XII. The enthusiastic participants engaged in a War of Words on the topic “Do Celebrities Get Away more Crime than Common People?” . An ‘Inter Class Spell Bee Competition’ was conducted on 3 August 2015 for the students of classes- IX & X aimed at creating awareness of the possibilities of using varied words in oral and written expressions and add words to the active vocabulary and familiarize the students with functional grammar. The Week culminated with the English play “Macbeth” by William Shakespeare on 4 August.
