INTER HOUSE ENGLISH ELOCUTION COMPETITION 2023-2024
Elocution helps an individual to build up on the communication skills. Our school has always wanted the children to prepare well for life, where good communication is of vital importance. This is best achieved when they start off early at honing their speaking skills. Developing grammatical exactitude and proper pronunciation are a must in school life. Every year St. Michael’s School, Durgapur, organises an elocution competition for classes one to twelve to boost their powers of oration and eloquence.
This year, on 2nd August 2023, Wednesday, the Inter House English Elocution Competition was conducted in two parts. In the first half we had the Primary section making us proud of their speaking skills. In the Second half, we had our Senior students winning over our hearts with their performance.
The primary section had three categories. Class one, Category one, had joint holders of the first position- Shivani Barnwal of class 1D and Ritisha Choudhary of class 1C. Ashmi Sadhu of class 1C secured the third position. Ritika Singha of class 2C, secured the first position from category 2, comprising of classes 2 and 3. Jagriti Pathak of 2D came second, while Kinjal Deb of 2D and Abe Chakraborty of 2A were awarded the third position jointly. Category 3 had participants from classes 4 and 5. Its winner was Kirtman Kaur from class 5C. On the whole, St. George’s House stood first from the Primary Section in this year’s Elocution Competition.
The Secondary had two categories. Classes 6 to 8 had participated in category 1 and classes 9 to 12 in category 2.
