The new world order requires youngsters to be ready with a set of skills which the earlier generations did not require. The world in which our children will work in the very near future will require them to articulate their ideas. An idea, a thought, an argument, which a youngster things about must be communicated and sold to the world, lest it withers and dies. The ability to express oneself on stage in front of an audience is a time-tested method of expressing these ideas that need to be told. In the era of communication and competition, it also is a necessary skill. In keeping with this need, Paradigm Shift has invited participants from our school for its next edition of Little Orators and Young Orators.
Little Orators (Grades 7 and 8) – a total of 5 participants from our school will be sent to this event
Young Orators (Grades 9 and 11) – a total of 8 participants from our school will be sent to this event
Since the number of participants to the event is restricted, auditions to select participants will be held during the Home Meal break on Wednesday (29th Nov) for grades 7 and 8; and Thursday (30th Nov) for grades 9 and 11. Students are expected to bring their snack boxes with them for the auditions (in case their turn exceeds the break time, the teachers for the next slot will be sent a note).
Selected Students will be sent to a workshop (which is mandatory). Little Orators workshop will be on 2nd December and Young Orators on 16th December.
Dates for the Semi-finals and Final round will be sent at a later date by the organizers.
