2nd Literary Club Meeting

The literary club meeting was held on 25th July. The meeting began with the club’s president encouraging the student to write short stories and article so that they could be published and it would help in developing the students writing skills. Then two sets of words games were played after that. The junior school had a word sleuth game with 55 words and the high school students played a game called “commonyms”. This activity has the students so engrossed that they didn’t want to stop when the time was up.

Then the main activity of the day began. The activity was called “Once upon a time –today”, where students were asked to represent their favorite literary characters along with their modern counterpart. Shweta Mehta was judged the best for her modern interpretation of Touchstone from As you like it. All the other six participants were given prizes for their representations.

The meeting ended with the announcement of results of the previous activities and prizes were given to the winners in both the Junior and the High school section. Since there is a long gap of a month till the next meeting the students were given an activity of designing a book jacket of their own choice.

On the agenda for the third meeting was a Debate and a word game. The topic for the debate was” CHILDREN NOW-A-DAYS ARE SO INVOLVED IN THE VIRTUAL WORLD THAT THEY HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH REALITY.’ 
 
There were two participants each from every standard. The judges highlighted the strengths and the weaknesses of every participants and healthy criticism of their work took place to ensure a better and a more confident debating session. Later, the girls were given sheets of paper with thirty word puzzles to be solved with in ten minutes. Every puzzle could be solved with a proverb, idiom or a figurative usage in English. Both these activities were highly appreciated by the girls. As is the practise, the winners were honoured and appreciated for their efforts. 
 
The literary club has been an immense success, leaving all the girls eager to  join next year to participate in all the fun filled and exciting activities.
