“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
Debate is one of the academic activities that allows us to consider the world around us by thinking about different arguments, engaging with opposing views and speaking strategically. Sri VIS has set a benchmark in conducting these activities in such a way that students not only enjoy but also learn a great deal from it.
One such activity was the Inter-House Debate Competition for the students of Class 8 , which motivated the students to express their views with wit and confidence.
The teams got 45 minutes to prepare and put forth their arguments and they used various skills like overstatement, definition, rhetoric, irony etc. to convince the audience.
The participants exhibited great oratory skills. They enjoyed the hard work needed for presenting their arguments before the audience.
The adjudication for the event was done by :
Ms Vineet Tomer - Middle Wing Coordinator ,
Ms Vineeta - Senior Wing Coordinator and
Ms Neeru Dhamija - HOD(English).
The Guest of Honour and School Principal, Ms Nita Arora , addressed the students and appreciated the audience, the teams of debaters and the organising mentors.
