Themed, ‘English: Language of the Unified Humanity’, the students from KG, Primary and Secondary levels took part in a multitude of activities viz., Show and Tell, Tongue Twisters competition, Storytelling, Elocution contest, TED Talk, Word Game, Poster-making contest, etc.

The event aimed to encourage the students to hone their communicative ability in the second language, at the same time to be cognizant of the current events ranging from climate change and global warming, population explosion, urban growth to name a few.

Simultaneously, the KG department organized a Pyjama Day to stir the small children’s love for reading and to enhance their imagination through story-telling.

The acting principal, Mr. Joseph Sarmiento urged the students to utilize English language to understand the world in deeper and more meaningful ways. With the activity, he expressed his hopes to open the students’ minds to new ideas, perspectives and interpretations.

Meanwhile, the Head of the English Department, Mr. Leonardo English reminded the students that language should not be a barrier in communication. Ergo, English language, communication, and humanities being greatly intertwined should bring people together, he said.
