With the advancement of technology, it is a no-brainer that we are tuning into the slaves of communication gadgets. Kids and school children are increasingly suffering from isolation and losing out on interpersonal skills. To ensure kids get a real feel of one-on-one interaction, book reading, enacting characters from novels and in the process hone up their real time much needed communication skills, the Headway, d’ intel club had organized an intensive four day communication and book reading workshop that ended with the event “The Headway Intel. Confer’ today.
The workshop was attended by kids and teens from many major schools of Guwahati including Shankar Academy, Maria, Royal Global amongst others.
“Kids got a real time feel of togetherness, creativity and fun while learning. Competition has increased so much and we are from the outskirts of the city and as such our kids are often left out. I am happy to see my kid get a real time feel of stage presence and limelight,” said Ms.Dritshmita, an enthusiastic mother who had travelled all the way from Sualkuchi to get daughter to attend this workshop.
“We are striving to groom the children of the city for the global stage and hence we haven’t restricted participation of kids only from the privileged background. There was free participation of underprivileged backgrounds including kids of Parijat academy.”
Kids performed masterfully a skit depicting characters from Greek Mythology using flawless dialogues.There was intense debate session on the heated topic “Guwahati is not ready for a smart city”. The children showed a great enthusiasm in speaking for and against the motion placing smart arguments.They were extensively trained on how to make a great stage presence and overcome public speaking and stage anxiety.
“It is wonderful to see how well the children spoke, debated anchored. These activities reminded me of my school days and my early days as a child actor, said noted anchor and actor TinatAsifaMassod who was one of the main guests.
Neetu Sarawgi Founder of Headway expressed satisfaction on the successful completion of the workshop. Addressing students, she motivated them to embrace the leadership qualities of a Lion so as to become future leaders of new India.
With a sole target to groom the kids beyond school curriculum, Headway, d’ intel club would also organize several workshops in the near future including an extensive theatre workshop for the children.
