Virtual Patriotic Song Competition 2021
Gajera International School conducted the Virtual Patriotic Song Competition for learners of grade 1 to 10 on 14 August, 2021.To expose our students to music, while also enhancing their language and presentation skills. Music ignites all areas of student’s development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Patriotic songs are songs that demonstrate love for one’s country, or have themes that glorify self-sacrifice, land’s beauty, history or ideals.
The learners of GISU prepared well for the competition and a wide range of songs were presented. While the choice of songs ranged from the patriotic to the popular, it was interesting that each learner had worked hard to comprehend the lyrics and sing the songs with conviction. Their songs invoked a strong sense of patriotism in each one who listened. The room was resplendent with a feeling of belonging and pride. We discovered potential talent in singing from amongst our learners and are very optimistic that these learners will bring glory to the school in the future. All the participants performed exceptionally well, winning certificates for their performance. The competition gave a lot of encouragement and confidence to the performers and to all the learners present on the virtual classroom.
The judges were Mrs. Deepika Dodiya and Tarulata Patel speak a few words of advice for improvement and of encouragement. The young and gifted singers had won the hearts of the judges, who was overwhelmed by their singing skills and preparation. This was followed by the announcing of the winners, amidst thunderous applauding. The confidence, expression and talent of the learners made the event truly memorable.
