P. A. N. D. E. S. Workshop 2023
We are excited to share the details of the PANDES Workshop conducted by Ms. Panthea Goonethillake, an interactive and engaging workshop aimed at students from Primary 3 to Form 4. The workshop took place during school hours throughout the month of March.
The workshop focused on three key aspects: Public Speaking, Effective Reading, and Storytelling. Students had the opportunity to enhance their skills in these areas and gain valuable knowledge. We are proud to inform you that all students who completed the course received an internationally recognized certificate, acknowledging their dedication and achievements.
The primary and upper sections of the workshop commenced. Students were introduced to the essential elements of stage performance, including the do’s and don’ts. They learned techniques for poetry recitation and discovered the significance of expressions, intonation, and voice projection. Additionally, students were introduced to effective storytelling techniques, enhancing their ability to captivate an audience.
Building on the previous day’s learnings, students began with a reinforcement of the poem recitation from Day 1. They then delved into the importance of reading and were taught the proper way to hold a book. A team-building activity ensued, where students collaborated in groups to arrange a poetry puzzle, fostering teamwork and problem-solving skills.
During this day, the juniors focused on practicing facial expressions and pacing while reciting their poems on stage, allowing them to convey emotions effectively. The seniors were challenged with delivering a speech on the theme of friendship. They were guided in mastering the techniques of delivering a compelling speech, equipping them with essential communication skills.
Day 3 & 4:
The final days of the workshop were filled with evaluations. Students had the opportunity to showcase their progress and demonstrate the skills they had acquired throughout the workshop. As part of the evaluation process, students submitted all their documents and work neatly filed, ensuring organization and attention to detail.
We are immensely proud of all the students who participated in the PANDES Workshop and commend their dedication and enthusiasm. The workshop not only provided valuable skills but also fostered personal growth and confidence. We extend our congratulations to all the students who successfully completed the course and received their internationally recognized certificates.
