NOIDA, 25 AUGUST, 2018 - Books are a man's best friend and so is reading. Nothing in life can give one the satisfaction of being completely alone yet surrounded by so many people in the world of books. Knowledge attained from books is incomparable to any form of manual learning, and Global Indian International School (GIIS), Noida students know exactly how to utilize books for learning things no one else can teach them.
Promoting the habit of reading books, an interactive story telling session in association with Scholastic India was organized for grades 1 -2 students of the school. Mr. Sanjay Muttoo presided the occasion as the guest scholar for the day; the activity served as an ideal opportunity for the students to inculcate a habit of reading books and becoming good listeners.
Mr Sajay Muttoo - Assistant Professor in deptt. of Journalism, Kamla Nehru College, New Delhi, has studied History at St. Stephens College, Delhi University and mass communications at the Mass Communications research centre, Jamia Millia Islamia University. He is passionate about the art of storytelling and has been conducting workshops for children in primary schools across North India.
In his session for the youngest primary students, he narrated couple of stories in the most fantastic and fun loving manner. He used various vocal sounds and mimicry to make the story listening process more interesting and enjoyable for the students. Each story had a moral value attached which our students understood as they got fully involved in the session. Laughter and happiness was in the air as the youngest seniors of the school learned few important lessons for life.
The story telling session was a great success; our students got all the more excited and bucked up to read more books every-day and make reading a routine habit in their lives.
