Role play in education is a highly effective learning technique often used in classrooms to combine education with creativity. It engages students by providing them real-world scenarios in order to help them imbibe skills used in real-life situations. It also provides students the opportunity to harness their observation and acting skills.

Taking this technique forward, a virtual inter-class Hindi Role-play competition was conducted among class 4 students at Apeejay School Noida on November 15. The objective of the competition was to enhance the self-confidence and presentation skills of the students. It provided students with a platform to polish their oratory skills.

 The theme chosen for the competition was: ‘Great personalities of India’. The event witnessed an enthusiastic response from the students. Resplendent in their costumes, students waited eagerly for their turn to perform as they emulated renowned Indian personalities with passion and precision. The enactment of prominent personalities such as Swami Vivekananda, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Mahatma Gandhi, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Indira Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Saina Nehwal and Kalpana Chawla, among others, was a visual treat for the teachers of the school.

Ms. Ruby Bhatnagar, Head of Hindi department and Ms. Shahana Parveen, Hindi teacher (middle school) presided as judges for the competition. Their parameters for adjudication were: content, pronunciation, enactment, costume and presentation skills.

Sonam Preet Kaur, a student of class 4-E, bagged the first position in the competition. She mesmerised the audience with her poignant depiction of Bhagat Singh. Himali Kashyap of class 4-G secured the second position. Her powerful portrayal of Rani Lakshmi Bai impressed the judges as well as students.
