Poetry for a cause!

Primary wing students of Apeejay School, Noida recite poems highlighting the reuse and recycling of plastic



Students must be given ample opportunities to display their talent, to express themselves, to develop a sense of positive self-esteem and confidence. Apeejay School, Noida has always promoted a spirit of healthy competition amongst the students so that they learn from one another and get the best out of each other in the process. In line with the aforementioned thought, the primary department of the school recently organised an ‘English poetry recitation competition’ for students of Class 3.

The students recited inspiring and thought provoking poems on the topic – ‘Plastic free Earth – Reclaiming nature’s worth’. They put forth their views about saving the environment by reducing the consumption of single use plastic and preventing pollution of the environment by reiterating the 5R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse and Repurpose.

The finalist students were selected from each section of Class 3 through a fun preliminary round, wherein all students enthusiastically participated and recited their poems on the given topic.

The young finalists exuded confidence during the final round. Their recitation impressed the judges immensely who praised their talent and speaking skills a lot.

The students were judged by a team of judges on the basis of their voice modulation, diction, content, expression, presentation, confidence and use of props.

Primary Incharge, Mrs. Smriti Samuel appreciated the efforts of all finalists and boosted their morale. She then congratulated the winners for their impressive performances. Atishi Bansal from class 3-C won the first position while the second position was bagged by Anshita Upadhyay of class 3-F.
