‘Reading is the way to expand the mind, open the eyes and the best way to fill the heart.’ Presidium Sonepat organised a Picture reading competition to inculcate the habit of reading. Reading stretches the child’s mind and introduces him/her to the a world of wonder that is literature. The competition encouraged students to practice pronunciation and listen to others. The children realised that the pictures offered many facets, that of suspense, entertainment and information and they were filled with a new curiosity. They read out their stories with clear articulation, correct accentuation and voice modulation. The aim of honing their reading skills was very well achieved and they deserved every bit of appreciation and encouragement. The children in the were highly delighted.
