Someone has rightly said ‘Poetry is the best way to express oneself’ and expressing oneself, gives joy.

Springdales is a creative energizing force that fosters growth by providing a platform for each student to confidently express himself/ herself, be it poetry, dance or drama.

Moving ahead with this idea, the junior school organized an Inter House Choral Recitation Competition on 10th May 2019 for the eight houses in which around three hundred students took part. This year the poetry recitation was in Hindi. It was an auditory as well as visual treat as the poems were recited with proper expression, voice modulation and intonation, using different colourful props. Each poem had a message, be it ‘Bandar ayaa ghar ke andar’, ‘Paani ki Shaitaani’, ‘Aao phir bachpan ji lien’, ‘Lagan’, ‘Daastaane kaagaz kalam’, ‘Daya ka phal meetha,’ ‘Khilone bol uthey, or ‘Ye dil maange more’. The poems conveyed few important messages i.e importance of hard work, letting the animals live in their forests, saving water and healthy eating.

The judges Mr. Udayan Banerjee , Mrs Soma Banerjee and Mrs. Sunita Seth were highly impressed by the performances and appreciated the efforts put in by the teachers and the students.
