It enables the cadets to more effortlessly exploit inner talents and in the bargain constructs confidence. Besides helping acquire an abiding interest in literature which would offer companionship for a lifetime. Giving importance to all these points an Inter-House Hindi Poem Recitation Competition was held in the School Auditorium on 13 Feb, 2017 for classes VI, VII and VIII. Each house offered 8 participants, 4 from Class VI and 4 from Classes VII and VIII, 2 from each class respectively. The contestants were well-rehearsed and involved, as it were with the thought and sentiments that their verse was composed of and applied themselves to delivering the same with a special compassion. Poise naturally followed the poignancy of their effort.
