Celebrating Roald Dahl Day – A Literary Club activity
–Ms Ashwini Gupte
Mumbai, Sept. 23: The British children’s fiction author, novelist and screenplay writer, Roald Dahl was the literary figure celebrated by the English Literary Club of Don Bosco High School, Matunga.
The day began with a dialogue based presentation between the teacher and the students in order to help students get to know this great writer and to stay inspired by him. The interiors of the school displayed charts giving information on the man and his works. Students were encouraged to go through the charts, and also viewed a video and a power point presentation in each of the classrooms, from class V to class X.
The Roald Dahl Quiz was thereafter conducted by Literary Club members in the Conference Room of the school, for students from classes V to X. The results were as follows-
FIRST PLACE – STD X
SECOND PLACE – STD IX
THIRD PLACE – STD VI
Winners were congratulated and awarded certificates of appreciation.
“It all came about due to the interest shown by the club members to share the knowledge acquired by them on this great writer. Having sensed the need, the activity gained momentum by way of ideas and implementation of the same in order to see that the day was celebrated meaningfully,” shared Mrs. Elizabeth Soares, Literary Club coordinator.
