A specially designed activity catered us in forming teams among the kids and a mentor was assigned to each team. Each Mentor guided their team throughout the day.
This activity was a perfect icebreaker as students tried to express their views on various topics. Mentors listened to the 'for' and 'against' views of the students on a particular topic and gave them the much needed feedback for their betterment.
In an effort to make students realize the importance of motivation, the speaker conveyed several aspects of motivation. The speaker made it a point to motivate the students to bring out the best in them. Difference aspects of Goal setting were also discussed in this session. Several interesting activities were embedded in the talk to deliver the content to students.
Activities and games were conducted to teach kids the most valuable lessons in life. These infotainment activities raised the tempo of the event and were helpful in entertaining the students and imparting knowledge.
Student Loans and scholarships:
The students of class 11th and 12th were informed about various education loan facilities and scholarships. The speaker emphasized on the eligibility, process and the ease of getting loans. Students were inspired not to leave their passion just because of financial reasons.
The fun activities continued in this afternoon session too. Students took part enthusiastically in these specially designed games.
