Smart Indian School (SIS) inaugurated Gavel club on 25 January, 2017. Gavel Club is an affiliate of Toastmasters International, the leading movement devoted to make effective oral communication, a world-wide reality. This program helps the participants in overcoming nervousness while before an audience, organize and present ideas logically and convincingly and participate in and even lead discussions or meetings.
A prayer song and lighting of the lamp to invoke the blessings of the Almighty set the perfect beginning for yet another memorable day. The event was kicked off with an inspiring welcome address by the Smart Indian School Principal, Mahesh Iyer stressing on the need to hone oratorical skills by making the best use of Gavel Club.
The induction ceremony where the officers took their oath and stated their mission as well as a toastmaster’s promise was indeed a sight to behold and to be proud of. A few cultural events added vigour to the formal function. The ceremony came to a halt with a powerful speech by the newly elected President Master Sambhav Jain of grade 7 I A followed by a befitting vote of thanks by Master Binuka of 6 I A, the Vice President Education.
