Theme: ‘Celebration of Two Apostles of Peace and Non- Violence’
Department of Information Technology organized Elocution Competition for the students on Nelson Mandela’s birthday under the theme ‘Celebration of Two Apostles of Peace and Non- Violence’. Mandela Day calls on us all, every day, to make the world a better place. Each year on 18 July, 2018. We look back on what has been done and forward to what will be done. Making every day a Mandela Day celebrates Madiba’s life and legacy in a sustainable way that will bring about enduring change.
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela.
Students individually participated to deliver speech about the life of Nelson Mandela. The competition judges evaluated students how the story an entrant tells, and how students relate Nelson Mandela’s story, including his personal and political story, to their own lives. For example, this may involve exploration of links to local struggles for social justice that students are aware of today. Students form S.E., T.E. and B.E. participated in the competition.
