21 Jan The joy of reading: KGiSL celebrated books with a Read-a-thon on January 5th, 2019

On January 5, 2019, the KGiSL Institute of Technology campus in Sarvanampatti hosted 200 odd students from 25 schools for a Read-a-thon. The aim of the Read-a-thon was to inculcate a love for reading by introducing books to children between 5th and 8th standards. The event lasted 7.5 hours from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

This Read-a-thon saw students reading books ranging from Famous Five and Nancy Drew to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Most students came to the event with their own books while others could pick books provided by the organizers.
In an encouraging sign for the future of books and book lovers in Coimbatore, many students wanted to register on the spot for the Read-a-thon.

In addition to reading books, students could also compete to win prizes for the Best Blurb, Best Stage Presentation, and Best Visual Presentation. The idea behind these prizes is to encourage creativity, public speaking, and presentation skills in participants. The ability to summarize a document in a few short words or Powerpoint slides is an essential career skill for students.

Students between class 5 and class 8th who missed this event but wish to participate in next year’s (2020’s) Read-a-thon should reach out to Arvind Rajendran via email at aravind@kgkite.ac.in or phone @ 95973-99689.

The results of the contests are as follows. Thank you to all participants for sharing your thoughts with us.

SNO.
