Students from the SMB Fatima Jinnah Government Girls School participated in the Inter-School Speech Competition held on the morning of the 14th December 2011 at the Pilot Government High Secondary School. The goal of the competition was to develop in the youth of Pakistan a passion for their country, to make them aware of Islamic values and to inculcate in them a drive to make Pakistan a stable, progressive, confident and self-reliant nation.
A total of 75 students participated and the level of competition was very high. The students who were representing Fatima Jinnah School were Rabia Mehmood Alam of Class 9 and Savera Abdul Razzaq from Class 5. They generally enjoyed the competition and found it to be a great learning experience.
Rabia, from Class 9, was glad she got the opportunity to participate in such a contest: “I really enjoyed it,” she said. “The competition was tough, with most students making very good speeches. I learned a lot from this contest overall.”
The students expressed their feelings and opinions about Pakistan very skillfully.
Both the audience and the teachers were impressed by the presentations and lauded the efforts of the students.
Fatima Jinnah School’s Savera Abdul Razzaq from Class 5 also felt the competition helper her become more confident and gave her the opportunity to learn from her mistakes.
