Indian Muslims Welfare Association (IMWA) EDUMEET 2015 was conducted at Salmiya Indian Model School on 15th May 2015. EDUMEET is an opportunity for Indian students to demonstrate their talents in the arena of public speaking and essay writing. The hall was filled with enthusiastic students, parents, teachers and IMWA members. The program was hosted by Mr. Mohammed Osama and Ms. Kiren Mohammed Khalid. The event comprised of essay writing competition and inter-school debate competition.

The event started by the recitation of the holy Quran by Mr. Mohammed Adeel and the English translation by Ms. Summayya Parveen. This was followed by the essay writing competition. Essay writing participants were divided into three groups i.e. Group A (Class VII – VIII), Group B (Class IX – X) and Group C (Class XI – XII). Each group was given a separate topic with a time limit of 30 minutes and maximum 250 words. A panel of six eminent judges was given the tough task of marking the essays and selecting the winners from each group as the debate was going on.

This was followed by the debate competition. Thirteen schools sent in two talented contestants each to participate in debate on the topic “Academic excellence is an overrated parameter for a successful career” one student for the motion and the other, against. A panel of three eminent adjudicators evaluated the participants’ performance simultaneously. Mrs. Moli Divakaran Deputy Head of English department at Australian College of Kuwait an educationist with over 25 years of teaching experience. Dr. Sabiha Bilgrami from Kuwait University who is the president of Kuwait Leaders Toastmasters Clup and Eng. Surya Prakash from KOC.

Mohammad Zahid.

 

After each participant had concluded their speech the judges were given time to ask questions relevant to the case they had put across. The Debate contest was tough but fully enjoyed by all present. Self confidence, presentation skills, body language and performance on stage revealed the abundant talent existing in our young children. Debate is a challenge even for seasoned orators but the twenty six debate participants took up this challenge and demonstrated their public speaking skills. They had the audience spellbound by convincingly expressing their point of view, citing excellent examples and their presence of mind and preparation in answering the judge’s questions.


FIMA President Mr. Siddeeque Valiyakath in his speech mentioned that the debate competition is very useful for preparing students for their future career and he thanked IMWA for conducting such events.
