Participating in the LAMDA Exams.

For the past few years, children in the elementary and primary classes have taken part in the Lamda Verse and Prose speech examinations. The exams involve learning and reciting a poem and having a short discussion with the examiner. The children are graded on their ability to recite the poems and on their communication skills. It is an excellent experience for the children, in which they have enjoyed taking part in  and have received high grades and distinctions. We find that this participation does wonders for their confidence and the two classes take part every year.
