Labuan International School (LIS) recently organised an English Language Carnival. Included in the carnival was: a choral speaking competition, a public speaking competition and a formal debate. LIS students came second place in The Choral Speaking Competition, achieved second and third place in The Debate and won third place in The Public Speaking Competition.
The Carnival attracted eighteen participants for The Public Speaking Competition, four schools for The Debate and three schools for The Choral Speaking Competition, including the host: Labuan International School.
LIS Principal, Zainab Batin, said participation in the competition itself benefited the children in many ways. They learnt how to address fears and confront insecurities by rising to challenges; develop the right mentality towards facing challenges; practice sportsmanship and graciousness as well as further their communication and social skills. She added: “LIS will continue to hold events, not just merely to create champions, but as a good platform to develop excellent personalities in our students”.
