English Handwriting Competition

“Like it or not, even in our machine driven world, people still judge you by your handwriting”
We have heard the argument, “Handwriting is over. It is keyboarding skills all the way.” Of course our students need strong keyboarding and technical skills but handwriting has its own benefits and creates brain connections that can’t be easily replaced. Practicing handwriting is an incredibly important exercise for the children, enabling them to develop fine motor skills, confidence and most importantly their very own style. English Handwriting Competition was conducted on 14th September for the children of class 2 in which all of them participated enthusiastically. They were judged on different criteria’s like punctuation and spellings.
