At present, we have a vast number of resources to obtain knowledge and information which we as individuals can learn, understand and criticize for the betterment of our society. The Interact Club of Little Angel’s School has brought forward a platform to share opinions on one of the under-emphasized topics in today’s context: “Education and Religion”.
1) To get vast opinions on the current education system and religious values.
2) Encouraging participation and public speaking.
3) Raising specific issues and questions regarding how religion influences education.
In the beginning, the event started with a few good engaging words from the emcee, Itr. Savyata Bohora and after, national anthems of Nepal and Bhutan followed by the Rotary anthem. Then the welcoming remarks were given by President Itr. Sinchu Bhurtel and after the emcee acknowledged our advisors.
The emcee introduced the host club briefly while attendees listened patiently. After that our Secretary, Itr. Rajaswi Ghimire gave a speech on “Is the religious impact on education a parody?” followed by our guest speaker Itr. Samyam Aryal’s speech on “The history of religion and education” from Himalayan White House College, is also a debate enthusiast. Since it was a platform for a symposium, the floor was open for any ahead discussion on religion and education where participants gave their opinions and shared their experiences on the topic. Not long after the informal talks and joyous interactions, the vote of thanks was given by the President. The emcee then signed off, ending the event.
The event opened doors for several people to share their opinions on the platform provided to them without being equivocated for their perspective on the topic which met the target.
