Yes, children are well informed about the current affairs and they come up with good write ups. But I won't agree that only these 2K kids are better at writing at younger age. Because I remember participating in an essay competition from 3rd standard. Also, I got 1st prize in 5th grade for writing an essay on POTA act. I had submitted an assignment on Space crafts in 8th grade. The above mentioned are part of our school extra curricular activities. In our school, till August, they concentrate on Sports selection and completions related to it. Then from October to December, they concentrate on school magazine. So various written competitions like Poetry, essay, journals, art, interviews, jokes, etc in 3 languages were conducted. The best of them were selected for the school magazine. Once the school magazine was published in December end, the cultural competitions were given importance in Jan and February. Fancy dress, Singing, Dancing, Debate, Mono act etc were conducted. The best will be selected and performed in School Annual day. Also, we are allowed to participate in inter school competitions.
Thus school days were not just studies. It is full of memories. We are grown with a versatility. These days kids are empowered with social media. We are supported by school and school teachers.
