Morning assemblies are moments to reflect, learn and inspire. On 9th of February, 2021 students of Grade XI recommended books to their peers during the assembly. This motivated all others including teachers to read books. The discussion carried on the entire day, inquiring, “What’s in your bag?” a probing question for like minded people to inquire the other’s current read.
“I was a part of the book recommendation and the experience of it was wonderful, starting from reading the book to recommending the book I enjoyed every moment of it. I am grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to more of these.

“It was exciting recommending one of my all time favourites to my peers. Talking about the book also provided me insights as to why I came to like it and gave me a solid opinion on books I would love to read in the future. I would love to recommend other favourites from my reading list another time. I also thank the teachers for giving me this opportunity.

It was exciting recommending one of my all time favourites to my fellow mates. Talking about the book helped me gain confidence and reading about the book helped me to gain a new perspective in life. I would like to recommend my other favourites too. I also want to thank the teachers for giving me this opportunity.

My experience on presenting a book recommendation on The Kite Runner (by Khaled Hosseini) was eye-opening. I learned the basics of condensing a long, detailed plot into a few highlighted points. This made character analysis a lot easier, and I was able to pinpoint certain shortcomings in the book. Presenting the work helped alleviate my anxiety/stage fear, and I am now more confident about public speaking. I look forward to presenting more recommendations in the future.
