Students of the Literature and Drama Club of grade 6 to 8 of Choithram School participated in a videoconference with students of Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Kyzylorda, Kazakhstan on November 22, 2023 delving on the topic ‘Books and Beyond: Our Favourite Reads and Characters’. During the session, students from both schools had the opportunity to discuss their favourite books and the characters within them. Students showcased their respective books, sharing their personal insights and reflections about what they learned from reading these books. The experience served as a powerful reminder that books play a vital role in nourishing not just the mind, but also the heart and soul. Activities like these provide students with the opportunity to meet peers from other parts of the world and create a global classroom environment that can help overcome inevitable language barriers, develop communication skills, and foster mutual understanding among nations.
