KPMG volunteers, as part of the KPMG Family For Literacy (KFFL) programme spent the day at school helping our children with Spoken English. 

The event, as reported by Ms Susan, our English teacher:

                                      The KPMG/KFFL report.

The KPMG Volunteers  started their spoken English classes for this academic year,
on Saturday the 24th June 2017, for the seventh and the eighth
students. It was held in the sixth standard classroom.
The volunteers straight away plunged into the game.

The students had to make difficult words out of the 
alphabets given. 

The students were divided into two groups.
The most difficult words were given fifty points. 

The game produced fun,laughter and noise. One of theKPMG volunteers gave chocolates
to all the winners who could coin the best word.

Everybody participated and time flew! It was both exciting and thrilling.

Finally the game ended with the counting of the points.

Group A was declared winner and the class ended with a lot of cheers and claps.
Another exciting class by the KPMG.
