“Hide not your talents, they for use were made, What's a sundial in the shade?” Says Benjamin Franklin
Every artist was first an amateur. Talent is something that makes you excel in a task more than someone else. If you are naturally good at something, you have got the talent for it. Talent Hunt is one such event, which gives a platform to students to represent their talents in any field. Keeping this in mind, Fr. Sunil Cornelio, Headmaster of SJV School organized on 23rd July 2022 a virtual ‘Show your talent ‘session for all the students. Students participated enthusiastically and exhibited their talent in various activities. Some sang songs, some showcased their foot-tapping moves, while others narrated stories or recited rhymes. The students staged spectacular performances in colorful attires using fascinating props and backdrops making all parents and their teachers spellbound. These events not only nurture the intrinsic qualities of students but also remove stage fear in them, which helps in their personality development. Special efforts were made to enhance the talent of those students who have a natural flair for music, dance, drama, art, craft, etc to bring out their hidden talent.
