“The only thing you have to fear is fear itself.”
Fired with enthusiasm and drawing inspiration from the chapter ‘Deep Water’ in their English textbook, the students of Class XII presented an excellent assembly on the theme ‘Conquering your Fears’.
Knowing how fond children are of listening to stories, the senior most class of the school began the assembly by narrating the motivating tale of a boy’s journey to overcome his fear of water.
A five step guide in the form of a Power Point Presentation was shared to help the audience overcome their fears. The five step strategy involved identifying one’s fears, taking the first step, approaching family and friends for help, staying motivated and to keep challenging oneself.
What made it an interesting presentation was that the examples cited were from the day-to-day lives of the students. A couple of students also shared their success stories about how they not only faced, but also overcame their fears.
The assembly concluded on a sweet and melodious note with the musical rendition of the song ‘Fear, by Blue October’.
