School Libraries are usually the initial step towards the reading habit that would last till our later ages in life. Reading is considered to foster communication skills and become learners all time. They get an exposure to variety of texts and thereby triggered to the habit of reading. If adequate time is not spent in Library, the acquisition of knowledge would be limited to classroom and textbooks alone.
School days are the right time and age for any student to inculcate the habit of wide reading. Gradually the habit would make you read variety of books that would update you with knowledge and maturity. As an initial step, go on search of variety of subjects in the Library and find out what subject particularly retains your attention. Get to read more and more books in that area. Get a membership from your local public library and go ahead extracting your interests.
Once you get to know the feeling of pleasure that a new book could give you and then you are in the right path. Books are boons which wouldn’t desert us at any critical stage of our life. Yuvabharathi Public School has an efficient library that could hold hundred children at a time. There are varied type of books appropriate to age.

Do you hear your heartbeat rising and feel your palms wetting and a strange knotting feeling inside your stomach whenever you address a handful of people? Whether ten or hundred, it is a much common thing that happens when there is a crowd to listen you. But overcoming this stage fear is an important step in your learning process. A confident and fluent speaker might have crossed this fear as well. Getting yourself used to crowds and their behaviour would definitely help you become a great public speaker.
Here are some easy ways that help students overcome stage fear:
- Always take a chance to read or recite in the stage whenever you get a chance to do so. This practice would help you make yourself comfortable on stage
- Be thoroughly prepared on the topic. The basic reason for fear is whether you will present your points clearly. When you get the subject inside out, nearly half of fear is reduced
- Always think positive, rehearse number of times and imagine your success now and then
- Drop your inhibitions and dare to do something out of your comfort zone
After all, remember everyone in the audience would also be fearful when asked to perform. Practice makes you perfect and cheerful speaker. The schools play a major role in training its students to be comfortable to speak publicly. Yuvabharathi Public School conducts a lot of activities that make students shed their stage fear. Apart from various club activities, the school conducts skits, speech and various other stage performances every week on a particular topic in the assembly each Monday.
