While the focus of formal education is mostly on curriculum-based subjects, it is equally important for the Educational Institution to focus on the student’s overall development as a good citizen as well as a successful professional. For this, it is important to develop the life skills and character of the student, which include support/guidance for development of Thinking Skills, Social/Interpersonal Skills, Emotional Skills and Awareness on various subjects like health, environment etc
All these subjects/skills’ training are delivered to the students through carefully designed programs by LifePrep, which are interactive and activity-based.

Storytelling as a learning tool encourages students to explore their unique expressiveness. It also increases a student’s ability to communicate his/her thoughts and feelings clearly. This requires only the power of listening and speaking along with imagination of the student and nothing else.

Creative Writing is definitely a means for students to unleash the power of their creativity. It is also a proven way to improve language learning. Not many students will earn a living as a writer as they grow up. But writing is important as the ability to communicate effectively is of utmost importance for every student to progress in his/her careers in future. The knowledge they gain from the experiences in their creative writing activities lasts a lifetime.
We have heard many times about the “I have a dream” speech of Martin Luther King. We also know the importance of the “Gettysberg address” in Abraham Lincoln’s march towards Presidency.

Their speeches have been instrumental in uniting people and inspiring great change. But is public speaking skills just about delivering speeches ? How is it important for all of us in everyday life ?
