English is the most commonly spoken language in the world, used by different industries such as media and the internet. Storytelling is the important cultural activity conveying stories in words, often with improvisation, theatrics or embellishments. On September 15, 2018, Stamford School will hold its seventh annual English Storytelling Contest, entitled Speaking from the Heart, to celebrate and encourage the use of the English language to entertain through storytelling. After six successful events, Speaking from the Heart has become an important Bandung tradition which attracts contestants from all over the city.
Storytelling sparks emotions and helps us make sense of people and the world around us. It forms an important part in developing the child’s overall personality, encouraging creativity, imagination and confidence. The ability to stand onstage and entertain, move and affect an audience is a valuable skill for children to develop. Stamford School organised Speaking from the Heart on an annual basis to promote the development of these important skills.
