Q4. (c1) Speech Writing – 4 Marks
1] As a class representative, write a speech about „The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020‟ in 120 words.
Good Morning, honorable guests, respected teachers and my dear friends. As a class representative I, have come before you all to talk about „The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020‟. Friends, education is the most important national activity. Really to it is the backbone of a country’s progress. It helps to strengthen the very fabric of nation. Do you know? the Union Cabinet approved the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 after 34 years which was launched in 1986.
According to NEP, the 10+2 structure of school curricula will be replaced by a 5+3+3+4 curricular structure. First 5 years means foundation stage in which 3 years of preprimary and std. first and second come, where there will be no books and exams. Second 3 years means std. 3, 4 & 5 where students can take math, language, science and art. The third -3 years means std. 6, 7& 8 where students will learn computer coding and designing mobile applications.
Now listen friends, I am giving you information about our age group. That is about the last 4 years in which std. 9, 10, 11 & 12 will be included. Now there will be no streams like art, commerce and science. Any student can take any subject. Exams will be in two semesters. The first half course will be in first semester and after 6 months second semester on the remaining course. Which is very beneficial for the students, they would not have to study the whole syllabus. The examinations will be objective and descriptive.
Friends, here the policy has given importance to the mother tongue. Our system of education has often been called now outdated, but now I hope this policy will build a new powerful India. Thank you very much friends for listening me. Jai Hind!
