Nepalese Association of Victoria (NAV) is a community organization representing all the Nepali origin people throughout Victoria. So, NAV has formally promised to launch a series of interesting programs during its tenure. They are very excited to announce their 2nd promising program “Festival Celebration & Speech Contest”.
Moreover, the Nepalese Association of Victoria has announced another academic program and Cultural program for the school children & all the Nepali from Australia. The program includes the celebration of Festivals & Cultural performances from various artists. These are the greatest festival of the Nepali people.
The main aim of this program is to teach the basic knowledge of our first language, culture, and religion for our kids. If we can include our children within the environment of multi-language, multi-culture, and bi-lingual society, only then they can easily fit in the multicultural society.
The children’s speech contest event is only about Dashain & Tihar. The contestant has been divided into two aged groups: one is from 6 to 11 years and another one is from 12 to 16 years. Each participant has been given 3 minutes of time to deliver their speech. Apart from this, there is an evaluation committee of five members who are known as community leaders and scholars.
There is a provision of an attractive cash prize for the first, second, and third winners from both groups. Similarly, the cultural program represents a collaborative study of how to dance performances can enhance curriculum subjects such as history, language arts, physical education, geography, and culture.
Cultural dances can provide children creative opportunities to learn about multicultural aspects. The cultural program is performed in between the speech competition by various well-known artists. There will be the participation of children from various Nepali schools too. NAV says that they are very glad to have them with us to showcase their talent in this program. A cultural program is mainly for entertainment only. So, they do not have any competition for the cultural programs, it purely to showcase our culture and tradition.
The delivery method of all the program is completely online via Zoom and Facebook Live. The whole program is going to be held on Saturday 24 October 2020, from 5 pm onwards. The Nepalese Association of Victoria (NAV) is very much excited and would like to request all Nepali people residing in Victoria to participate in the coming program to make it a grand success.
