Good morning respected judges, my worthy opponents, My colleagues and audience,

I (your name) hereby standing for the motion that says religious studies should be made compulsory for students in secondary schools and if I have your permission I would like to begin by defining religious studies. Religious studies also known as the study of religion , is an academic field devoted to research into religious beliefs, behaviors , and institutions. It describes, compares, interprets, and explains religion, emphasizing systematic, historically based, and cross-cultural perspectives.

From The above definition it is obvious that religious studies is of great important and should be made compulsory in secondary schools with The following points of mine.

Firstly, One of the most common importance of Religious teachings is that it helps students understand the place of various religions in our society. It helps them resolve the important questions of their own inner self and this understanding contributes to a more just and cohesive society.

Secondly, Religious education in any school should not simply be a subject making up a proportion of the taught curriculum.

It needs to pervade the congenial environment in the school. Such an environment is not just good for the school but also for the society as a whole as well primarily because students are themselves the propagators of moral values and these are the values that are the most valued and cherished for the quality of relationships amongst the whole humanity.

By listening and responding to stories from religious traditions, students are assimilating it as part of their personal, social and emotional development. They have opportunities to take part in celebrations and special events whilst using their understanding in communication, language and literacy. Utilising artefacts, music, stories and art from varying cultures helps them in increasing their knowledge and understanding of the world increases as they ask questions about religion, culture and worship and develop attitudes of curiosity and respect.

Thirdly, It introduces students to different cultures and religions through various learning about stories, people, places and times of special importance, and artefacts and beliefs that are part of modern life and society. Students are encouraged to respond sensitively to all religions, traditions and cultures, using their imagination and sense of wonder. I believe I have confused you enough with my points. Their study of faiths develops appropriate, secular view of the world and a religious community with a significant local presence. Thank You.

Once upon a time there lived a carefree and complacent young man named, Jagu. He had high dreams but low actions. He often dreamed and boasted that one day he will amaze the world with his feats. His father was a very wise man. He wanted to put some sense in him. He wanted to instil in him that if he wanted to be successful, he must work for it. So, he made a plan to teach his lesson. He took the help of a fortuneteller.

He sent him to Jagu. The fortuneteller said to Jagu. “I am a famous fortuneteller; I know something big is going to happen in your life on the first day of the next
month. Take this flower and keep it with you.” Jagu was quite excited to get the flower from the fortuneteller.

He went home and told the incident that success was coming his way. He will prove it
to the world on the first day of the next month. He told all his friends and relatives. Everyone was curious to see as to what would happen on the first day of the next month. The most excited person was Jagu himself. The night before the first day of the next month he could not sleep. And the next morning as he woke
up, he found the day to be as normal as the other days had been. No news of any success came. The day came and just went ordinarily. Jagu became quite dejected.

At the right time his father came and told Jagu, “Success does not come with dreaming and predictions, you have to work hard and win it and create it. Go out, and create your own success
with efforts.” Jagu learnt the lesson and stopped counting his chickens before they were hatched.
