MONSOON MUSINGS

MONSOON MUSINGS

Dear All,

Students of IBDP Year 1 and 2 have taken an interesting project for CAS. Monsoon Musings…!

Monsoon Musings is a student-led Poetry Event that intends to give budding writers (students, staff, parents and grandparents) an opportunity to express their ideas – in the form of poems and tiny tales.

In addition to the poetry event, as part of our CAS activity, we introduce Seva Cafe – a unique concept where we serve food during the poetry reading and people can pay whatever amount they think is right. We will also put up Art Stalls which will display various exquisite Artworks which can be sold by the Creator of that art piece. The proceedings of every part of the event will go to charity, including the sales of Art installations.

 

We welcome all the senior school students and their parents (along with grandparents) to showcase their potential as a writer – in English, Hindi or Gujarati. So, here is your chance to express yourself and be heard.

 

Students interested in participation can fill up this form below to let us know which particular event they want to participate in. They may also directly send their Poem or Tiny tales to monsoon.musings@fountainheadschools.org latest by 20th August, 2018.

Form link : https://goo.gl/Y3bHkG

Parents and grandparents can directly send entries to monsoon.musings@fountainheadschools.org in English, Hindi or Gujarati.

There will be sifting of content for offensive language or profanity – both of which will automatically make your work liable for rejection.

We look forward to having your valuable creation as part of adding to the beauty of the event.

Why wait and be late? Just pen down your ideas and emotions and send your entries at the earliest.

We thank you in anticipation.

 

Date :   Saturday 1st September, 2018

Venue: Atrium (Poetry/Story reading), Rendezvous (Seva cafe and Art displays).

              Note: Venue of the event in school may change based on the weather conditions on the day of  the event.

Time:   9.00 am to 11.00 am

Regards,

IBDP Students.
