Dear Raconteurs,

We thank each one of you for sharing your thoughts, feelings and ideas and making our school magazine a literary piece of art! A loud shout out to all who made it possible!

Our ideas keep changing, developing and modifying with each passing moment and we don’t want any of these to just drift by.

So let’s get going! We want to ensure that parents and students get optimum time to write for their favorite magazine.

We have shortlisted a few topics to give you a starting point, but you are free to write on any topic of your choice. You can choose to compose a poem, write an article or create a poster/artwork. Parent articles are welcome in Hindi/Gujarati as well. (No hard copies will be accepted)
