 Bangalore: The Global Indian International School (GIIS), Whitefield recently celebrated its annual Literary Week, which marks a week of literary celebration. The event was aimed at promoting the love for literature and creative expression among students from CBSE Grades 1st to 8th and CAIE grades 6th to 9th. The first day of the event began with an inaugural speech by author Ms. Menaka Raman, where she addressed the audience about the importance of literature culture, along with sharing many innovative and engaging techniques to express thoughts, ideas and stories.

The entire literary week was filled with engaging interactions and lectures including the Creative Writing Workshop led by Ms. Mansi Savant, a well-respected teacher around the world in many countries such as France, Italy, and Switzerland. In this workshop, she guided students on the importance of creative writing in communication and also shared many writing techniques.

One of the unique features of Literary Week was the opportunity for the students to rent books from the school library for 3 days by paying the book’s MRP. Many students and parents were seen involved. The students also got the opportunity to explore the main highlight of the week- “Figurative Language Techniques and Imagery Techniques”. This was promoted to enhance their ability to express themselves and also left a lasting impression leaving behind invaluable skills for communication and creative writing.
