Every year, Inventuring ends on a high note of showcase performances, music, and dance. This year, apart from student performances, we had guests, Thermal and a Quarter perform live at school. Here they are talking to our students about their kind of music - Bangalore rock, the process of writing songs, and playing to an appreciative audience. On advise to our budding musicians at Inventure, Bruce Lee Mani, lead singer said, "It's hard to follow your dream, you have to be a bit mad, and keep at it."
At Inventure Academy, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive community. Not only are Parents an integral part of our lives at Inventure Academy, but our Grandparents also have a vast amount of knowledge and wisdom to offer, and we are very appreciative for their participation and support of Inventure Academy. Here are some highlights of the recent Grandparents Day hosted by our Pre- School. [gallery columns="4" ids="3898,3899,3900,3901,3902,3903,3904,3905,3906,3907,3908"]
Inventure Academy students at HMUN 2014[/caption] “It was that time of year again, 15 of our school’s best MUNers were chosen to represent Inventure Academy at Harvard Model United Nations 2014 – one of the most prestigious Model UN’s in the country. With 4 days of intense debate, delicious food, amazing people from all over the world, and crazy social events – HMUN had it all! But what was the best part about HMUN, you might ask? Above all, was the fact that it brought the 15 of us that much closer. Although we ranged from grades 9 to 12, our mutual love for MUN brought us together. In the end, we did so well because we learned from each other. Namrata Ramesh and Tejas Rao unsurprisingly won Outstanding Delegates, and a lot of us also came very close. Experiences like HMUN are incredibly valuable because they teach us to be independent, and most importantly, to stand up for what you believe. In today’s world, belief is of the utmost importance.” - Anusha Ramji, Grade 11

Bringing together delegates from premier institutions around the world, the fourth session of this conference is being marked by the presence of thought leaders from across industries and will provide platforms for delegates and faculty advisors to interact with these leaders and other revered speakers." Stayed tuned for details about Inventure's participation in the HMUN 2014.
