Inventure Academy fosters multiple talents amongst its students. This constant endeavor is a reflection of its advocacy of Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Recently, the school celebrated the writing journey of its primary school students. As a culmination of their writing workshop, portfolios of each student’s work were published. This included persuasive letters, restaurant, book and game reviews, poetry and narrative writing. These printed portfolios included the students’ reflections on their writing journey and a blurb with a profile of each student.
This event was held on the Inventure Academy campus between the 11th and 13th of March 2015 and the ecstatic visitors included parents and grand parents who were awe-struck by the students’ work. A mother said, “I did not know that my daughter could write such beautiful poetry.” For another parent, the publishing project was testimony that he had indeed, chosen the right school for his child.
