8 Learners from Inventure Academy win ‘Top in World & India’ Cambridge Outstanding Learner Awards 2018!

Maya Patra, Class of 2018, topped the country in A Level Literature in English. She has joined the University of Manchester and will be pursuing Political Science and International Relations. This is what Maya had to say:

“I am so thankful to Inventure and to my teachers for helping me achieve a good grade in literature. Coming from ICSE to AS and A levels was a huge jump for me, and they took extra time and effort to help me understand how to approach writing a paper in the Cambridge style. In Grade 11, I didn't do so well in my exam, and was very discouraged but my teachers took extra classes for me and helped me build confidence. I found that past papers were my biggest tool, and attempted every past paper I could find online. When I found out I had managed to improve Grade 12 I was overjoyed. My literature classes in Indenture have developed a genuine love for reading and writing, and have showed me how interesting the subject can be. I hope that future students understand from my example that doing badly isn't the end of the world and that they really can improve their grades if they work hard enough.”

This is what her mother, Kavitha Rao, said:
"Coming from ICSE, Maya did badly in her AS levels in English Literature, but she picked herself up and worked very hard to get an A* in A levels. Her school and teachers were very supportive and helped her get back on track, and gave her a lot of help and encouragement. We are proud of her fighting spirit."

The Art curriculum at Inventure demands a constant exposure to artists & their works across categories & genres so that students view, internalize, brainstorm & learn to critique artworks as a holistic approach to the subject. Elective Art students of Grades 8 - 12 went on a field trip to Art Bengaluru which ran from 5 - 18 November.

The event showcased 17 Indian artists across 24 exhibits spanning a diverse repertoire of abstract paintings, sculpture in steel, digital art, photography & prints. The students learnt about the laborious detailing that goes into creating an artwork and were awed by the master pieces they saw. They also learnt about art valuation and why one piece of art sells for more than others.
Anjali Mallmpooty, Grade 10, shares her experience with us in her article here
