Ready to soar

Poignant

Inventure Academy, located on Whitefield – Sarjapur Road, held the graduation ceremony for its Grade 12 students recently. The well-attended event had an appropriate theme: ‘Touch the Sky’. The 27-member-class has students who have excelled in diverse areas — from academics and sports to performing arts.

Students from this batch have also topped the CIE Board exams, scored very high marks in the CISCE Board examinations and have accomplished athletes. A ‘Moving-up Ceremony’ for the 49-member-strong 10th Grade batch was  held simultaneously.The event was attended by Irfan Razack, managing director of the Prestige group and chairman/ co-founder of Inventure Academy; Nooraine Fazal, managing trustee, CEO and co-founder of the school; former minister and trustee Nafees Fazal; and Hassan Fazal. 

Ecstatic parents, faculty, students and other guests listened in rapt attention to chief guest Lakshmi Pratury’s graduation speech. She urged the students to have the strength to bounce back after facing any failure in life. Lakshmi also brought along a surprise guest — actor Abhay Deol. He shared his own experiences as a student and spoke about how one should focus on maximising one’s potential, while being a life-long learner. This was followed by a Q and A session, much to the delight of the students.
