Lit Fest - Class VIII - 2020

The final day of the JGIS Lit Fest 2020 began with an introduction to the short story, The Canterville Ghost, by Oscar Wilde. Two students, Manav and Angaj introduced the story as well as the chief guest with a rap song.

The students of class 8 ICSE presented the story of Sir Simon, the ghost, in an entertaining and creative manner. They tried to convey the message, “When we do something wrong to others, our soul would not get peace even after passing from the world.”

The students of class VIII IGCSE enacted the novel “The Hobbit”. The story  revolves around  Bilbo Baggins,  the main protagonist who  is swept into a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf kingdom from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of dwarves. Bilbo gains possession of a precious ring which makes him invisible and so is able to come close to Smaug , infuriating him. Bard another character from Lake Town kills Smaug and the dwarves are able to retrieve their lost treasure.

The students recreated a fantasy world of  dwarves and  dragons with their superb performance and  artistic skills
