21 March, 2017 · World Poetry Day
Pupils at Silver Oaks participated in celebrating “poetry” as a medium of communication while understanding that it is such an important and powerful form of expression that a dedicated “World Poetry Day” was declared by the UN to recognize the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind.
The decision to proclaim March 21 as World Poetry Day was adopted during 30th UN session held in Paris, France in 1999. The objective behind this dedication is to: encourage a return to the tradition of oral recital; to promote the teaching of poetry; to restore a dialogue between poetry and other arts such as theater, dance, music and painting; and to enable society as a whole to regain and assert its identity. As part of raising awareness about poetry, at Silver Oaks, pupils from Pre to Middle School participated in the various forms of poetry – Hamd; Naat; songs; patriotic songs; national anthem. In addition, they received insight into the poetic contributions of Sir Allama Iqbal, William Shakespeare, Hafeez Jullundhri, and William Wordsworth while also being informed of the contributions of various regional Pakistani poets in the Sindhi, Punjabi, Pushto & Balochi languages.
