Shanaya Upadhyaya’s Book Launch - Tales With A Twist
The Learning Support Department and the PYP team take immense pleasure in launching the first book of our Grade 5 student, Shanaya Upadhyaya, in the presence of our Head of School, Ms. Diane, the Head of Secondary, Mr Nick, the Head of Primary Ms. Fiona and Shanaya’s family, friends, teachers and well-wishers.
Tales with a Twist is a compilation of classic fairytales with a twist that invoke refreshing perspectives. This book portrays Shanaya’s writing process by displaying her manuscripts and notes at the end of her unique stories. It is an excellent example of the International Baccalaureate’s ideology that the process is more important than the product. The journey of this book has essentially become the product.
“Words can transform worlds” – Abiding by the theme of Literacy Week 2019, our young author & illustrator plans to donate the proceeds from the sale of this book towards the welfare of children. Should you wish to extend your support towards this charitable cause, please note that the books are priced at 500 INR and will be available to purchase at the PYP Library.
We recognise Shanaya’s hard work and commitment towards this project. We congratulate her on this great achievement and wish her the best for all her future endeavours.
