In order to guide students in the art of poetry and creative writing, Oberoi International School (OIS) invited internationally renowned spoken word poetry duo Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye of Project VOICE (Vocal Outreach Into Creative Expression) to perform their original work and conduct interactive workshops with students and their parents at the school’s premises from March 18–20,2013.

Through performances and interactive workshops, Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye passionately inspired students and parents alike to be active in their world. They shared their experiences with the students and also discussed the steps they took to achieve creativity and growth as spoken word poets. At the event, Kay and Kaye showcased some of their best work to the students. In between poems, they discussed a wide variety of topics, including their family life, work, and travels— giving context for the audience to better understand and appreciate their poetry.

Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye blended performance with poetry for parents and students alike, making them laugh and think while inspiring them to try out this art form themselves.

Sarah Kay, said, “Project V.O.I.C.E. uses spoken word poetry as a way to entertain, educate, and inspire. We encourage students to express themselves fully about whatever topics they are most passionate, and we help students have enough con?dence in their own voice to present their stories and poems in a way that moves others.”

Phil Kaye, went on to say, “Too often, students get in their head that poetry is something that is completely distant to them – or worse, that it is something they just ‘don’t get’. But that isn’t the case at all. Poetry can absolutely be relevant. The best poetry always is. It can be a tool to work through all the things at the forefront of their minds, whether it’s an upcoming test, an unrequited crush or an ailing family member.”

“We at OIS always strive to help our students realize their dreams. Expressing oneself positively and freely is an important prerequisite to achieve success in life, and through this interactive workshop, we aim to empower our students to master the art of poetry and creative writing,” said, Dr. Vladimir Kuskovski, Headof school, Oberoi International School.

Oberoi International School regularly invites experts from various ?elds to conduct interactive workshops with students and their parents. Apart from the regular learning, the school aims to empower students to grow as individuals with strong open discerning minds with an international perspective, preparing them to make a mark in the global village - the world has come to be today.
