Anandaniketan, a prominent English medium school in Sylhet, organized its first literature festival on Tuesday in Sylhet. 

More than a hundred students of different classes from 1-12 performed at the half-day festival. 

Dr Abul Fateh Fattah, dean, the School of Social Sciences, Sylhet International University, attended as the chief guest. He handed out medals and certificates to the winners of the different competitions. 

Guardians and guests enjoyed literary and cultural performances ranging from dance, recitation, songs, fashion show and short play. There were two wall magazines published named “Arunodoy”. 

Collectors of Sylhet showcased their prized antiques at the festival. 

In his speech Dr Fattah said: “I was surprised watching such magnificent Bangla performances by students of an English medium school. I hope the students of Anandaniketan will spread the values of Bangla literature throughout the world.”

Academic Head Shameem Choudhury, Administrative Head Fahmina Nahas and other Bangla teachers were also present at the prize-giving ceremony. 

Protik Endo, a guardian and general secretary of Rabindra Sangeet Sammelan Parishad, Sylhet, said: “This festival introduced Bangla literature, culture and heritage to the new generation. They were also introduced to some music instruments and village games, which were nearly extinct. This sort of program will help to keep our history and heritage alive.”

“We congratulate Anandaniketan for arranging such an important event. I hope they will continue in the upcoming years,” Protik Endo added. 

Ziareen Choudhury, Mahjabin Johra Kakon, Nandita Datta, Saki Choudhury, Amrin Islam, Sangeeta Endo and Nimmi Choudhury and other Bangla teachers of Anandaniketan thanked all participants and guests.
