‘Funvention 2017’- the first ever ‘Edutainment’ festival organised by the Past Pupil’s Association of Musaeus College kicked off in style last weekend. It was an event that brought children, families and the youth together to have their own fun. While children were having fun in their kids’ zones, there were different zones for the youth and the adults to have fun.
One such interesting zone was the Hogwarts Zone which didn’t have just Harry Potter related fun but also hosted many educational programmes from emergency training to demonstrations on health, workshops and many others.
The other zones included the Cartoon Zone and even a Jurassic Park theme with life-size dinosaurs! The organising committee has been working tirelessly to make this event a success and funds raised from ‘Funvention’ 2017 will be in aid of the auditorium which was burned down last year. Amidst the excitement, the Daily Mirror Life caught up with a few participants who shared their views about the event.
