In an endeavor to celebrate the youthfulness of the young scholars and experience their innovation and talent, Genesis Global School, a premier day-cum-residential school in Noida, hosted the second edition of LANDMARK – a cultural extravaganza in its premises on August 04, 2014, New Delhi.
The plethora of activities at LANDMARK is going to unfurl the creativity of every child who ‘Aspires to Inspire’. Being an inter – school competition, it witnessed participation from a total of 18 schools, belonging to Delhi and other areas.

The competition showcased a healthy spirit of students actively participating in music, art and literature.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Pramod Sharma, Principal, Genesis Global School said, “We believe that a harmonious blend of the academic and the co-curricular adds panache to the personality of students. ‘LANDMARK’, which is organized every year is an effort conceived with the same thought that our students will truly be scholars only when they are well versed with music, art and literature”.
Adding to the thought, Mr. Vivek Pant, Dean- Academics at Genesis Global School, who is also the convener of the event said that “This three day celebration will help in spreading awareness around the importance of creating global citizens of tomorrow, and inculcating in them a healthy spirit of competition,”
