Report writing on annual cultural programs is always a hot topic, quite relevant for multiple examinations all around the country. In our research, we have found that there are many kinds of confusion while writing reports on these kinds of common topics. That's why we have decided to come up with a session on report writing on an annual cultural program to clear up all the doubts regarding the topic.
At the very beginning, I want to clarify that these kinds of reports can be classified into two categories:
So our today's presentation will be based on both these categories. The first two examples will be in the pattern of newspaper reports and the next two will be in magazine reporting style.

Vivekananda Higher Secondary School celebrated their Foundation Day in the school premises on 12th January, on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. In 1962, on this very day, our school came into existence inaugurated by the contemporary chief minister Mr Prafulla Chandra Sen.
From that very year, our School celebrates its Foundation Day with splendid cultural ceremonies by every year's 12th January. This year was no exception for the school in terms of celebrating our foundation day. For this ceremony, the entire school building was decorated with beautiful flowers and lights.
By 4:30 in the afternoon, the program started with a very short speech by our honourable headmaster Mr Sudip Chaudhary.

Annual cultural day of any institution is always very important for all the students and teachers. Our Nava Nalanda is famous for having some special arrangements for this day every year. This year was no exception for us as well. The school celebrated the annual cultural programme this year in Netaji Indoor Stadium on 13th January.
Our school authority decided to celebrate this year's annual cultural program with a different vibe than other years. For the annual cultural ceremony, they invited some poor children along with their parents. According to the plan of the cultural committee of our school, we dedicated this day to help the needy and serve the poor. We have also decided to raise some funds in order to help orphan children.
The fund will afterwards go to some orphanage. All the invited poor and distressed children were provided with new clothes, students gave their older books, notebooks, and other study accessories.
Then a small-scale cultural program was staged exclusively by the students. They sang, they recited and even they staged a short drama. All the faces of the children were glittering with joy. By 4:30 in the afternoon the program came to an end with a short speech by the principal of the school.
That was all about reports writing on an annual cultural program. Here in the session, we have tried to cover every aspect and tried to write these reports from all possible perspectives. Hope you found this session helpful as per your requirement. Let us know your valuable opinion as well as suggestions for this session in the comment section below. Thank you; see you again very soon.
