School Publications

Ilm Academy produces original publications created and written by the school’s young scholars. Borne of the concept of active literary participation of the students in the creation of books that they can forever treasure, these are vastly entertaining keepsakes not only for the young authors themselves but for any reader.

Ilm Academy publications are compiled on the basis of creative merit as well as for the original ingenuity of the compositions. When motivated, the imaginations of children know no bounds. Our books showcase that imagination in these delightful collections. Edited and compiled by Irum Sarfaraz, the middle-school Language Arts teacher, a writer and editor by profession, original cover art by Bay Area artist Tahira Aftab, and with first grade, full cover printing, these books are an absorbing and entertaining addition to any bookshelf.

Ilm Academy Anthology

–– Vol. V

Read More

Ilm Anthology-Vol. V is a collection of poems from the students of Ilm Academy. Continuing one of the most cherished literary traditions of the school, the annual school anthology brings forth heart-warming and touching poems from the students on the theme of ‘Respect’. In addition to ‘Respect’ the students also explore other themes and ideas in poetic expression. Poetry has always remained a significant platform for the conveyance of a writer’s innermost reflections and deliberation about his world and his interactions with individuals in that world. The foundational purpose of poetry remains unchanged over the centuries. Ilm Academy’s annual anthology brings to fore poetry with a fresh and invigorating perspective—the manner in which children see the world around them.
