An Invitation
  It is our pleasure to invite your school to participate in the XIth International Cultural Competition Celesta 2016, organized by City Montessori School, Aliganj Campus I (Sec-O), Lucknow. Celesta is an internationally acclaimed competition held every alternate year for cultural events. This competition is scheduled from 8th to 11th September 2016. It is an international competition with competitors representing nations from around the world. The officials and judges are distinguished in their fields, making the level of competition and the degree of merit achieved commendable. It is our endeavour to focus on cultural exchange for positive and constructive purposes.

The team may comprise not more than eight students, accompanied by a teacher who will be the team leader and an accompanist. We extend a special invitation to the principal of the school, as our Guest of Honour. The competitors must be school students.

At City Montessori School we believe and practice that the world is but one country and mankind its citizen. For 54 years we have been teaching our children about world unity and putting it in practice. City Montessori School is a school to experience and Celesta a unique platform for the youth of the world to interact, open new vistas and widen horizons.
