The 17th Kusum Verma Memorial English Festival, 2019 was held on the 21st of August at Springdales School, Dhaula Kuan, New Delhi.
It is a commemorative event which is organized each year in the memory of the late Mrs. Kusum Verma, the head of the department, English. The event is organized by OSA the old Springdalians Association.
Four girls accompanied by Ms. Kavita Oberoi participated in the event. We did not bag any prizes, but the experience was a good one.
