Overview

We have prepared a proposal based on ABC School students’ interest in Photography. We want to encourage the students to develop and improve their photography skills as photographers and promote photography as a hobby. It’s a healthy activity and nowadays, everybody has access to camera whether it is a DSLR or a mobile device. This club will help the students to be creative and have fun with their fellows. It will also allow them to learn about the technical aspects of taking a perfect photograph. This opportunity will be provided to the students of Grade 9 to 12. Students at this age are more active and keener to learn new things and be imaginative. By learning about photography and developing an interest in this field, students can pursue this as a career in the future.

We have attached a signed Activity Petition. More than 15 students are interested in joining this club. All the information is provided along with the student ID card numbers.

XYZ is willing to sponsor this club and once the committee approves the club activity, we would conduct a meet up with XYZ.

Visits from professional guest lecturers will provide inspiration and fun opportunities to explore this genre.

This club will help students improve their educational experience at ABC School.
