World Intellectual Property Day

On April 26, every year we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day in order to promote discussion of the role of Intellectual Properly in encouraging innovation and creativity. The aim of this day is to increase the general understanding of Intellectual Property.

Theme for this year is Reach for Gold: Sports and Intellectual Property

The celebrations consisted of hosting a Sports Symposium at the Cricket Coolidge Grounds. In addition, we host every year an Annual competition for Primary and Secondary School Competition.

This year is it an art competition. We also visited 8 schools.
