What is a notice?
A notice is written information to the concerned people that they will take an action before or after a fixed period. It is written in order to inform a large number of people about something that has happened or is about to happen.
Noticeboard messages are written and put up on display boards in schools or in public places for public view. For example, when you were in a school, college, or university, you often got notices about upcoming events like debate competition, term exam, tuition fees payment, lost and found notice, etc. Notices are written to a targeted audience.
Noticeboard messages are formal. So, the language of a notice must be formal and to the point. Don’t use any flowery words in a notice.
Tips on Writing Notice
(i) Don’t make your notice too large. Keep it in less than 50 words.
(ii) As notice board message should be short, precise and to the point, don’t repeat any information.
(iii) For better view, enclose the notice in a box. Use a pencil to draw the box.
