A notice is written or printed information or news announcement. Notices are either prominently displayed or published in newspapers, school bulletin boards, and magazines. It is only meant for a small number of people. Because it contains a formal announcement or information, the tone and style of the notice are formal and factual. Its language should be simple and formal. Notices are always brief and direct. I will try my best to explain notice writing for the 12th class, its’ format, examples, exercises, and pdf.
