A very informative video highlighted how various deficiencies affect the life of a child and what needs to be eaten to reduce the deficiency. The students also sang a peppy song. All the students were extremely well prepared and it was evident that a lot of planning and practice had gone into it. They spoke flawlessly and with loads of confidence. Good job grade IIB.

The same characters were taken over by the students of different grades as the play progressed. The throw of voice, the handling of the mikes and the superb acting of each and every student amazed the audience.
