A special assembly was presented by the students of Grade I on Tuesday, 24th January. Dressed as Ram, Lakshman, Sita, Hanuman and the demon king- Ravana, the little ones were seen walking in through the school gates!! The children showcased a heartwarming rendition of different scenes from the Ramayana. In fact the children were excited to perform the short dramatization of the scenes in their own special way. It was also wonderful to see them confidently moving on the stage performing and coordinating their parts in the play, moving props, mikes and sometimes even prompting. They left the audience awe struck with their performance.
Another special assembly on the topic ‘LIFE IS A SPORT, MAKE IT COUNT’ was presented on Wednesday, 25th January. The presentation emphasized on the importance of sports in a student’s life. Apart from highlighting the famous sports personalities who have carved a niche for themselves it also focussed on the various career paths that sports offers these days. The students made the audience aware that a healthy mind resides in a healthy body and how sports teach us the value of discipline.
A special assembly was conducted on Wednesday, 25th January to celebrate Republic Day. It was a moment of great pride for all of us to soak in the fact that it took almost 3 years for the Indian Constitution to be shaped in its current form. It was delightful to witness our students of grade II reciting the poem ‘I Salute My Flag’. The students of grade VII B presented a beautiful fan-dance giving an expression to their patriotic emotions. It was a perfect tribute to our motherland that reminded us that our country has flourished despite adversities.
Republic Day was celebrated with zeal and enthusiasm. The management, teachers and students of Grade X were present. The celebrations commenced with the hoisting of the National Flag by Mr. Praveen Raju, M.D followed by a short programme.
