Our Annual School Concert, Pratidhwani 2019, held on 14th November 2019 comprised a plethora of vibrant and colourful events. The Chief Guests for the day were Mr. Satinath Mukhopadhyay, an eminent elocutionist and anchor and Mr. Pradip Chatterjee, an eminent vocalist and flautist.
The programme commenced with a floral tribute to Lord Ganesh by the esteemed Chief Guests and other dignitaries present. This was followed by the inspiring speeches by our respected Vice-Chairman, Mr, Kishan Kumar Kejriwal and Principal, Mr. Neelkanth Gupta, where they outlined the vision of the school that aims at imbibing a strong value system in the young aspiring students and laid a special emphasis on the importance of co-curricular activities.
The concert got a spirited start with a mellifluous welcome song that captivated everyone’s heart. A skit titled ‘Save Water’ put up by the students of Classes I and II, was a little initiative to create awareness about wastage of water and an urgent need to save it. The Pre-Primary children showcased their talents through an action dance on the theme ‘Joy’ which depicted a child’s innocence and simplicity in their outlook towards life. A tribute was paid to one of the greatest filmmakers of all times, Satyajit Ray, through a fantastical dance drama based on his two great films, ‘Gupy Gyne, Bagha Byne’ and ‘Hirak Rajar Deshe’. Students of Middle and Senior school presented an English play titled ‘The Post Office’ by Janusz Korczak, based on Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Dakghar’. This young troupe of artists, with their proficient acting skills, truly captivated the hearts of the viewers and left them spellbound. The MCs for the show, Master Lakshya Sharma of VII A and Master Sreejit Dey of VIII C, deserve a special mention who kept the event flowing, bridging between segments of the programme.
The show culminated with the felicitation of the Chief Guests. They expressed their heartfelt elation for being a part of the day’s brilliant, multihued programme. The programme drew to a close with the National Anthem.
