The students put up a marvelous cultural programme based on the theme for the year ‘Etiquette and Environment’. The students of STD IX were the anchors for each programme. Each class tried to portray the theme of the year through their programme. A small gist of the programme would be:
STD I: MOTHER EARTH – A tribute by the students to Mother Earth and all the resources that she has given us through the story of creation.
STD II: THE PROMISE OF RAIN – Water, the most precious resource is steadily becoming rare in the form of rain. This affects the lives of the farmers who depend on it for their livelihood. The item showcases the wait for the monsoon, its arrival, and dearth of rain and above all how man misuses this resource. All this from a child’s point of view!
STD III: Showcasing the important hygiene and cleanliness etiquette, important things children should know with regard to strangers and need to have good manners will be presented in a dance form.
STD IV: ETIQUETTE MAKETH A MAN – The students bring before you the most important etiquette followed to bring out good behavior, dining etiquette and how when all of these come together, they would create a better human being. One for whom, the sky would have no boundaries!
STD V: ETIQUETTE TOWARDS WOMEN – WOMAN THE WORLD IS YOURS – The students focus on the status of women from the ancient ages where she was highly respected, through the modern middle ages where she found her wings to fly and create an identity for herself, and finally bring before you the atrocities meted out on her. An eye-opener to rethink what etiquette we need to follow when dealing with women.
STD VI: CHOIR- A medleys of 3 songs which help us understand “Helpful Habits”, “Making Fun” of others is not a good and causes great emotional damage and finally “Unity in diversity” bringing out how each of us is different and yet should live in perfect harmony.
STD VII: PANCHABHOOTAM – The five elements of Water, Air, Earth, Space and Fire are portrayed through various dances ultimately culminating into how they make up the essence of life in the human body.
STD VIII: JAL NA JAYE JAL – A moving musical which highlights the pollution of the holy river Ganga, our moral duty and responsibility as citizens of India to help clean the Ganga and restore her to herpurity. An endeavor to arouse awareness in each Indian to become conscious of a cleaner environment, neighborhood and finally a “Swach Bharat”, our Swades!
