A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice, but as yet unstained.” – Lyman Abbott
The school’s programme is a time for celebration and recognition of the students as well as the school’s achievements. It is the culmination of the school’s academic year. It’s also a time for teamwork and being proud of what the school stands for and believes in.
Keeping the same vision in mind the students of Class IV presented a dance drama which was a result of the immense hard work, dedication and learning woven into the threads of musical beats and rhythmic dance movements titled “Divine Expression”.
The Chief Guest Mrs. Anuradha Mathur, former Headmistress SJS, Naraina and SPS, Rajendra Nagar graced the occasion along with the Guest of Honour Ms. Akansha Arora an alumnus of Salwan School, who is currently working as a sub-editor at CNN- News 18.
The event started with the traditional lamp lighting done by the dignitaries followed by presentation of Annual School Report by the Master Riaan Narula, Head boy and Miss Diya Vashisht, Head Girl of the school.
The cultural presentation began with a soulful rendition by the school Choir group on Sri Krishna Madhurashtakam which explained the appearance, qualities, symbols, and motifs related to the life of Lord Krishna saying that everything related to Lord Krishna is sweet and he is the lord of sweetness.
The dance drama was a dedication to the divine powers that provides energy to the whole universe. It is believed that in ancient times, there were four Vedas which are old scriptural texts in India. Brahma created the fifth Veda so that all could understand it. This turned into the Natya Veda. This was then used in forms of dance.
The performance of the students depicted a range of mudras which are used to depict Vigneshwara Saraswathi Dashavathara Vishnu Shiva and Durga. It depicted their love and dedication to the Gods and Goddesses.
The audience was left spellbound by their performance and had strings of praise for the students and staff for putting up such a wonderful show to highlight the talent of the students on stage.
