The Principal, Rev. Fr. Babu Varghese inaugurated the proceedings. A warm welcome was given to the esteemed judges Rev. Fr. Norbert , Bro. Kamal and Ms. Ruchika. And then as the names were announced by our young presenters, a visual treat unfolded before our eyes. Music, dance, colourful costumes and lights enveloped the audience as we sat awestruck at the sheer talents of the young students. Class III participants were on first and they rocked the stage with their superlative technique and presentation. Dancing away, with their body swinging to the beats of the music, the young participants enthralled the audience. An exquisite Bharatnatyam dance number by a tiny Sardar, representing the rich cultural heritage of India, stimulated the visual feast and complimented the dances put up by the students. Following the dancers from Class III, were the talented dancers from Class IV. Half an hour of breathtaking performance had the audience spellbound as the young students jived to the rhythmic beats of popular Bollywood numbers. Once the Class IV performers completed their dance numbers, the Principal, Rev. Fr. Babu Varghese announced the results for Class III and gave away the trophies. Leonard Xavier of Class III - B stood first and Faric Francis of Class III – A stood third. The second position was shared by Emmanuel Jefrithi of Class III – A and Mohd. Abaan Khan of Class III – C. Thereafter, it was the call for dance by our Principal, Rev. Fr. Babu Varghese that set the floor on fire as he invited all the students of Classes III, IV and V to dance to popular Bollywood numbers. Five minutes of blissful dance for our energetic students and then it was time for the students of Class V to showcase their talents. An enthralling mix of musical numbers – regional and popular Hindi songs – resonated in the auditorium as the participants from Class V took the stage. None of the dancers missed a beat as they swayed to the rhythmic melody of the music. Once all the participants were through with their dance numbers, it was time for the Prize Distribution for Classes IV and V. The Vice-Principal, Rev. Fr. Bhushan Cosmos gave away the prizes to the winners. Darsh Gaur of Class IV D stood first while Rock Prasad Sagar of Class IV D won the second prize. The third prize was won by Simeon Emmanuel of Class IV-B. From Class V, it was Harinarayanan R of Class V-C who led the band of Prize winners with the first position.
