The kids take the stage!

Annual Day

In most schools, the annual day is perhaps the most-awaited event of the year — for students as well as parents. The students of East West Academy were excited about showcasing their talents, in front of their parents, at their annual concert, which was celebrated at Chowdiah Memorial Hall.

It was evident that the students from lower kindergarten to class ten were preparing to floor their parents with a wonderful cultural programme. The hall was abuzz with activity — children looking out for their parents and parents, in turn, trying to spot their children on the stage. In fact, many young ones gave in and waved at their parents while they were on stage.

The programme started with an inaugural session by the principal of the school, Shylini Soans and was followed by a prize distribution, which lauded the efforts of students in the field of academics, sports as well as culture. The award for the best outgoing student was given to Suhas Gowda of class 10. The SSLC toppers from the school were also awarded during the programme.

The cultural extravaganza began with  an invocation dance by the students of class ten. They presented a small bharatanatyam recital, which was colourful and energetic. The moves were well-coordinated and the students did a good job.

The stage was soon flooded with the tiny tots of the LKG, who danced to a welcome song. Dressed in golden and red, the little ones were more than entertaining on stage, dancing and waving at their parents and family members. Their spontaneity stole the show and the audience was paying more attention to their antics on stage than the actual dance. Up next were the UKG students, who were dressed in pink and grey and danced to a popular Bollywood number. The excitement of being on stage and basking in attention was evident on each of their faces.

The parents were happy to attend the function; in fact, many parents had specially taken leave to be there. “I did not want to miss seeing my daughter on stage. She has worked very hard to improve her dance skills and we as parents tried to help and support her during the practice sessions. The welcome dance by the little ones was adorable,” says Madhavi, who had come for the function.
