Celebrating excellence in education
PYP Indus Day: Through the annual Indus Day celebrations, the notion of whole education is brought to life. Every student from the Primary Years Programme participates in one element of the extravaganza be it dance, music or drama.
Students of the Early Years, Grade 1 and Grade 2 staged a delightful dramatization of the timeless classic, ‘Jungle book’ by Rudyard Kipling on 7 th December to celebrate Indus Day. Our courageous young Eagles played their parts to perfection with utmost confidence and had a melodious choir singing by their side. The adorable little ones of the Early Years added a touch of humour to the event with their vibrant butterfly waltz, the pompous elephant march and ‘Bare Necessities’ conveyed an elixir for true happiness and joy.
The performances received a sweeping ovation from the audience stands and we thank all parents who joined in to show their appreciation towards our budding artists.
On the 8 th of December, students of Grades 3, 4 and 5 put up an adaptation of the famous musical, The Wizard of Oz. The evening was a visual and auditory delight. The hard work put in by the students and the teachers was evident. The audience enjoyed every minute of the play. The students showcased their musical talents by not only singing the songs well, but also at times playing the instruments.
The message of the performance was what made it more special. At the end of the play, the protagonists realized that they have always had the qualities they yearned for, inside them. This is resonant with our belief at Indus, that every person has the potential to be an innovator, to be a leader; they need only to work towards it inside out.
