The categories for the Talent Search were as follows- Instrumentals, Vocals and Sketching.

As the competition was to be held on the 12th of March, , the eliminations for the same were held on the 8th of March.

On the day set for the eliminations, the children came to school ready with their instruments and pieces, songs and crayons. Each participant put in his best effort. The members of the Talent Search committee - Ms. Malaika Rodrigues,  Mrs. Michelle D’souza, Mrs. Christine Periera and Mrs. Lorna Bhantu enjoyed listening to every piece that was played and every song that was sung. As for the sketching- the class teachers were asked to select the best three from every class and the final three from each standard were chosen on the 12th of March. Since there were few entries in the instrumental and vocals category the finalists were chosen on the 8th of March itself. The winners were awarded story and art books as prizes.

As it is rightly said,’ Your talent is a gift from God to you, what you do with it is your gift back to God.’

Kite flying day (Primary)

Makar Sankranti, the festival of kites and til chikkis was celebrated on the 14th of January. Makar Sankranti literally means the movement of the Sun into Capricorn. It is the festival of til-gul where sesame and jaggery laddoos or chikkis are distributed among all and they are generally accompanied by the saying “ til-gul ghya ani gud gud bola” which means “ Eat these sesame seeds and jaggery and speak sweet words.

The boys from Stds I to IV were asked to bring their own kites and phirkis to fly during the durated time. It was an amazing sight to see the colourful kites in the sky and each little boy trying hard to keep their kite flying high. One could also see that special bonding between the parents and their boys while flying their kites, it was like ‘My Dad is the bestest!!’. Some parents even re-lived their childhood days and kept encouraging their sons by shouting ‘ Come on son, you can do it!’ . The boys thoroughly enjoyed this activity to the fullest and returned to class exhausted.
