22nd December, 2011 - The 26th Annual Cultural Programme
The year 2011 concluded for Rajhans Vidyalaya in a very special way as it celebrated its 26th Annual Day on 22nd December, 2011 in its school auditorium. Rajhans has started with a path breaking tradition of inviting the parents of the school topper or the all rounder to be the esteemed chief guest for the occasion. This year the chief guest for the 1st shift were Mr. Bhalachandra V. Pandit and Mrs. Radhika B. Pandit, parents of Master Raghavendra B. Pandit of class X-B, who was adjudged the all rounder from secondary section. Director, Capt. B. C. Kumavat, Principal Deepshikha S. Srivastava, Supervisor of Secondary division, Mrs. Sharan Amde and Principal of Baikabibai Balvatika, Mrs. Chavan were present on the stage and graced the function. For the 2nd shift the chief guests were the parents of science topper Deeksha Nathani and Commerce topper Monal Jaswani.
The programme commenced with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by the distinguished guests, our Principal Mrs. D. S. Srivastava and our Director Capt. B. C. Kumawat. It was followed by a power point presentation of the Annual school Report read out by our Principal.
The prize distribution ceremony which is always the star attraction for the students ensued almost immediately. The students were felicitated for their academic excellence and extra-curricular achievements.
The cultural programme started with an evocative Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore sangeet song by the school choir. It was a humble tribute to Tagore’s 150th Birth Anniversary. Next was a Hindi play which reiterated the precept “Honesty is the Best Policy”. The moral overtone of the Hindi play gave way to a “Tongue-In-Cheek” satire on the intellectual pretentions of the pseudo-society through a brilliantly staged English play called “The Apple”.
The evening ended with a dazzling display of colour, rhythm, music blended in harmony through a tribal dance. The rainbow of colour, the sparkling pageantry, the foot tapping music kept the audience enthralled transporting them to a tribal land.
The programme concluded with a thanks giving speech by our school captain Leah Gomes. For a long time after the show was over lilting music, the rhythmic drum beats kept haunting the audience.
Republic Day & Annual Sports Meet – 26th January, 2012
The dawn of 26th January, witnessed the auspicious Republic Day and Sports Day celebrations with much vigour and enthusiasm. Weeks before, the students started Inter-house competitions in various indoor and outdoor games.
The lawns of HMPS were meticulously done up for the event. The victory stand awaited its glory. The Sports day began with the flag hoisting and march past of all the four houses – Kalidas, Gyaneshwar, Tulsidas and Kabir. The Chief Guest, Mr. Sanjay Sharma, the former Indian world badminton champion, along with our Director Capt. Kumawat and the Principal of Rajhans Vidyalaya, Mrs. Srivastava sat on the dias and watched the display of colours with keen interest.
The Primary section students swirled to the musical drill and displayed the story of the Indian flag, while, boys of Std. VI and Std. VII displayed their strength and grit in Malkhamb. The Secondary section portrayed the exercises in Yoga. The 100m race on the field from Std. VI – XI left the students in a frenzy shouting themselves hoarse for their respective houses. The teachers and parents race was the icing on the cake. The champions were applauded and cheered, went home with pride. Kalidas house was awarded the overall champion for 2011 – 2012.
The event concluded with anecdotes from the chief guest and Leah Gomes, the school captain read the vote of thanks.
In the words of Joanne E. Opprenheim, “It is not an exaggeration to say that play is as basic to a child’s total development as good food, cleanliness and rest.”
