The gala began with performers of grade 1, who took the audience into the naughty world of natkhat Krishna, which thwarted them to their childhood and rekindled their sweet memories. It was then time for the tiny tots of pre-primary to transport the spectators into the chimerical world of Cinderella, fairies, magic and love.
This was followed by the chief guest’s motivational and enlightening speech. The students of 2017-18 were felicitated by the chief guest for their outstanding performance in the board exams. The school topper was awarded a cash prize of Rs.10000, subject toppers were presented with certificates and mementos.

It was then time to applaud and laud the efforts put in by everyone for the eventful year that has gone by. Principal, Ms. Hemalatha along with Hemanth, the school head boy and Meghana, the head girl presented the Annual Report for the year 2018-19.
The event was then taken ahead by girls of grade 7 to 10 with riveting Ramayana, presented in the form of a musical. The euphoria created by them was carried ahead by grade 3 and 4 who celebrated various festivals of India with pomp and vigor. This was followed by a magical performance by students of grade 6 who teleported us to the sands of Arabia to experience the magic of the Genie. The audience were then given a visual treat by senior boys who narrated the saga of the supreme lord in his 10 forms, a fitting performance for the grand finale, mesmerising everyone.
