The amphitheatre of EKYA, ITPL reverberated with the sounds of buoyant music, vivid narrations and dramatic voice-overs as the children of the primary section presented, “Stars of Destiny”, a musical during their annual concert for the academic year 2017-18. The programme was held in two batches keeping in mind the vast number of performers involved.
The day began early with eager parents and excited performers reporting to school, looking forward to a fruitful day. The students, dressed up and talking in hushed tones, waited eagerly backstage while our Vice Principal Ms. Jyothi Menon presented the School Annual Report.
After a quick introduction, the floor of the amphitheatre was taken over by the students of Grades I to V who confidently guided the guests as they embarked upon a journey into the land of their favourite tales. Be it Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, The World of Pinocchio, Cinderella’s Land of Long Long Ago or The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, each scene was redolent of the sense of wonderment, fantasy and adventure synonymous with the imaginary world our children love to revel in. The colourfully attired children sang and danced, emoted and narrated with panache and flamboyance.Their performance was loudly applauded by an appreciative audience at regular intervals.
The programme culminated with a zestful rendition of the school song. Ms. Tristha Ramamurthy, Founder & Managing Director, Ekya Schools, commended the mesmerizing performance of each child.The satisfaction of a job well done was evident on the face of the students as they stepped out of the school premises.
