Pre - Primary Annual Day

Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.
Martha Graham
Held on 15th December (morning LKG and evening UKG), the Li’l Dancethon at SJBHS was just that – an extravaganza of dance, music, rhythm and joy. Dance forms from India and overseas were showcased under the umbrella of the Pre-Primary Annual Day, 2018. The razzmatazz costumes, the dazzling dance steps and the energy of the joyful dancers set the stage ablaze. The students and their teachers worked hard to put up a spectacular show.

The traditional folk dances of Karnataka, Goa, Gujarat, Kashmir; Arabian belly dance, a cowboy dance from the Wild West, the Samba from Africa and the Ukrainian folk dance Hopak / Cossack vied with the Samurais, the British, the Italian and Hawaiian dances. The fusion dance and the ballet added to the overall excitement. Grandparents, parents, relatives, neighbours and well-wishers were among the audience to cheer the little dancers.

The Chief Guest for the morning session was Mrs. Rohini N. Swamy, a parent and editor of ‘The Print’. She was accompanied by her spouse Mr. Anand Eshwaran. The Guest of Honour was Rev. Fr. Hedwig Da Costa SJ, former Principal of SJBHS. For the UKG session, the Chief Guest was Dr. Anup Krishnamurthy, Old Boy, Assistant Professor of Marketing at St. Joseph’s Institute of Management and co-chair of the centre for Business Research. The Guest of Honour was Rev. Fr. Arun Prasanth D’Souza SJ.

Mrs. Rohini N. Swamy, in her speech said that she was a proud but humble parent who will be ever grateful to SJBHS for offering a level playing field for the development of academic excellence, secular outlook and an all-round balanced personality. Dr. Anup highlighted the advantages of being a Josephite wherein one learns to work towards their goals with excellence and diligence. He also said that as an individual, a Josephite, develops a decent moral yardstick that keeps him/her in good stead irrespective of their career path or life journey.

Fr. Hedwig Da Costa and Fr. Arun Prasanth stressed on the ethos of Jesuit Education. They brought the audience abreast with the problems the school encounters when dealing with the students of this generation and how values can be inculcated at home and nurtured at school.

The students enacted the scene of the very first Christmas through song and drama. Being the season of joy, cheer, hope and happiness, the tableaux heralded the message of love and fellowship.
