Annual Day

Every year the school organizes a key annual event, as Annual Day, in the form of a sports fest, drama production, musical event, dance performance or a similar event. A key feature of these celebrations is that all students from LKG to class XII participate and make it an enjoyable and memorable experience.

In the first academic year, the school celebrated the Inaugural Sports Fest combining sports and cultural events. In 2004, 'Jivtara - The Musical' was celebrated as an annual production. In 2005, ‘We the People’ was celebrated as the annual day, which was our homage to the men and women who fought for the freedom of India from foreign rule.

In 2006, the school hosted the Inaugural International Sports & Cultural Fest, with participation of students from Bangladesh, China, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand, on the theme 'The Eternal Flame of Peace & Friendship'. It presented a wonderful opportunity for nearly 1000 students from the school and 110 students from these countries to establish lasting bonds of friendship, and to compete in a variety of sporting events.

In 2007, we celebrated our Annual Day as 'The Great Indian Mela', comprising of a musical event to celebrate India's 60 years of Independence, and a fete to raise funds for the many NGOs that our students support and work with. Through this fun-filled event they served a great cause - a significant amount was collected and donated to the NGOs, in addition to the sales these NGOs made at the event by selling their products.

In 2008, the school staged a very contemporary play ‘I Have A Dream’ with music, dance and theatrical enactments, and climate change being the central theme; scientists, environmentalists and veteran film personalities were honoured on the occasion.

The Annual Day of 2009 ‘I am Mumbai’ was a piece from our everyday lives in Mumbai. The School’s production, through its theatrical enactment flavoured with music and dance, celebrated Mumbai’s history, heritage, diversity and success stories; while also depicting the threats and issues affecting the lives of Mumbaikars.

In 2010, the School celebrated its Annual Day on the theme 'Chrismast'. It consisted of a musical 'The Gift', which showcased our children's creative talents and the 'Christmas Carnival', which gave a colourful exposition of their ethos of loving and giving. The funds raised from this Carnival supported the various service initiatives our children have taken up

In 2011, the School celebrated its Annual Day on the theme ‘Utsav’, celebrating India’s rich heritage and exhibiting the diverse cultures which are interwoven in the fabric of our country through a musical journey of celebrating the festivals of India.

In 2012, the school celebrated its Annual Day on the theme ‘Mother’- a musical about India and her people. It was a particularly momentous occasion as the school was on the threshold of an important milestone- the joy of completing 10 years.
