Annual Day


On the Wings of Sport

Our endeavour in this year’s Annual Day Celebration is to lay the foundation on which, one day, we hope bridges of friendship will be built - bridges that will bring the world together through Sport.


Life is Magic

"Life is Magic", is about a voyage of discovery. A voyage that transcends the border between reality and fantasy, to know that fantasies are not wishful thoughts, but roads to realities.

It is a dream to make our children understand that the most alluring fragrances of compassion, valour, love, and happiness lie nestled within us and they need to be treasured and nurtured.

Katha Sagar

This year’s Annual Week brought to life the sea of stories , India’s Katha Sagar, a fusion of cultures, ideas and identities. Each grade contributed to the much awaited spectacle, be it the vibrant colors of the Why Why Girl, the animated characters of Jai in Jeopardy, the rich heritage in Shakuntala, music and dance of Potpourri or authentic and convincing acting in Shakespeare’s Tempest. As the fusion of dance styles and music captured our hearts, we undertook a journey through India’s past, students of all ages encouraging us to embrace the inquisitive child.
