The Cambridge School Winterfest was held on November 29, 2014. It was that time of the year again when students and teachers came together to present a rich medley of performances. The theme this year was Mythology and Classics, presented through a number of songs and colourful dances.
The curtain went up punctually at 5 pm amidst breathless expectations from parents, their wards and guests. The auditorium was, as usual filled to capacity.
It began with the Principal, Mrs Sunita Chowdhary’s inaugural address welcoming the chief guest. She also informed the audience about the change in our academic calendar this year and spoke about the high achievements of some of our students.
The Chief Guest this year was Mrs Monideepa Banerjie the veteran journalist and a TCS parent. Tvisha of class 8 presented flowers to her while Napassorn of Class 10 presented her with a gift. In her address Mrs Banerjie laid emphasis on our methods of teaching and was all praise for the school.
Prizes and scholarships were then distributed to deserving students. The Cambridge Brilliance Awards for India-toppers were received by Anusha Lihala for Computing and Subhalakshmi Basu for History this year.
The Junior School, Classes Nursery to III, presented Roma – the story of Romulus and Remus – founders of the city of Rome.
Classes IV to VII’s presented Troy – which showed scenes from the Trojan War.
The next ones to take the stage were Classes VIII, IX and X. They presented ‘Candle Yin’ – important events in Chinese mythology.
The evening concluded with the the AS and A2 classes presenting an adaptation of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and a short skit on Martial Arts.
They also presented a variety of innovative dances. The dances were choreographed by the students themselves.
The enthusiasm, zeal as well as skills which were on display found instant response among the audience. The applause was deafening.
The curtains came down on another spectacular show by the hugely talented teams of TCS.
The high achievement would not have been possible without the collective effort of all concerned. We look forward to a repeat next year confident of even greater height of excellence.
