Founders Day 2018
DAY 1 – Founders Day is traditionally an important day in the school calendar when members of the school community, students, parents and staff meet to commemorate those who founded the school and have given a great deal of resources to its development. The days were celebrated with fervor, zest and enthusiasm. An extravaganza of activities were conducted and designed to contribute towards an all round development of our young students.
It was a wonderful opportunity to show-case the incredible learning environment and connected community that Hopetown has developed.
The first half of the day started with Parent Teacher meetings and nukkad natak, a well performed street play banning the use of plastic, the proceeds of which went to the Mitr Club. The evening ended with the Award Ceremony and The Show Choir melodiously presenting four songs among them being ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from the Disney movie soundtrack ‘Moana’, ‘Dream On’ by the American rock band Aerosmith and ‘Sweet Dreams’ by the Eurythmics
Day 2 – Started with a Science, Art and Photography Exhibition and ended with Anantaya (the Limitless Krishna).
It was a display of the omnipotent and benevolent characteristics of the supreme being – God. Students depicted different phases of Lord Krishna, like the Raas-Leela and his role in the war of Kurukshetra mentioned in the great epic The Mahabharata.
This spectacular dance and music performance by the students depicted Dance Drama, constituting semi classical and Odissi dance pieces which was accompanied by dialogues.
