ANNUAL PRIZE GIVING, 2014
The Annual Prize Giving of MCGS was off to a tremendous start on the 18th of October, with its numerous exhibitions. These exhibitions displayed the hard work and effort of students from classes 4th – 12th. They were mainly academic and included displays of some excellent projects and assignments by our students, along with a particular theme that surrounded the entire exhibition. The History exhibition’s theme was on World War II and the SUPW exhibition showcased the work done by our girls with the people of Datta Village and so on.
At 4:00 pm, all we could hear were the footsteps of our girls who marched proudly with their respective houses. The Annual Sports Day consisted of junior and senior drills, along with four athletic events and marching.
Later in the evening, a variety entertainment program was organized for the parents, in which students from both – the junior and the senior section performed a series of dances and musical performances. The highlights of the evening were the junior orchestra and a dramatic monologue by one of our senior students. This program was truly appreciated and enjoyed by everyone.
The second day of our prize giving consisted of the main entertainment program, which was a play conceptualized and powered by our students. The play showcased six key episodes of Indian History, that are the reasons for our Indianness. It was a docu-drama in the true sense of time. The play was directed by professional playwright and director – Mr. Parnab Mukherjee, who, because of his experience in theatre and creative intellect, made the play a huge success. The play truly reminded us of our Indianness and therefore, did justice to its title: “Old Dusk to New Dawn”. The play was followed by Principal’s Dinner for the parents and students.
Then came the last and the most awaited program: The Annual Prize Giving ceremony, which took place on the third day. With eminent educationist Mr. H.L. Dutt as our Chief Guest, this ceremony could not have gotten better. Mr. Dutt told us “The determination to do something can lead us to great limits, and therefore, success.” We all were extremely inspired by his words. A lot of our students received academic and individual trophies for consistent excellence in a particular field. Post the announcement of the recipient of the Best House Trophy, which was awarded to Karunawati House, our principal: Ma’am Khandke, declared the School Captain for the academic year 2015-16.
Overall, the annual prize giving was a huge success and left all of us awed and most of us dignity, as we moved towards our respective transport to go home and the school closed for the much awaited Diwali break.
