It showcased the inner talent within the students from primary to middle school. It was a much antici- pated and colossal event which cap- tured the hearts and minds of every spectator. For parents, it was a won- derful platform to witness their chil- dren performing in front of them. The students have worked hard to make this show a grand success by rig- orously practising drama, dance and music for more than a month. Not only this, they involved themselves in ac- tivities like making the props for the theatre and other dance performances. Practicing the skit and memorizing the lines for the play was a task that students should be complemented for. Courageous, open-minded, caring and balanced are the attributes of the learner profiles that were exhibited by all the students throughout the even- ing. The theme for the Annual Day was Carpe Diem which means “Live the moment”, “Seize the day”. The past is in the past, the future is uncertain. All we have is today and this moment in time. In today’s fast paced world, we forget to live the moment and enjoy our lives. We are so busy focusing on preparing for the future that we forget to enjoy our life today. The performance by both Primary and middle school students rekindled the message of “living the moment” within each one of us.

  7. 7. Middle School’s Performance P a g e 7 Vote of Thanks Mr. Rajesh Vasudevan, Head of Middle and Sen- ior school, concluded the celebration by thanking and expressing his heartfelt gratitude to the teach- ers, various department heads and support staff for staging a successful event. He also congratulated the students on their wonderful performance. The only place where you can experience the flow of life is the Now. So to surrender is to accept the present moment unconditionally and without reservation. Your life’s journey has an outer purpose and an inner purpose. The outer purpose is to arrive at your goal or destination, to accomplish what you set out to do, to achieve this or that, which, of course, implies future. The outer purpose belongs to the horizontal dimension of space and time; the inner purpose concerns a deepening of your being in the vertical dimension of the timeless Now. Your outer journey may contain a million steps; your inner journey only has one: the step you are taking right now. This one step then becomes trans- formed into an expression of perfection, an act of great beauty and quality. This is both the purpose and the fulfilment of your inner journey, the journey into yourself. The Middle & Senior School’s production titled Elements, Essence and Emotions portrayed five characters synced with five ele- ments, conjugated with five themes that represented the other side of Carpe Diem… The five ele- ments : Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether, ether meaning the sky or space. These five elements are not only those that comprise the Universe, but also what we are made up of! As the saying goes, ''From dust to dust' these are also the elements that will form part of our end. Characters who failed to live the Now, characters who survived the Now, Characters who went beyond the Now, Charac- ters who conquered Now….These characters were taken from great works across globe, who contin- ue to simulate consciousness now and beyond. The Middle school left no stone unturned to portray these characters.
