‘Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away’.
And this is exactly what we hope will happen to you when you see your children perform on the March 15.
You can catch the tiniest of the lot, the level I children – shouting slogans with Gandhi ji, as earnest citizens of India and also as citizens who came together with the leaders of the first war of independence in 1857, to plan the ouster of the Britishers. Isn’t it amazing that these young kids are experiencing the churning of history at this young tender age! Initially, when the practices started, these little fellows had to be slowly shepherded to the center stage to take up their position – looking utterly lost and bewildered at the sudden change in school routine. Gradually, with consecutive practices, the bewildered look gave way to shy smiles, as the older children and teachers would either cuddle them or pull their cheeks with “cho chweet” said repeatedly to them. And now, as the final day draws closer, they look somewhat confident and also seem to enjoy their routine. Though, we do have a few who would rather stay in the classroom and study!
The level II children have amazed all of us. They took to stage and dancing like fish to water! It never ceases to amaze us to see them enter the stage with a supreme confident look in their eye and a visible confidence in their steps. There are times when the teacher may miss the cue to their entry, having got distracted by something, but these little angels, they never miss their cue. There were days when their steps were getting changed daily, which would get us worried that they may get confused. But no! every change was adapted with perfect ease.
Level III children have displayed amazing maturity. They are carrying some very important scenes on their fragile shoulders.
Dear kids! You make our hearts swell with pride!
As promised we are uploading the videos of practice sessions. Don’t forget to check out the videos They have been uploaded for you to see, enjoy and appreciate the hard work your children are putting in.
We are getting regular queries about how to make maximum usage of the blog. For this reason, we have requested Mr. Ravish Gupta, CEO of WIPL, our Technology Partner, to put in a few posts, giving guidelines about the blog, how to integrate your mobile phone on twitter and to become a member of The Palace School fan club on Facebook. Yes! We are now going to be on Facebook too !
I take this opportunity to thank Mr. Ravish Gupta, father of Vanya Gupta level I, from the core of my heart. Infact, the entire Palace School family would like to express their gratitude, for without his initiative, support & undying passion for this project, this blog would not have been possible. So do watch out for his posts from time to time to get the maximum benefits of this initiative.
I would also like to thank all the parents for the wonderful comments you’ve left on my posts. When we see your positive feedback, it makes all of us more confident & energized and yet a little nervous too, as the anticipation and excitement for the event has been rising day by day. We are confident that the hardwork that the entire team of our teachers & kids have put in would make the final day an unforgettable experience for the spectators.
Looking forward to your presence on March 15.
