PYP Annual Day Function 2019
Like every successful year of Victorious Kidss Educares, our family celebrated its 22nd Annual function on the 12th and 14th of March 2019. But unlike any other year, the kids decided to explore their creative side by putting forth a real deal of entertainment. Being facilitated with the assistance of their beloved teachers and coordinators, they composed the most dynamic show worthy of proving that ‘VKE’s Got Talent’. That being the theme of the show, we had our own champions mimicking renowned artists Karan Johar, Malaika Arora Khan and Kiran Kher, to replicate the extremely entertaining and energetic ambience of the TV Show, India’s Got Talent. And importantly, these children were only 8 or 9 years of age. The show began with the magnificent melody of The Pirates of the Caribbean theme orchestrated by the Instrumental group of PYP (Primary Years Program) which left everyone tapping and humming to the legendary ‘He’s a Pirate’ theme song. Their energy set the bar for the evening demonstrating the exuberance which could be expected from the upcoming performances.
And after every performance, our three little judges Taran Johar, Mallika Arora and Shiren Kher added to the entertainment with their intensely involved, really smart, yet comical and witty commentaries and reactions. They displayed what and how they were different than their teachers, parents and certainly other children, their brothers and sisters, who did not have this ambience of ‘teaching and learning pedagogy of IB coupled with Vedanta.
As students, old or young, all of us, at the beginning of our learning journey, were a part of some school, with a classroom, a teacher, a sports team, a debate team, a lunchtime gang, a school bus gang and many other groups which helped us create friends and memories to be cherished for the rest of our lives. Everyone present in the audience was pushed down their personal memory lanes as the kids put up a simply hilarious narrative play portraying a day in ‘the life at VKE’. From the morning breakfast to their bus ride home, the usual situations or events in a student’s life such as the lunch breaks, the field trips, the PE classes or even the washroom breaks were so amusingly and entertainingly enacted that the audience did nothing but applaud as they laughed their guts out. One could see the efficacy of the children’s acting brought out the child in most parents, who were present.
