On this special
day to celebrate valor, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil, we wish
everyone the bliss and beauty of the festival on Dussehra.
Xaverians of Grade 1 celebrated the special assembly on 4th Oct,
where they spoke on the significance of this festival. The ceremony began with
lighting the lamp, followed by prayers. Children were dressed as Lord Rama,
Lakshmana, Sita, Hanuman along with his Vanar Sena, Ravana etc. They depicted
the story behind the celebration of this festival, through a musical dance.
They enacted scenes starting from the banishment of Rama, to him being welcomed
back in Ayodhya, post his victory over Ravana. The teachers dramatized the
Ram-Lila, to acquaint the tiny tots with concept of Dussehra, so that we
understand its importance easily. Everyone including the staff, and other
students enjoyed all the scenes, especially the war scene between Vanar Sena,
and Meghnada Sena. A rich variety of plays, Songs and dance sequences were
presented by the tiny tots. The presentation and skillful execution was
spellbinding, leaving the audience asking for more.
Principal of the
school, Mr. Stanley Anthony apprised the students of the history and message
behind this festival and applauded the students for their enchanting
performance. A huge effigy of Ravana was burnt after the Ram Lila.
