Salmiya Indian Model School (SIMS) hosted a program filled with lively performances to mark its Annual Day celebrations on 28 November. The students of Class 4 and 5 enthralled the audience of parents, teachers and students. Reaven D’Souza, Managing Editor of The Times Kuwait was the chief guest on the occasion.
Dr. Anis Ahmed, school director, welcomed the parents and guests. The cultural program started with the Class 4 students presenting the five elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Space, under the theme ‘Elements of Nature’. The first session, a futuristic dance drama about exploring outer space, was followed by an energetic dance performance to the tune of Bollywood blockbusters that celebrated different elements.
Subsequently, students of Class 5 presented their theme, ‘Virtues of Life’, which was a dance drama about Neerja Bhanot, the purser who sacrificed her life trying to save the passengers of the Pan Am Flight 73. The takeaway message was about being courageous in life. A contemporary drama on the importance of discipline in one’s life was followed by songs and dances that highlighted other core virtues like kindness, patriotism, respect and hard work.
The program concluded with an inspiring speech, and everyone left the function with a pledge to work towards a better tomorrow by imbibing the lessons presented on the occasion.
