Just as the monsoon bids adieu to the land of South India, the air is filled with mirth, joy, and happiness for the arrival of Onam, this significant festival was celebrated at its best in CPS Global School Thirumazhisai. Entire CPSGS family showed off their high spirits and their incredibly attractive traditional attire vibrantly bringing the virtual meeting alive with exotic colours than one can ever imagine.
Onam special assembly was magnificently hosted by the students of IGCSE YR1, in the presence of a few esteemed guests. The assembly kicked off with the display of the delightful Onam inspired artwork by the tiny tots of ELP. From vegetable prints and coloured paper bits of pookalams to paintings of Onam celebration, it was fascinating to see the colourful and vivid artwork done by the ELP students and their interesting unique perceptions of the festival.
The students were enlightened by our esteemed guests, Mr. Thilak Rammohan a well known cinematographer, actor and social activist and Mr. Mani Maran a cinematographer, photographer, and painter who graced the occasion with their presence on the occasion of the World Photography Day competition and to disclose the winners of the competition. The eye-catching display of the teachers’ and students’ photographs were truly astounding, each unique and captivating in its own way. The air was charged with excitement as the winners of the competition were announced. Every mesmerizing work with a deep hidden message conveyed were the highlights of the day. Few honourable and special mentions were also declared, all well deserved.
The session was followed up by results of the National Women’s Equality Day competitions like Poster-making, Symposium on Toys being Gender Neutral and a thought-provoking debate on whether Modern Families were Holding Women Back sparked some interesting arguments. It was also intriguing to hear the students talk about their unique experiences taking part in these events and the knowledge they accumulated in the process of learning.
