New Delhi, February 27
It could not have been a more mesmerizing show than what was put up by the tiny-tots of the Birla Vidya Niketan, Pushp Vihar, during their Appreciation Day on February 21 on their school premises.

The day belonged entirely to the tiny tots of nursery and KG, who took all the guests by surprise with their outstanding performance. The performance also reflected the effort and the hard work which the teachers of BVN had put in with almost 600 kids for the stupendous show.

One good thing that the school did was to have separated the shows put up by the children of KG and nursery, which kept the crowd within manageable limits and left the tiny-tots less tired than they would have been otherwise. Besides the parents got an opportunity to witness the show put up by their wards.

The programme started with an invocation to God — ‘Aaja Mere Prabhu Mere Dil Mein’. But what took the breadth away was the rendering of the famous `Do Re Me Fa So La Ti To’ by the students of KG. The performance had the audience looking at the kids with awe and greeting them with a thunderous applause.

In between, the KG students put up other fabulous items, which included rhythmic dancing, aerobics and a skit `Snow White and the Seven Drawfs’. The chief guest for the function was the Regional Director, South, Directorate of Education, Mr D.S. Pandit. While lauding the students he also appreciated the effort put in by the school authorities in reducing the burden of bags on the students. From the forthcoming session, the school authorities have decided to provide all the students with lockers on the premises, which will help in reducing their daily load.

The members of the Managing Committee of the school, who were present at the two functions, also hailed the students for their effort.
