Master Bhavya and Master David spoke about this change and voiced their thoughts on the future scenario in their speech.
Master Keagan, our School Captain performed a monologue. The monologue began on a sombre tone expressing our feelings in the course of this lockdown and the scenario outside without people, especially children. However, the monologue ended on an optimistic and hopeful note, with a deep message ‘This too shall pass’. Following the monologue, Master Dayshaun and Master Vedant demonstrated the dos and don’ts to be followed during this pandemic through the art of miming. Next was a dance by the students to the tune of ‘Ek tu hi Bharosa’ to connect with God and pray to him to help us in this adversity.
