The evening’s cultural programme included two presentations by about 300 students of both the schools. South Point School presented ‘Happy Hues of Childhood’, evocative of that happy phase when life seems to be like a rainbow, vibrant and colourful, deriving sheer joy from fun and games. It was an attempt to drive home to children of modern times, trapped in a world of digital technology that they should enjoy their childhood by playing games and indulging in fun and laughter. South Point High School presented ‘Kolkata’ in which a group of children who had set out on a secret expedition to explore the City of Joy, were left with lasting impressions on their minds and souls.

The evening ended with a vote of thanks by Smt Reena Sharda, Vice Principal, South Point School and with the singing of the National Anthem.
