Rule of the land

South City International School presented a debate for its secondary section recently. The motion proposed by the house was — India needs a benevolent dictator. Shukla Chattopadhyay, an assistant teacher at the school, was the moderator. “Elections are round the corner. Schoolchildren need to be sensitised about how the country is run by those in power. They must know their current affairs and what is happening around them. Through this debate we wanted to sensitise the young minds,” she said.

Shades of life

La Maternelle High School held its annual concert at Kala Mandir recently. The theme was Colours of Life with each performance depicting a different emotion. “We have completed 50 years. It is a great feeling. Our children are our superstars and each one is special to us,” said principal Vandana Paul.

The chief guest on the occasion was Maureen Forest, the founder-director of Hope Foundation. “You children are our hope for tomorrow. Please appreciate one another and believe in teamwork. You should always aim for excellence and not perfection,” she said.


Arunima Chowdhury of Apeejay School, Park Street, also received the prize for Best Actor (Female) at the theatre festival titled I am What I am — Aamar Kahaani at Mohar Kunj. Her name was inadvertently missed in Stage For Protest, April 12.
