The Fancy Dress Competition, Class 1 2023-24

“Indian culture is the most complex and colorful culture on the planet. The way people look, their language, their food, their way of dressing, and their music and dance – everything changes every fifty or hundred kilometers in this country”

We are thrilled to share the resounding success of the much-awaited inaugural event in our Class 1 calendar, “The Fancy Dress Competition” held on 15th July at Shaheen. The theme for this event was “Bharatiyata,” a celebration of the rich and diverse tapestry of Indian history and culture.
The primary aim of the Bharatiyata fancy dress competition was to ignite a sense of pride and appreciation for India’s vibrant heritage among our young students. We encouraged them to dress up as iconic and influential personalities, events, or symbols from Indian history and culture. This experience allowed them to step into the shoes of these extraordinary individuals and immerse themselves in the fascinating world of Indianness.
With overwhelming enthusiasm, students from all sections actively participated, with more than 95% engagement from each section. The event showcased a kaleidoscope of traditional and tribal outfits from different states across India, including Kashmir, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Bengal, Konkan, Nagaland, Assam, Mizoram, and various others.
The students’ vibrant energy and confidence shone as they eloquently spoke about the state or region they represented. It was heartwarming to witness them sharing interesting facts and captivating stories about their chosen characters or themes, showcasing their profound knowledge and understanding of Bharatiyata.
Beyond the classroom, the Bharatiyata fancy dress competition provided a memorable and enjoyable learning experience, leaving a lasting impact on our students’ personal growth and their deep connection with their cultural heritage.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the parents for their unwavering support and arduous efforts in making this event a resounding success. Together, we created a delightful experience that will be cherished in the memory of our little eaglets, parents, and teachers for years to come.
We believe that fostering an appreciation for our rich Indian culture at an early age will help nurture well-rounded individuals who carry the essence of Bharatiyata with them, wherever they go.
Let us continue to celebrate and cherish the diverse hues of our Indian culture and heritage, as we look forward to many more such enriching events in the future.
