A Very Merry Christmas


IHS students had a very merry Christmas. On Christmas eve, the Junior School students went carolling from house to house distributing chocolatey delights. Middle School students watched Nightmare Before Christmas. All gathered in Tarana on Christmas morning for a special Christmas assembly with the theme ‘ Peace on Earth, Good Will to All Men’. The assembly began with a piano rendition by Kaavya Muthuganesan of the popular Christmas carol ‘Carol of the Bells.’ This was followed by a presentation in rounds of the well-known nursery rhyme  ‘Christmas is Coming’ by Junior School students. The Middle School students presented Noël Regney and Gloria Shayne Baker’s classic ‘Do You Hear What I Hear?’ The Senior School a cappella group then made their debut performance with the favourite ‘What a Wonderful World’. Moving away from traditional Christmas tunes, a motley group of Senior boys took to the stage to perform ‘One Tribe’ by the American group The Black Eyed Peas. The showstopper was their second piece, where they asked all to get on their feet to a Punjabi-style ‘Jingle Bells’ originally composed by ‘Bobo’ Amartya Rahut. To add some Christmas cheer, as students exited the assembly, they were treated to a scrumptious piece of black forest cake. Students enjoyed a leisurely afternoon at home and gathered at night for a special moonlight dinner in the Gnana Shala gardens with their favourite Christmas melodies humming in the background. Senior Students proceeded to the AV Hall to watch the timeless classic It’s A Wonderful Life.
