VIVA

VIVA 5, the annual festival of Vibgyor High was bigger and better but resonating with the same enthusiasm.

 

The event took off with the much awaited competitions and workshops which were held from 4to 11 December 2013.  A platform was provided to each and every child of varied age groups to showcase their talent and live their dreams. It was every student’s window to the world of knowledge and learning.

Competitions like Dress me up, Look alike, Chance Pe Dance, Krazy kiya re and Razmatazz had the wonderful audience of parents and teachers tapping their feet along with the participants. At the same time, competitions like Clay Play, Your World Your View,  Animatoon revealed the artist in every child.

 

          The competitions were age specific and merit was the ultimate winner. An extremely heartening feature was the participation by other schools. VIVA is truly making its presence felt and evolving as a true inter school festival.

          The various workshops that were conducted saw a large number of participants, many of them as young as three year olds eager to pick up new skills. Workshops like Angels Creation, Create your own Flowers and Ribbon Making saw a large number of eager children trying their hand at creating something new and beautiful.

          Adding to the fun and excitement was the Fun Zone with some unique 1-minute games. The prizes to be won simply served as the icing on the cake. Activities like Pottery, Bangle Making and Tattoo Making added to the entire festive atmosphere prevalent.

          The Viva concerts showcased a multitude of activities ranging from drama to music to dance. It was immensely satisfying to see each and every child perform on stage with great confidence.

          VIVA 5 was a beautiful culmination of all the planning, preparation and focused effort by the students and the entire team at VIBGYOR HIGH – Malad, Goregaon.

The most awaited and fun-filled event of VIBGYOR HIGH was once again here to make the students take a break from their studies and enjoy thoroughly. This year Viva comprised of different workshops and competitions from pre-primary to secondary students.

Students across Grade 1 – 6 assembled a resplendent pageant of art, music, dance and drama after a month long hectic yet enthusiastic preparation. The main idea of organizing these competitions and workshops was to give students a chance to exhibit their aptitude towards extra-curricular activities. Some events allowed parents and their wards to participate jointly. To add the wow factor to the event, the school had organized the ‘VIVA Carnival’, with various food and game stalls designed for children’s enjoyment. The parents enjoyed their day out with their children.

The final concert was held on the third day at the MLR Convention Hall. The theme for the pre primary concert was ‘What on earth is the matter?’ League of Extraordinary Men’ was the theme of Viva 5 which brings forth the main aim of our school, i.e. creating future leaders with concrete human values. The children participated with full zeal and enthusiasm representing their school with high dignity and honour in front of their parents. Issues like nervousness and stage fright had no role to play as these young and budding artists stole the show with their immense talent and confidence.

The parents found the script, song, choice of dance, venue, and duration of the program satisfactory. They participated enthusiastically along with their wards in all the competitions designed for them. Some of them were so creative in making the props needed for the various competitions. It helped in parents bonding with their children as they spent quality time with them. This also helped them in discovering or recognizing their own hidden talents.

 

We look forward to seeing the same spirit and bonding and eagerly await Viva 6 next year!Image

Vibrant Viva!!!

(22- 24November 2013)

 

The energy, enthusiasm and celebration at VIBGYOR HIGH Horamavu epitomized all that Viva stands for. The whole school had a colourful atmosphere with three days of fun and frolic, of parents bonding with children and little ones showcasing immense talent. The response was indeed overwhelming and as our Principal remarked, “Although this is our second Viva, it certainly feels like the first.” Registrations kept flowing in, right down to the wire.

 

With excitement across the school the event began with competitions which took off on the 22November 2013.

Competitions were well appreciated by the judges and all those who attended Viva. One of the more popular events was the Bollywood Dance: “Mom and Me”. Although the title said “Mom and Me”, fathers too were interested and got on to the dance-floor with their kids. This was one competition which ensured that parents spent good quality time practicing with their children before participating. The enthusiasm displayed by the participants won the hearts of all spectators.

 

Another popular event was “Food Craft”. These little chefs with their nimble fingers carved vegetables and dressed salads with such panache that they left all the adults astounded! The judge, a renowned executive chef from Hotel Opus, Mr. Daniel Selvaraj remarked, “The talent that these children have is astounding. They have the makings of future chefs. One of them even made balsamic vinaigrette from scratch. I cannot believe that these are children from grades three and four. Amazing talent! ”

 

The workshops, conducted on 23November 2013, enjoyed immense participation with some events boasting over 100 participants. It was a pleasure to watch children unearth their latent talents, be it in the field of pottery, art work or turning out delicious recipes. Parents who accompanied children and joined in the workshop had a splendid time and many shared that they had been transported to their childhood and wished this could happen more often.

 

As the name conjures and in true Viva spirit, the three day extravaganza culminated with a scintillating array of dance, music and drama on 24 November 2013 at the MLR Convention Centre. The Viva concerts were held in three shows distributed across the day and showcased breathtaking performances by our students. Parents were enthralled by the grandeur and ambience and appreciated the work put in by the staff and students. The whiff of the Viva plethora will remain in the air until the fever sets in next term.

The Pre-Primary concert held on 16 November 2013 was a joy to watch, with the children looking lovely and bright in their costumes. Everyone enjoyed and appreciated the hard-work, the children had put in.

The highlight of Viva 5 was the Primary-Secondary concert “The League of Extra-ordinary Men.” The Concert was a blend of entertainment, fun and energy, highlighting the strong issue of child labour in a subtle yet emphatic way. The students were enthusiastic and well prepared for the show, whether it was the skit or the dance sequences.

The issue of child-labour was handled in such an interesting way that everyone was left dumb-founded by its true simplicity.

The bright and beautiful costumes, enormous stage set-up, sound and light system and the props, all added to the glamour and magnificence of the concert.
