After the reports, the visual incarnation of the cosmic law, the CHANGE, started. More than 300 versatile Bhavanites from the primary, middle, and the senior wings of IES as well as their counterparts from Smart Indian School, Kuwait drew a legendry story onstage which depicted the extinction of mankind due to their unquenchable greed which led them to sign a deed with devil who plotted and brought their doom. But, the ever-benevolent, the ever-forgiving ‘Supreme Mighty’ made them sign the deed of the divine, the ‘CHANGE’ and resurrected them; to live to love, to rule to serve and to adapt to CHANGE.
The chief guest, Mr. Rishiraj Singh IPS addressed the audience. He appreciated the chosen theme of the annual day and congratulated the performers for their brilliance. In his speech, he emphasized the importance of the roles of teachers and parents in the lives of children. The prize distribution witnessed the proud display of Bhavan’s whiz-kids and the child prodigies onstage to receive the prizes of excellence and accomplishment. Soon after, time brought another moment of glory as ‘Tejas’, the school magazine, a churning furnace of creativity, was released by the chief guest. Finally, the day of infinite change ended with the vote of thanks proposed by Evelyn Biju George, the head girl, IES Kuwait.
