The Golden Jubilee year of the Children’s Academy Group of Schools was truly special marked with exuberant celebration and revelry. In this year-long journey of fun and excitement, we explored a number of possibilities to bring together our revered well-wishers and stakeholders. We organized our first ever Funfair to bring students, teachers and parents together to enjoy the evening to the fullest. The hard work, enthusiasm and energy of the staff and the children bore fruit.
With Christmas and New Year round the corner, festivity was in the air. Children’s Academy hosted a power-packed Annual Day extravaganza for three days! The event which was intended to be in the form of a Carnival was held at Fr. Justin Grounds, Malad West. The ground pulsated with scintillating music and a lively crowd. The carnival had something in store to allure everybody, be it children or adults. A very special segment catering to the interest of the kids included a variety of rides and games. The bouncy castle and candy station were other attractions. Children went crazy as they met their favourite movie characters in the form of mascots or posed at the selfie booths. An array of edible delights to tingle the taste buds, early bird raffle draw and exciting prizes ensured an unforgettable time with near and dear ones.
The spirited event commenced with a mellifluous group song rendered by the students of the Academy. What a befitting tribute to their alma mater! The Golden Jubilee logo was unveiled amidst splendid fireworks and thunderous cheering. The Coffee Table Book christened ‘Smaranika’ was launched at this apt moment. This colourful compilation is a tribute to those stalwart teachers who have been the pillars of strength and substance for CAGS and whose dedication to the cause of education needed a special mention.
The highlight on the occasion was the dramatization of the History of the school – a poignant and soul-stirring enactment of the life story of our founder Principal, Late Shri V. V. Bhat. The talented students in an enthralling song and dance narrative depicted his tumultuous journey that led to the founding of the school. The act presented like a flashback, was an amalgamation of varied emotions which left the audience astounded, many of them teary-eyed and melancholic. This stimulating saga concluded on a positive note exhibiting the many triumphant moments of CAGS, to reiterate the fact that through hard work, perseverance and faith in god, you can live your dreams.
As the evening advanced, the stage was set on fire and the audience was mesmerized by many more captivating performances. The scintillating stage shows by the children, teachers and the parents were a sight to behold and applauded by all present. The ambience, costumes, choreography was a mind-boggling visual treat. The curtains fell to this celebration with the parents and students dancing to their heart’s content on the reverberating lively beats of DJ Lloyd.
With everyone enjoying as one big family, the Carnival was another feather in the cap of the Children’s Academy Group of Schools. The bright faces and happy smiles were ample proof that the zazzy Carnival – a 50th year bonanza was a huge success. The zest and zeal demonstrated by an enthusiastic crowd of visitors and participants made the Carnival 2019 a memorable one. Gleaming and glittering with gold, the Carnival indeed was a wondrous surprise for the young and old.
