The Pre-primary children through an exceptional skit portrayed an excerpt from the legends of Lord Ganesha. And walked the Ramp as Bal Ganeshas, a treat to the eyes. The Primary and Secondary wings hailed Lord Ganesha in soulful recitation speeches and dances which bore cheer on the occasion of Lord Ganesha as omnipresent on earth.

He was most appreciative of the various Bal Ganeshas from different homes and shared his ardent desire to get back to normal school with the students.
The Academic Director, Ms. G. Sree Devi spoke on the significance of the festival and how Lord Ganesha amidst this festivity removes all obstacles, brings people together and teaches children to obey parents and elders as they know what is best for their child.
A prayer rendition on the violin brought the celebration programme to a close. But not so for, Parents took over not only to appreciate the programme but also commend the online classes which despite the unavoidable glitches and difficulties were praiseworthy. They seized this opportunity to thank the School Management for encouraging the students to perform on the online platform in various activities, thus ‘making life interesting and exciting for them’.

The programme ended on a high note leaving the participants and viewers with an unfathomable feeling of fulfillment for having been a part of the Ganesha Chavithi celebrations at JHPS-2020.
