‘Stagekraft’ – Theatre Festival in DPS

Delhi Public School, Chandigarh hosted the Theatre Festival ‘StageKraft’ from 19th May to 24th May, 2017.

Mr. Virender Chaudary, HCS, Asstt. Estate Officer, UT, Chandigarh, Ms. Kriti Garg, IAS, SDM (South), Chandigarh and Bibi Harjinder Kaur, Chairperson, CCPCR graced the occasion as Chief Guests.

The festival was a celebration featuring three outstanding high school student productions, namely ‘The Secret Garden’ based on the novel of Frances Hodgson Burnett, ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’ and ‘Ghasiram Kotwal’ – a play by Vijay Tendulkar with flavours of political satire. All the three plays provided a platform to the students to enhance their verbal and non-verbal expression.

Each day the play was followed by the Annual Prize Distribution Ceremony of Classes IX, X and XII respectively for the session 2016-17. The young achievers were felicitated and applauded for excelling in academics, sports and co-curricular activities.

The Principal, Mrs. Reema Dewan in her motivating address stressed on the importance of co-curricular activities as playing, practising and performing develop a sustained focus of mind and body. She further added that academic scores form only one dimension in life but not the ‘be all’. She urged the parents to let their children relish every moment of their growing years.
