“My prize is my work” Katharine Hepburn
On 3rd May 2015, Keats College celebrated its annual Music Day, Prize-Giving Day and Founders’ Day as joint events. The Prince Palace Hall, decorated by Mrs Mandarun and her team, was the venue for this important celebration.
Following a motivational testimony by Mr.Pillay Mulliah and students of lower and upper 6, the solemn prize-giving ceremony proceeded smoothly. Joy and pride radiated from prize-winners and their relatives as the students stepped on stage to receive their reward.
Solo and chorus songs interspersed the various prize-giving sessions. Among the musical items presented was Mr.Coopen’s vocal songs which were accompanied by an orchestra made-up by upper secondary students and our school DJ Mr.Rajiv to the great delight of all those present.
Refreshments were served at the closure of the ceremony. “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent” (Victor Hugo) – and on that day it was sheer joy and undiluted pride which were exuded with blazing fervor.
