Sthaayi 2016

An interschool drama competition was held on 10th September 2016, at SSVM school by Sthaayi – ‘theatre for children’ organization. Students of Std 8th and 9th, who had excellent skills of acting, dialogue presentation and with good stage skills participated with great enthusiasm and zeal. Many schools had come up with plays of historic importance, devotion to teachers, fairy tales and social awareness. ‘To thine own self be true’ – an extract from Polonius advice to his son in shakespeare’s Hamlet was our chosen title. The play dealt with instances focusing on the existence of corruption in India and how Bharath Matha reacts to them. The play ended with an oath taking by the students against corruption. The idea was appreciated by the panel of judges and webagged the third place among 15 schools.
