English Day-2014

November 5th was a colourful day in the calendar of "Mother Victoria" as her Sons and Daughters celebrated their English Day ....The Ridgeway Hall was packed to the rafters with staff and students and guests.

From the "Welcome Address" at 11.00am to the "Vote of Thanks" at 1.10pm there was no let up in the interest of both performers and audience.  A healthy contest was going on among the events recitation, speeches, dramas, songs, oratory, solo acting, news reading, spoken error correction and so on.... in terms of the standard.
It was an ideal occasion to trigger a genuine interest and involvement in the students towards English.. The speciality of the function was that it was a "hundred percent" students-staged event.  the teachers of English Mr George Jeyabalan, Mrs Vanmathy Sathiyaloganathan, Mr Sivakumar and Mr Thirikkumaran were just facilitators and not intervened even in announcing!
Both the Principal and the Chief guest mrs Selvarani Thevaraja praised and blessed the performers in their addresses.  All in all, it was a "sweet day" as the events made the audience happy, quiet and above all, did not test their patience!
