Judges for the various events were indeed so grateful to have shared with us a small performance and to have showcased their thoughts with us. The excitement continued on the second day also, which included a special event for the winners of JAM and Shipwreck. The dance and music teams did set the stage on fire through their vibrant performances. We had also brought in a new event to encourage the native talents of the state, “Folk dance with action”. The events brought out every bit of talent hidden to have them showcased in such grandeur.

On the eve of the second day, we had the valedictory function. Playback singer, Mr. M. J. Sriram was kindly consented to be our Chief guest, who enthralled us by humming one of his favorite tunes to us. Also, the overall trophy was bagged by Bala VidyaMandir.

There are indeed a lot of people to be thanked for putting in their kind support from senior staff, teachers and students. In short, Kalavaibhavam, just as always struck a lot of minds with memories to be remembered for a long time.

Orientation Programme by Prof. Vipenendran, from Anna University

Prof. Vipinendra from Anna University conducted workshop on 5.6.2012.
The two hour session was based on the topic “stress management and behavioral aspects of children and their remedies”. He introduced different motivation techniques which a teacher should introduce in her classroom to make her teaching lively and interesting. The resource person conducted different games for teachers which really boasted us and transformed us into a new individual.

The session had video clippings of different people who achieved many things in their life in-spite of being physically challenged. Teachers were moved after watching those videos and we learnt the way they motivated themselves to achieve happiness in their lives.

The workshop had an impact in all the teacher’s mind and totally energized us and to start this academic year with full confidence to achieve a lot in our career.
