Jamshedpur, Aug. 24: Little Flower School’s (LFS) annual fest Odyssey is not only a horde of innumerable competitions but it is also a celebration.
The first day of Odyssey 2017 began with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by the school Principal, Sister Hilda D’ Souza and chief guest Ranjit Dhar, head of Human Resource, Commercial Vehicles at Tata Motors Pantnagar Plant.
All sat waiting for the council dance to begin. It is usually very exciting because most of the members in the council are not trained dancers every year. This year too council crossed this flaw with ease and gave the best performance of the day indeed.
Odyssey which still remains the most enthralling and awaited event of the year began with Eastern Solo Dance. The gorgeous participants full of grace performed wonderful steps on the stage and this event was of course great to begin with in the morning.
Next was Western Vocals Solo which was a complete switch over from eastern to western.
It was followed by a very interesting event that is Boom Merchant. Participants had been given certain items like sarees, umbrellas, pencil boxes and so on which they had to advertise.
The preparation time was half an hour and the participants really came up with spontaneous creative ideas and skillful acting on stage.
This was followed by the IT quiz and Antakshari. Not only the Participants on stage but also the teacher moderators and the audience were a part of both these interactive events.
Instrumental solo was next on the list and students showcased their skill in playing various instruments like the guitar, keyboard and tabla.
Clash of Bands was the grandest event of the day as the audience sang along excitedly with the teams on stage.
The day finally ended with Choreography which had the theme ‘Old is Gold’. The dancers took everyone all back to an era of rich Bollywood filmography and beauties.
LFS teacher and in-charge of Odyssey Sangeeta Chatrath, said, this year we had an overwhelming participation from students in a total of 52 events.
Over the past 27 years, Odyssey, a conglomeration of uniqueness and talent, has continued to be the most awaited event of every student in Little Flower School.
This year the overwhelming participation of students in the 52 events has been beyond the extrapolation.
This has been a journey transcending the sands of time and has come a long way garnering experience from everything witnessed over the past few months, beginning from the preliminary rounds to the semi-finals and of course the finals that is yet to be experienced.
