Jamshedpur: Rhapsody-2015, an annual cultural and literary fest of Jamshedpur Youth Organisation for Tomorrow’s India (JYOTI) — an organisation of city-based schools to promote young talent — will be organised by Loyola School this year.
More than 1,000 students from 16 city schools are expected to participate in the day-long event, scheduled on August 22.
The JYOTI Club of Loyola School is organising Rhapsody, the annual inter school Competition at Tata Auditorium, XLRI. Students from 16 city schools will participate in the competition.
The JYOTI unit of Loyola School has made special arrangements to make the function a memorable one this year.This year, the fest will witness more than 25 fun-filled and creative events.
Other than the regular events — quiz, western and eastern group dances and collage-making — categories several fun filled events have been introduced this year to make the function different and more interesting.
“This year the events will be held on Loyola School campus and we want to make it unique. We have introduced new events to attract students and give them a platform to display talent and win accolades too,” said a member of JYOTI.
Though the fest witnessed a lot of mismanagement and differences between students, leading to a tussle in the previous years, this time the officials of JYOTI will take precautions to prevent any untoward incident.
“The aim of Rhapsody is to unite students of various schools and foster friendship among them,” Father Sebastian Puthenpura, principal of Loyola School said.
“If any student is found guilty of indiscipline, the entire school will have to pay the price — they will be disqualified,” said a senior teacher. The participating schools have also started preparing their teams for the fest.
