Vidyashilp Academy, Phase I students celebrated Christmas on a cold winter morning. All were dressed in hues of red, green and white enjoying the array of Christmas special programme presented by the students of Phase I. Teachers and students sang and danced to feet tapping carols which brought memories of many Christmases celebrated by all present. 
The festivities began with the nativity scene, and a splendid rendition of the song 'Mary did you know', by Suzanne, an educator from the French Department accompanied by students. Mr. Anand, our very own dance teacher spoke about the real meaning of Christmas. The 5th graders concluded the event with the most awaited performance, the Jingle bell rock dance...the festivities left us all nostalgic about another year coming to an end…and longing already for another Christmas to come!

He concluded the session by urging the students to see the world with a different perspective as they are the future that will shape the world.

Some student responses - 'Divyanshu Sir’s conquests and adventures have been self-driven. He did not do anything for the sake of others, and kept himself happy by doing activities that interest him.' , 'Mr. Divyanshu’s story struck a chord in all our minds and rang a bell, waking us up and showing us the reality of the way society functions. He sent the message of his life being like a game of chess, where his weakest pawn made the strongest move. He used his capability of hearing every whisper and the swaying of every leaf to his advantage and overcame his barriers.'
