Constitution Day.

WHEN HOW GREEN WAS MY VILLAGE ROCKED KIIT-IS

26th November 2016 was a special morning for KiiT International School. The students of the International Curriculum staged a special assembly as part of the ISA project. Incorporating Environmental Systems and Societies, English, Visual Arts, Hindi and CAS, a play, How Green Was My Village scripted by Mrs Nandita Mishra, IBDP Coordinator was staged during the assembly highlighting the environmental concerns of the indigenous people of Niyamgiri. A multi-lingual play, it touched a chord with the audience with its rustic humour and powerful message. As a collaborative effort, children of KISS (Tribal School) performed a Sambalpuri dance, which gave it a true tribal feel. The play highlighted the need to preserve indigenous knowledge societies and promote a culture of international mindedness with sustainable development practices. It emphasised the fact that children are the harbingers of change and they are the light at the end of the tunnel. An inspired performance by a very motivated and enthusiastic group of children, they enthralled the audience with their brilliance and their commitment. The play was directed by Mrs Nandita Mishra, Mrs Tora Paul Chowdhury and Ms Arpita Mahapatra and the rest of the ISA team. The cultural department, led by Mr Santosh Lenka, supported the cast with the dance performances. Mr Satya Ranjan Mahapatra, Faculty IBDP supervised the Audio team. Mrs Saswati Bal, Dr Mona Lisa Bal and other dignitaries in the audience appreciated and encouraged the children with their presence as guardians and voices of poise and equanimity. As 26th November is also Constitution Day, the entire school took an oath pledging to honour and respect the Constitution at all times, as the law of the Land. Regards
