01-DEC-2015: The Blossoms School recently illuminated the Kennedy Hall Auditorium of the Aligarh Muslim University with the celebration of its annual function, 'Luminance 2015' at the auditorium.
The audience, which included the AMU teachers and University Drama Club members, were left in delight, with the epically bright and colorful performances by Blossoms School students.
The Aligarh Muslim University Vice Chancellor, Lt General Zameer Uddin Shah (retd), who attended the function as the Chief Guest said that this was one of the best performances he had ever seen by school students.
He further said that these performances by school students show that Blossoms School is capable of producing future leaders for the community and the country.
"I would like to urge the parents and teachers of these youngsters to motivate them to join Armed Forces, Civil Services and other elite jobs where leadership qualities are required," said the Vice Chancellor adding that these school students should aspire to attend the best educational institutes of India including the Aligarh Muslim University.
The AMU Vice Chancellor also urged the students to have perfection in information technology. "We have entered in an era in which a person, who is not technology savvy, will be considered as an illiterate," he said adding that it is imperative to have the best knowledge of information technology.
Meanwhile, Mr Midhat Ullah Khan Shervani, Managing Trustee of Blossoms School said that the school is grateful to AMU administration for letting them host the event at the university's Kennedy Hall. He also appreciated the efforts of the University Drama Club for helping the students in the preparation of the programme.
The highlight of the event was a play on Sir Syed Ahmad Khan's life, 'Sir Syed Ka Ilmi Safar'. Performed by Blossoms School students, the play showed Sir Syed's role in bridging the gap between the Oriental and the Western world in laying foundation of the Mohammedan Anglo Oriental College, which later became the Aligarh Muslim University. The play depicted Sir Syed's lifelong efforts to strike a balance between tradition and modernity, traditional Oriental and Western scholarship and religion and science. The play ended with the school students singing the University Tarana (anthem).
Blossoms School Students Choir also sang their school anthem, 'Shama-e-Ilm', which was followed by songs and dance performances and a children's play known as 'Ants and Grasshoppers' by Ross Mihalko and Donna Swift. These school students also showed their Kung Fu skills, which left the audience wonderstruck.
While delivering the vote of thanks, Mr Midhat Ullah Khan Shervani specially thanked Professor F S Sheerani for his guidance in preparations of the programme. The porgramme had AMU teachers, students, Blossoms School staff, school students and their parents in the audience.
