Diwali Celebration (29th October 2015)
M.C.T.M. Chidambaram Chettyar International School, Chennai celebrated Diwali on Thursday, 29th October 2015. Students came to school jubilantly dressed in vibrant traditional attire. There was an inter-class competition for grades 6 to 9 on the installation of a structure of their choice using sweets. Students of IB and IGCSE coordinated with enthusiasm and came up with interesting displays. In the afternoon, students were treated to a performance by a band of odyssey dancers from Pondicherry. The dances were characterised by various stances which involved stamping of the foot and striking of various postures as seen in Indian sculptures. The graceful eye movements, body postures and intricate footwork building in a crescendo to a climax at the end held the audience enthralled. It was a novel experience for the students.
