Platinum Jubilee Celebration - Musical Night

St. Columba's school celebrated its Platinum Jubilee with a Musical Night bash on Friday, the 16th of December, 2016. With the promise of excitement and adrenaline rush, the event was one of a kind. The concert was open to everyone including past pupils and students from all Delhi schools. Over 2,600 youngsters descended in the campus that evening.

The school bands Skyline and Hectic from St. Columba's and Amity International School, Mayur Vihar respectively, set the tone for the evening with their outstanding performances. Well-known DJs Bangloud, Mindbass and Doctor Daniel played some electrifying EDM music. Popular Boy-band, PAN!C became instant favourites just after their first song and serenaded the crowd with more hit numbers.  Finally, the most awaited DJ for the evening, Candice Redding mesmerised the audience with her scintillating music. The variety of food stalls satiated the hunger of the dancing crowd. With state-of the-art technology and equipment, courtesy Pearl Entertainment, Columba's ground was transformed into the most happening party in town. The brilliant visual graphics by Columbans and support lent by LIMN Entertainment made the experience enthralling.

In the end, the Principal, Br. E.V. Miranda proposed the vote of thanks and invited everyone to the Columban Carnival to be held on the 5th of February, 2017 for more action and enjoyment.

Marking the Jubilee year of St. Columba's School, our Principal took the initiative to invite retired ex-teachers who had served in the institution and also the ex-pupils of our school.

The air echoed with applause and the eyes turned moist as the ex-pupils presented a token of their gratitude to the retired teachers.

This was followed by fun-filled extravaganza as the junior school boys danced to the tune of 'I love my teacher and sang songs conveying their LOVE for their teachers - their 'heroes'.

The boys from the middle and senior school expressed their gratitude by presenting eye-catching dance performances and foot tapping song medleys.

The event culminated in a grand lunch hosted in the middle school ground.
