It is my privilege to be a part of “The Parents’ Day and 21st Anniversary” of our school, held on February 26th in Nepal Academy Hall, Kamaladi as an active member. Parents’ Day is an event organized by our school to honor all the parents of the school. In the Parents’ Day, selected students showcase their talent under the mentorship of ECA instructors in support of teachers to entertain the parents. One noteworthy thing is that our school has provided opportunities to perform nearly 650 students in events and more than 1300 parents attended the event. I can proudly say that the program was a huge success.
I have a connection with music and love to express myself through playing the guitar and beat boxing. Since I was involved in guitar I was selected to perform on Parents’ Day. I, along with my group members, performed two guitar pieces named Auralee and Helicopter that have been modified and combined by our music instructor Niresh Rai. Though it was challenging at first, we practiced hard and achieved perfect coordination while performing on the stage.
I was selected as host of the events too. According to the schedule provided by ECA Coordinator Pawan Thakuri, I along with my co-host got two performances to host the program. That sounds less but took a lot of effort and practice to a successful performance. I and my co-host, Dikshya Thapaliya as well as other host members of the cultural and musical performances got regular mentorship from our mentors Neelie Maharjan and Dhana Mahat to finalize the script, overcome nervousness and develop confidence along with stage etiquettes. We hosted both performances in the English language. We were dressed up in Tamang Dress to showcase cultural diversity. Despite the hectic backstage environment, I successfully performed on the guitar and hosted the program.
I made great memories in the program that I’ll never forget. At the end of the program, all the hosts of different performances, including myself, called on stage as an appreciation towards our efforts. I want to thank my teachers for exploring my potential.
Thank you to all the parents who attended, this program wouldn’t have been possible without you.
