It was that time of the year and the atmosphere at the Senior Wing DPS Patna was charged with renewed energy as students and teachers alike were ready to rejoice in the spirit of Christmas. Festoons, stars, mistletoes and the colour red dominated the ambiance, lending the school a bright and gay atmosphere. To top it all was the display of the nativity scene at the Plaza which was the centre of attention all morning. The manger, the small figurines of Joseph, Mary, infant Jesus, shepherds, and the sheep lent an authentic stamp of celebration.
The assembly started with a speech where the teacher initiated the festivities. It was followed by the students who reckoned the spirit of Christmas by enumerating upon the values like caring, sharing, giving and also spreading the message of peace, oneness and joy for all. Not to forget were the students who with all enthusiasm presented the Christmas tableaux on the open air stage adding to the authenticity of the ambiance. The school then ricocheted and reverberated with Christmas carols like Joy to the world…, While the shepherds watched……, Kali Kali… and finally Jingle Bell……
Students dressed as Santa Claus arrived making the atmosphere full with frolic. Amidst singing and waving the many Santas distributed sweets, much to the delight of eager students.
