MUSIC – THE RYTHMN OF LIFE

I believe that the art of music is universal without any barrier of language, culture,
color, creed or religion. It is a gift from God, which flows out from one’s heart only to
keep re-sounding and entering into the ear of another and touch hearts.

I am, indeed, in debt to God for His grace to help and contribute something to the aspiring
singers and musicians in the school and hostel for the past 6-7 years. In the words of
Gandhiji, “Education is all-round development of a child.” The School Management has
always been very supportive to ensure young promising student-talents in the school and
hostel get adequate opportunities to enhance and hone their singing and musical skills
in addition to their academics. Many students have participated in various competitions
and some even outside the state. A few major achievements of our school in the feld of
music are:

The school band, “Stonites Band” contested in “Confluence 2013” and “Confluence 2014” - Music Band category. Both competitions were held in the Singapore International School, Mumbai. It was a national level school band competition where the contestants had to perform one original Composition each on the theme, ‘Social Cause’. In the 2013 edition our school band wrote and performed, “Stand Up for Women” an original composition based on ‘the crimes committed against women.’ We were declared Champions and we also bagged the ‘Best Drummer’ award. Our school was represented by:-
