‘AGE’-  Avant garde Essence- 2019


Every year, on the first Friday of July, the school swells up with both pride and people. For it is the day it plays host to Avant  garde  Essence, one of the city's pioneering cultural fests. This year was no different.

The tenth edition of the trailblazing event began in its typically exceptional fashion. The Inaugural Ceremony sparkled with the presence of Ms. Grace Karunaas, noted Playback Singer and Television Personality. While she stirred the gathering with her remarks on school life and extra-curricular activities, her performance of her hit song "Seena Thaana Doi " had some of the volunteers erupting into a spontaneous flash mob. AGE had the groundbreaking beginning it was after!

Philanthropist extraordinaire, Dr. Issa Fathima Jasmine lit up the Valedictory Session in equal measure, momentarily transporting the gathering to a world where they were their best selves and then showing them how to get there, with her Five Rules for Success.

The one day cultural extravaganza became the battleground for more than 21 schools from around the city, coveting titles from 12 extraordinary events.

Spirited performances from the participants of Step Up and Mix Tape made the audience want to stand up, mix it up and dance along too.

The participants of Soothe Our Souls indeed reached out to our souls, making music lovers of all of us.

Visually stunning creations from Behind the Scenes and State of the Arts had heads turning.

The venues of O Captain, My Captain and AdMen could barely contain the wit and eloquence displayed by the participants.

The participants of Mute  Act  showed that actions speak louder than words, while the finest minds conquered the Incredible India Quiz.

The most jubilant event was certainly The Binge, where participants stretched the limits of both their guts and their gumptions.

Making their debut in AGE, the events Kick Off and Blue Planet both kicked off grandly and earned praise for their refreshingly quirky formats.

The Overall Trophy for the School with 'Maximum Number of Winning Points' in different events was clinched by  Vels Vidyashram Senior Secondary School, Pallavaram.

The First Runner up Trophy was bagged by The PSBB Millennium School, Thazhambur and The Velammal International School, Panchetti, Tiruvallur was declared the Second Runner up.
