The Grove School won the first prize. The topic taken by the school was “Jatayu Moksham”. The Play was highly emotional and the characters impeccably played their part. R. Abhishek of The Grove School, who depicted the character Ravana was adjudged “The Best Actor Award” and Shreyas Santhosh was given a special prize.
R. Abhishek’s voice modulation was well appreciated. The success of the play was because of the strenuous efforts of the Sanskrit teacher, Mr. Muthupandi who was awarded the “Best Teacher Award”.
