SBCS Champs Fleurs Student Council members, ACCA student Mr Dillon Gosien and BTEC Construction / MBA student Ms Priscilla Mohammed, hosted a Divali programme on Monday, October 20th, 2014. Mr. Gosien opened the programme with prayer and a call to remembrance of the recently departed, but not forgotten, SBCS family member, Mrs. Mridula Seemungal. Dr. Robin Maraj, Executive Director SBCS, addressed students, reminding all of the diversity we embrace in Trinidad & Tobago and he encouraged all to continue on this path as it sets us apart as a people.
The show featured performances by students and invited guests, which included songs and a mix of traditional and modern dances. Tassa drums sounded around the campus ensuring everyone was aware of the event. The highlight of the programme, as noted in past Divali functions, was the fashion segment in which traditional and modern Indian wear were displayed. Students presented an array of beautiful garments as individuals and couples. Again, the models moved the audience as they incorporated unrehearsed theatrics in their presentations. Mehndi artist, ACCA student, Ms. Santhoshi Srujana Vadigi, was on hand to provide staff and students with the much anticipated hand designs to last throughout the Divali season. The programme closed with the distribution of Indian sweets to students and staff.
This was yet another year in which the Divali presentation encapsulated the beauty that shines within our SBCS students.
