Jaigopal Garodia Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Choolaimedu, held the valedictory function of its Literary Association on January 23.
Around 1,700 students of the school were treated to a host of cultural performances, including a bharathanatyam performance and the crowd-favourite western dance performance by tiny tots dressed as colourful Barbie dolls.
The highlight of the day was a mimicry show by film artist Dhamu, who entertained the audience with his funny antics. He effectively recreated the sights and sounds of a bustling railway station, the hypnotic tunes of city birds and brought to life images of yesteryear actors with his incredible voice modulation. The squeals of laughter and thunderous applause that resonated in the school grounds were testimony to the high-on-octane show.
The programme came to an end with a prize distribution ceremony where meritorious students and teachers were felicitated. The chief guest for the ceremony, P Kuppusamy, chief educational officer, Chennai, gave away the prizes.
