The band performances are always much awaited. With the instruction to be present on the grounds, all our bankable band performers took their positions to welcome the Chief Guest , the Members of Management of the school and the other dignitaries that included our Heads and Supervisors and the Principal of Don Bosco International School.
At the stroke of 8 o’clock, the Band Commander gave a guard of honour to the Chief Guest and other dignitaries present. The band followed by the Student Council accompanied the guests with deference till the dais playing rhythmic tunes of flutes, drums and bugle horn. The school band assisted at the grand march past and the salute by the four houses and other troupes by playing the melodious and rhythmic tunes such as The Bombay march, Bharat ke Jawan, Jai kishan and Life over the Ocean.
The band performance is incomplete without the drill display. The comperes introduced our band and students marched up to the dais for an elegant and exquisite drill display.
