Celebrating 25 Years of KC High

Tamil Patru - A day to celebrate Tamil

KC High showcases its affinity to Tamil language and culture in its curtain raiser 25th anniversary event.

KC hosted an interschool Tamil Pattimandram on the 10th October 2023, as part of the bigger event ‘Tamizh Patru’ for the Silver Jubilee Celebration. It was presided over by Mr. “Pattimandram” Raja, the renowned and humoristic Pattimandram speaker. Mr. R.J.Balaji, a popular Tamil Radio Jockey, also graced the occasion. About 14 schools participated in this competition and after preliminary rounds 8 speakers qualified through to speak in the presence of Honorable Chief Guest, Mr. Raja and an enthusiastic audience. The topic of debate being: “இன்றைய சூழலில் நமது வளர்ச்சிக்கு மிகவும் உதவுவது மனித நுண்ணறிவா அல்லது செயற்கை நுண்ணறிவா?”

The 8 young speakers from various schools enthralled the audience and the judge with their thoughts, diction, and fluency. The event started off with Tamizh Thaai Vaazhthu before mesmerizing the audience further in traditional, energetic Tamil dance performances by our students. The audience were drawn deeper into the beauty of Tamil language by Mr Raja’s eloquence and sense of humor. A few student speakers got special mentions during the pattimandram. Human intelligence won over Artificial intelligence for the sheer fact that it is reigned by emotions and wise judgment.

The entire campus looked festive with vibrant colors and ethnic wear. A traditional food stall by Arusuvai sold authentic Tamil desserts and savories. And, traditional games conducted by Kreeda also enthused the students on campus. The event ended with a beautiful Villupaatu rendition by our students.

Overall, the celebration left everyone in awe with the thoughts, reverberating laughter, sheer grandeur, and finesse!
