Lahore: LMA Wapda Town organised the Grand Inter School Music Festival, ‘Chuppay Rustam 2016’ at the Ali Institute Auditorium on Wednesday, December 21, 2016.

The objective of the event was to pay tribute to our Urdu poets like Sufi Tabassum and Allama Iqbal and to revive our classic Urdu nursery rhymes. This programme provided a platform to our young students to mingle and enjoy Urdu literature written for children. It helped develop the students’ confidence in facing large audiences, enhanced their presentational skills and encouraged group work.

LMA Wapda Town participated in the event along with six other branches of Beaconhouse, namely, Canal Side Campus, Peco Road Campus, Model Town Campus, AITC, Bahria Town Campus and Ring Road Campus. Beaconhouse Regional Director Mr Ali Ahmad graced the occasion as chief guest. Comparing was done by Khadeeja Zahid from Class II-Red.

The programme commenced with recitation and translation by Saaim Hafeez and Sabeeha Hafeez from Class II-Red and was followed by an address from LMA Headmistress Mrs Nayyer Naveed Qureshi. Guests were treated to a welcome song by students of Kindergarten and Classes I and II. Next, little tots from the Model Town Campus presented a beautiful tableau on the famous Urdu classic poem ‘Lakri Ki Kaathi’ while Bahria Town Campus came up with an eye catching performance on ‘Bulbul Ka Bacha’. Ring Road Campus beautifully enacted ‘Paanch Chhohay’ and the little champs of AITC gave a wonderful performance on ‘Daadi Amman Kehti Hain’. Students from CSC won the audience’s hearty applause by presenting ‘Chaand Taray’ while Peco Road Campus surprised the guests with a unique performance on ‘Pahaar or Gulehri’.

Hosts LMA Wapda Town also brought out their ‘Chuppay Rustams’ on the stage to give magnificent performances on ‘Dil Dil Pakistan, Shehed Ki Makhi, Naani Teri Morni, Daadi Amman Kehti Hain, Pahelyaan and Qawwaali’.
