IT took Sekolah Sri Sedaya students and staff a month to come up with a memorable event for Parents Night 2007 last Saturday.
As the doors of the school hall opened to the guests that night, students in their concert costumes scurried about in nervous jitters to get ready for the show.
They were told that it was a time for them to show off their full potential outside the classroom. And that would be demonstrated by performing before a live audience with dazzling performances to the visual lighting and sound effects.
The event opened with the schools uniformed bodies greeting the guest-of-honour UCSI (University Collage Sedaya International) chief executive officer Datuk Peter Ng.
Soon after, guests were welcomed with a cultural melange of traditional Indian, Malay and Chinese dances by the primary students of the school.
This dance was to welcome the parents to the nights event and also to give the event harmonic feel as the theme for the night was Malam Harmoni.
It wasnt an easy task but all the hard work and effort paid off when the audience cheered after each performance.
The highlight for the nights event was the band performances by the secondary school students.
The first band performance was performed by The Fishermans Friend who performed three songs including Hapuskan Aku by Indonesian pop band Nidji and You Got Me Going by The Kinks.
The second band Kiss Me, the hit song by Six Pence None The Richer.
There were also bands from other students of the secondary school who performed songs like When You Say Nothing At All by Ronan Keating and Freak Out by Avril Lavigne.
Parents played a big role in helping to prepare the students for the event. For this, school principal George Thomas thanked them.
I also hope that they will keep on giving their full support as social activities and co-curricular activities are equally important, said George.
The night ended with the secondary students performing Malay, Chinese and Indian dances.
This event was a great success and all of us put in a lot of effort said Mohd Amir Putra, one of the performers that night.
