Naval Band Performance held on 2nd December, 2017 at Gateway of India
As part of Navy week celebrations, the Indian Navy had invited our school to view the programme of naval band performance and tattoo ceremony at Gateway of India on 2nd December, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The ceremony was preceded by a marching contingent and an ‘Operational Demonstration’ by the naval helicopters, marine commandos and Fast Interceptor Crafts. The beating retreat and tattoo ceremony were performed by the Indian naval band with beating of retreat being performed before sunset and the tattoo ceremony being performed after sunset. The events also included fly past by naval helicopters, continuity drill by a contingent of sailors and hornpipe dance by the Sea Cadet Corps. The event concluded with illumination of ships and shore establishments near Gateway of India.
The students and staff were enthralled by the naval performance. It was indeed a treat to our students, as they got the rare opportunity to have a glimpse of various scintillating activities of the Indian Navy.
