Clipping of a Press Release in the Regional Page of "The Hindu", Coimbatore edition on 11 October, 2010

Protecting rural arts: Students of Good Shepherd International School performing folk dance at M.Palada near Udhagamandalam on Sunday.

Udhagamandalam: Culture should be preserved and protected but at the same time it should know no barriers. In keeping with this tenet the 34-year-old Good Shepherd International School (GSIS) at M. Palada near here has launched an extra curricular activity by which its students will be familiarised with the rich and hoary culture of various parts of India by the time they pass out of the institution.

Pointing out that the activity involves participation of students in the folk dances of various regions, the Founder-Principal, GSIS P.C. Thomas told The Hindu at M. Palada on Sunday that through fusion of cultures the existing bond among the students can be strengthened and in the process national integration promoted.

Honing skills

Stating that the GSIS was honing the skills of over 800 students from different parts of India and abroad particularly countries in South-East Asia, he said that a plan of action has been drawn to focus on the folk arts of different states.

In tune with this the 34th Founder's Day celebrations of the school which would be held on October 15 and 16 will feature renowned folk dances of Tamil Nadu like Karagattam, Kaavadiattam, Mayilattam, Oyilattam, Poikaal Kuthirai etc. performed by the students including non-resident Indians and foreigners.

Pointing out that the students who started from scratch about three months ago are now performing like professional dancers, Dr. Thomas attributed it to their interest and dedication and professional guidance.

At a programme organised on Sunday by the school for a group of special invitees, the students showcased their prowess in performing such dances. While some of the participants said that it was an exhilarating experience, some in the galleries observed that it would go along way in infusing fresh blood into the dying folk arts.
