Shivananda Vidyalaya PSA(UK) - Christmas Event 2017
It was the time of the year again when PSA, BT/Shivananda Vidyalaya (UK Branch) cordially welcomed both children and adults at Preston Manor school hall for their 23rd annual Christmas function on Saturday 16th of December. Once again a number of participants and well - wishers gathered at the Hall as usual as it was one of their remarkable events that was initially organised to provide opportunities to all of those from their community together from each and every corner of the UK to meet their old friends, relatives in one place.

The highlight of the function was the talent show which was organised to motivate and inspire young minds to showcase their talent which has given them their recognition. The Chairperson of PSA took the pride in saying that the talent displayed was the proof that they will not only become worthy citizens of our society also help others in our society in numerous ways. He further added that they are not only providing a platform for their new talents to be shown to others, but most of all to alleviate the lives of our people back at home, especially underprivileged children through fund raising events like this.

The event began at 7 pm, it was officially inaugurated by the Chief Guest Mr. Mayooran Kathirgamanathan and the representatives from St. Michaels College A. A., ADVRO, Bt/Central College OBA and FOBH who were also present as special invitees at this ceremony.

As usual the venue was utilized to have a variety of games for a range of age groups of children along with a Fancy Dress Competition. The children were delighted to meet the Santa, who brought them numerous presents. In fact, the evening came to an end with a couple of performances from older members of the PSA.

At the end of the ceremony, prizes were awarded to all the participants by the special invitees. While thanking the audience, the Chairperson Mr. E.Indrakumar quoted, 'I am very proud of our energetic committee members of the executive committee for their untiring effort to make these fund raising events run by our PSA a success'. He also expressed his gratitude to all those who so generously helped to make the event come together smoothly.
