Sacred Heart bags second position at national-level school band competition

Wednesday, 25 January 2023 | PNS | Chandigarh

The city’s Sacred Heart Senior Secondary School, Sector-26, has bagged the runners-up position in the All-India School Band competition, organized — for the first time as a part of the Republic Day celebrations — by the Department of School Education and Literacy of Union Education Ministry, in collaboration with the Defence Ministry.

More than 300 schools participated in the competition, and only top eight schools, from across the country, were selected to perform at the National War Memorial Complex in the national capital, between January 15 and 22. 

Sacred Heart’s 25-member Marching Band was led by Captain Sehaj Kaushal, assisted by vice-Captains Kanika and Namya Garg. Performing in the Brass Band, the Band’s precise symphonic and orchestral recital along with the visual interpretation of the music through the use of instruments, drums, cymbals, and sabres was a sight to behold. Discipline, teamwork, and absolute adherence to instructions upped the ante. 

Sacred Heart Marching Band was honoured with a runner-up shield and certificates of appreciation for their performance which was a euphonious tribute to the ‘Bravehearts of The Indian Army’. 

School principal Sister Arti said that Sacred Heart School Marching Band’s performance not only endorsed the values of unity and patriotism but also manifested our Heartian legacy — that is, empowered girls with enlightened and confident minds.
