On cloud nine: The students of Montfort School who emerged overall champion at ‘Forfest 2010' in Tiruchi on Wednesday.

TIRUCHI: It was a rare opportunity for the students to showcase their talent in dance, elocution and other events organised by the Rotary Club of Tiruchi Fort in the city on Wednesday. Called ‘Forfest 2010', the events which formed an inter-school cultural extravaganza, evoked overwhelming response from a little over 500 students from 27 schools in the city.

Students exhibited their talents making optimum use of the time allotted in the events they participated. More interesting was the ‘Mad Ads' event in which the students displayed their creativity by advertising for soft drinks, mobile phone, fast food, drugs, consumer goods. The group event attracted the audience, as every group vied with each other in displaying their skills.The group dance posed a challenge to the students as one of the conditions stipulated that only popular numbers from Tamil films released between 1970 and 1979 should be selected for the performance.

A ‘stress interview' with an option to reply in English or Tamil kept the event interesting all through, said K. Ramakrishnan, president of Rotary Club of Tiruchi Fort. J. Neuman, M. Sorna Ganesh, R.M. Natarajan and Prof. G. Balakrishnan organised the events. V. R. Muthu, Chairman, Idhayam inaugurated the function. The ‘Sam Vivek Sekar memorial rolling trophy' went to Montfort School. The ‘Rtn Dr. V. Balakrishnan memorial rolling shield' was shared by Seva Sangam and Santa Maria Matriculation School.

The ‘Master Forfest' and ‘Miss Forfest' prizes went to Santa Maria matriculation school and St. Antony's matriculation higher secondary school respectively. K. Meena, Vice-Chancellor of Bharathidasan University, gave away the prizes.
