A family outing or me time or a music concert by the young and happening- “Bethany Bling” had it all wrapped up for you at the Bethany High Sarjapur campus on the 7th , 8th and 9th of December, 2023. The school campus was transformed into a dreamland. A giant wheel, Columbus and a bouncy castle were few of the rides that entertained the children and adults alike. The little children were seen squealing with joy as they paddled in the boats and went on train rides with their friends.
There were a variety of stalls from games of skill like Messi’s football and fishing the bottle to creative stalls which offered face painting and tattoos. Parents and their children were seen competing and sharing a laugh as they tried their skills at the games. Since Christmas is around the corner, many stalls sold goodies such as Christmas tree ornaments, attractive decorations and cakes. Ladies were happy to catch up on their Christmas
shopping right here at the carnival. The “Bethany Bling” stall and other jewellery stalls had youngsters buying their wares and flaunting them. The food stalls were bustling as they offered mouth-watering delicacies from rolls, puffs, biryani to Chinese food. For the street food lovers, the pani- puri stall and cotton candy did not disappoint. One could see many hurrying to the Bengali sweet stall or grabbing a Belgian waffle to satisfy those sweet cravings. Bethany bling was a food paradise as well.
The outdoor stage was set up for our dynamic dancers from the Primary department all the way to the Junior college students. A line up of Bethany’s best was at display with various dancing styles and a fashion show too.
There were spot prizes that kept the crowd all excited and charged through the carnival. A karaoke session got many people with hidden talents sing out loud. Those who missed the “Simply the Best” concert this October got a chance to savour the musical talent of the youngsters who set the stage on fire with two shows on Thursday and Friday evening. Fireworks illuminated the night sky to celebrate 60 glorious years of Bethany Institutions as alumni, friends and family bonded at the carnival enjoying the food, fun and togetherness. The instant photograph stall was busy capturing happy faces and sealing those precious memories forever. The Raffle draw on Saturday night saw those chosen few walk away with prizes such as a Thomson television set to a rice cooker. A couple celebrating their anniversary on the 9 th of December went home smiling with a special hamper too.
Thanks to our sponsors who played an important role in the success of the carnival. “Bethany Bling” gave ten thousand people a sparkling memory of joy, happiness, and great times together at Bethany.
