It is with immense pride and joy that I, as the Headmaster of Government Mizo High School, announce a momentous achievement by our school’s Pipe Band at the Eastern Zonal School Band Competition. The talented students from our school have not only brought glory to our institution but have also earned the honor of representing our school, city, and the entire East Zone at the distinguished All India National School Band Competition. This significant event, organized by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the Ministry of Defence, has become an integral part of the Republic Day Celebrations since its inception in 2017.
Out of 73 schools participating at the zonal level, our School Pipe Band has emerged as the triumphant force from the East Zone. Their exceptional success now propels them to the grand finale at the National Stadium in New Delhi on January 21st and 22nd, 2024.
Established in the year 2000, the Govt. Mizo High School Pipe Band comprises 25 dedicated boys who have devoted eight months to rigorous practice in anticipation of this significant event. Their journey to the national stage commenced with a decisive win in the Eastern Zonal School Band Competition held in December 2023.
Having witnessed the band’s remarkable history, including their debut appearance at the NCC RDC Delhi in 2007, where they left an indelible mark at the Prime Minister’s Rally, I am confident in their ability to represent our school with pride and excellence at the upcoming national competition. Beyond the pursuit of victory, our band members are not only vying for the coveted title but also for the cash prize, trophy, and certificates awarded to winners in each category at the National Level Band Competition.
As the excitement builds, the School Pipe Band carries the hopes and aspirations of Aizawl and the entire East Zone. Beyond the pursuit of victory, they aim to create a harmonious spectacle at the grand event in New Delhi, showcasing the dedication, talent, and musical prowess that define their journey to the national stage. The entire school community eagerly anticipates the melodic notes that will resonate from this talented ensemble, leaving an enduring legacy in the realm of school band competitions.Hmingchungnunga Headmaster, Govt Mizo High School
