About 200 students entered the final rounds this week across grades 7-12 & 8 major events that were conducted as a potpourri of events to accommodate them in the 5 days scheduling while retaining the essence of the Buzz. This pattern has become well accepted among the students and fits in well with the school's curriculum and calendar.

The events of the final 2 days of the Buzz were held in the newly refurbished Xavier Auditorium & we were proud to be the first performers on the new stage!!

Krispy Kreme, Vee Bake, Target Career Counselling, and Shekar a parent who donated diaries deserve special mention as donors, as also 3 Old Boys who are ongoing corpus donors to the OBA Buzz and helped us generate cash prizes for the event and gift coupons as also a few other Old Boy donors who contributed for this year only.

Thanks also to all the Old Boys & Old Girls who gave off their time to come help judge the events and conduct them.
