A prominent school in Shillong city, St Mary's Higher Secondary School has managed to form the first ever all girl members' brass band or marching band.
The formation of this brass band was the brain child of the school principal, Sister Sonia Chacko. Informing about this initiative to form the brass band, the principal told that as soon as the school re-opened in February this year, she decided to bring students from Class VII and Class VIII for starting of the brass band.
"Every year we need to hire brass band from outside for playing at the parade during the school annual sports event. I thought why not create our own brass band to play at the annual event of this school," she said.
