Posted by on Dec 26, 2019 in School News | Comments Off

Graduation Day is an important event on the calendar of our School. This year the occasion was held on 17 December, 2019 where the outgoing batch of class XII bid adieu to the first and deeply loved chapter of their lives.

The ceremony was attended by parents, teachers and members of the School managing committee. Ryan Suri of XI-D and Gunjan Anand of XI-C were the hosts at the event.

The grand ceremony commenced with the customary academic procession where the long and resplendent train of teachers led by the Principal carrying a lighted diya each walked up aisle and deposited the latter on the foot of the stage. Ms Tania Joshi, then addressed the gathering. She described how parting with students who had grown up in the midst of their dear teachers is very painful. But that she rests assured that the values that the children have imbibed over the years will keep them protected through their lives. She urged the parents to lend the children their support to pursue what they best seek to.

School chairman, Mr Prafull Goradia congratulated the students and urged them to seek out greater heights and also stay rooted. He spoke of the role and responsibilities of teachers, parents and society in general, in moulding a child’s future. He said that failure can be turned into success if we are ready to learn from it.

The teachers were then invited to hand over the citations to the students of class XII. The students, looking confident in their uniforms, smiled as they smartly walked up to on stage by turn. The teacher choir then assembled to sing together a popular and inspirational song in honour of the departing young adults.

Peals of delight rent the auditorium as a slide show of past photos taken through the school years, rolled. Most eyes both young and old were moist as the magical moment got relived. Several stared in disbelief as a momentous 14 year long precious sojourn was reaching its culmination.

Following tradition, the students finally mounted the stage with a lighted diya each, in hand The glowing spectacle of the manifold little flames against the sea of the School colours, even as the students sang the School anthem together, one last time, made for a surreal image. The “ lamps of knowledge and values“ were now ready to step outside to light up, as it were, wherever the darkness lingers. Indeed the poise of the children was evidence that they were ready to embark upon a new journey.

Last but not the least, the large group proceeded to the front lawn to joyously release big bunches of colourful balloons and enjoy a scrumptious warm snack served there.
