The Principal, through an impressive power-point presentation, highlighted the achievements of the last academic year. This year the Annual Report also included interviews of parents, teachers and students — the main stakeholders in the teaching-learning process, on their views about the aims and achievements of the school.
The main attraction of the day’s programme was the Prize Distribution ceremony in which 478 students from classes I to XI were felicitated for their academic achievements.
After the students were appreciated for their academic brilliance, it was time to showcase their excellence in the co-curricular sphere. Around 800 students presented the in-house production—–The Legend of Netaji, a drama based on the life of one of India’s greatest freedom fighters, Subhash Chandra Bose whose memory will forever be etched on the hearts and minds of every Indian as the leader and fighter who gave India, his sweat and blood to free it from the shackles of foreign rule and restore her lost glory. It is an attempt to motivate today’s youth to consider Netaji as a role model and imbibe his positive qualities of dynamism, determination and optimism. The audience was left spell-bound by the splendid display of talent.
The programme concluded with the Vote of Thanks.
