UDAAN, the Annual farewell ceremony for the graduating batch of 2019 was held on Friday, 1 February, 2019, as the 21 stars of the evening were ready to embark on a new journey leaving the nest which has nurtured and nourished them, and carry the responsibility of representing their alma mater.
The poignant and solemn occasion was attended by the parents of Std XII students, the Chairperson, Pooja Ma’am, Principal Charu Ma’am, Heads of School, Amita Ma’am and Vibha Ma’am, and teachers.
Pooja Ma’am instilled a sense of confidence and courage into the young hearts by stressing on the fact that each one of them was a winner as they held the greatest trophy of all – the trophy of life!
Charu Ma’am had everyone sitting in attention with bated breath as she read out a self-composed poem unveiling the salient traits of each of the 21 graduating students.
In her message, Amita Ma’am advised the students to chase their dreams, try new things and continue to hone their skills and good things will come their way. A short film took the students down memory lane and all possible reactions could be seen and heard.
The Latin term “alma mater” means nourishing mother and as the young brigade was ready to soar, they are also expected to carry the NiBS legacy forward. Each student was bestowed with the NiBS angvastra and Udaan magazine signifying the ethos and values of the institution.
Lot of cheer and bonhomie marked the rest of the evening as the students enjoyed scrumptious snacks and clicked photographs with their teachers and friends. As they leave the portals of the school, each one of them will be taking a bit of this institution with him or her and at the same time will be leaving a little part of them here.

On 2nd February 2019 students of classes Ankur and Pallav showcased a myriad of their talent in the Annual Day. The Annual function was based on the Annual theme How’dini…..The Magic of ‘HOW’ Things Work! A drama was staged which had few children enjoying the vacation who desired to invent a ‘magical vehicle’ and also wanted to explore the How’s and Why’s behind various natural phenomena such as how the water flows and the wind blows.
They captivated the audience with their insightful queries. For their each query they had their peers dancing to provide an insight to their quest. With the Ankur Malhaar dancing to the tune of ‘Bum-bum bole’ the mood to find answers to the Hows and Whys of these little dramatists was set ablaze.
As the drama progressed the stage was set on fire by the Ankur Basant children who marched as little ants. Pallavs’ Elocution about the water cycle enthralled the parents and the grandparents.
With the water cycle being talked about the audience witnessed a thunderous performance by the little ‘droplets’ of both Ankur and Pallav. When the drama further unfolded we had another set of dancers from these classes dancing to showcase the metamorphosis of a butterfly.
Not only the natural phenomena were discussed in the drama, the ‘How’s and Why’s related to vehicles were also enquired by our little dramatists. Thus came the Ankur Bahaar children with a peppy ‘train dance’. The grand finale of the show was a dance on the song ‘There’s magic in the air’.
The cold and frosty weather of 2nd February was forgotten as Classes I and II presented their Annual Day. The annual theme for the students was the six simple machines and groovy gadgets. So the entire annual day was woven around this.
The journey began with the students welcoming their parents with a song ’Aao Haath Milayein’, setting the tone for the day. The students looked resplendent as they sang enthusiastically about the benefit of working together showcasing that if we work together we can achieve new heights.
With the belief that we should start anything with the name of God, our students presented the ‘Pushpanjali Dance’ a tribute to God seeking His blessings. The dazzling performance by the students showed the amount of practice they had done as each student danced in sync with one another.
Next, came the play ‘The Toy Story’, which was based on our annual theme showing the use of various simple machines. It showed the story of a doll which enters a household on the day of Christmas. In the beginning she feels quite superior to other toys as she is new and shiny but one day while playing her arm gets broken.
The other toys call ‘Handy Manny’ for repair and also give up one part each. It thus depicted how we should help each other in times of need. Since the play was based around Christmas time, we had a ‘Jingle Bell dance’ with the students grooving to lively Christmas music.
Looking at the astounding performance it was hard to believe that the kids were only 6 or 7 years old. They also sang an Italian song ’Un Poco Loco’. As the doll was feeling sad over her broken arm, someone came to cheer her up.
There was happiness and joy all around as clowns came visiting and performed an energetic dance for the parents. Their colourful clothes and cheery smiles lit up the day as everyone was soon moving to the lively music. As Handy Manny was able to fix her arm everyone was happy.
To mark the end of the play we had a ‘Finale Dance’. Students danced to the music of Hakuna Matata, All of us together and I like to move it. The stunning performance by the students left the parents spellbound and impressed
