In a very special ceremony, aptly christened Udaan, we bid farewell to our graduating class of 2016 on 5th February. Although saddened at the thought of our flock of fifteen leaving our fold, we are also proud and joyous that they are all ready to soar high towards their dreams and aspirations.
The Graduation Day ceremony had all the makings of a grand celebration. Our outgoing batch attired in smart Indian wear designed especially for the occasion, was accompanied by their parents who had awaited this moment for years.
The students of Class 11 put up a mesmerizing cultural programme which included an invocation dance, inspiring musical performances and a heart- rending poem recited by Abhishek. The slide show capturing memorable fun filled moments spent by the class of 2016 in school had all bursting into laughter and wiping tears rolling down their cheeks, all at the same time.
While Charu Ma’am read out a beautiful poem that she had penned for our favourite fifteen, Richa Ma’am expressed her faith that they would attain great heights, shine the brightest and achieve the unimaginable.
Pooja Ma’am in her message encouraged the students to pursue goals that require not just simple, straightforward hard-work, but rather the far greater and more wholesome challenge of engaging truly, deeply and thoroughly in what may be described as ‘heart-work’.
Along with showers of love and blessings, the graduating class also received a personalized Year Book and designer ‘angavastra’ as mementos.
Head Boy Raj Gaurav and Head Girl Sruthi Balakrishnan shared memories of their beautiful journey at NiBS and expressed gratitude to their teachers and alma-mater for nurturing them with boundless love and care.
It was a truly emotional and touching moment when Class 12 took centre stage to sing the school song for the very last time. Their quivering voices and wet eyes silently conveyed their feelings on leaving school.
The ceremony concluded on a sweet note with our graduating class enjoying the delectable chocolate truffle cake they had especially been looking forward to all year long!!
