Graduation Ceremony 2022-2023
NPS Koramangala celebrated the most momentous occasion in the life of its eighteenth batch of Grade 12 students at the Graduation Ceremony on 4th February 2023. The august gathering and inspiring words of eminent guests, eternal blessings of the well-wishers, nostalgic recollections of friends, and sublime music amidst an ambience that exuded warmth and beauty, made the send-off a memory ensconced in the depths of everyone’s heart and mind.
A montage of prized moments of the graduating batch, from elementary through their senior years, made everyone sentimental. The auspicious lighting of the lamp accompanied by the euphonious invocation to the almighty by Grade 8 and 9 students raised the curtains on a charming evening.
Mr RamG Vallath, an author, keynote speaker, tech cofounder, and social worker, was the chief guest for the day. He was accompanied by his wife, Ms. Jayashree Ramamurthy. The Vice Chairperson TISB, NAFL and NPS Group of Schools, Dr. Bindu Hari, Associate Director, TISB, NAFL, GMC and NPS Group of Schools, Ms. Josheta Hari and the Principal, Ms. Jyotsna Nair graced the occasion.
Mr Vallath’s reminiscences about his childhood, education, the challenges he faced later in life due to a crippling autoimmune disease and how he forged a new path, reinventing his life, were a source of immense inspiration for the audience. Vice Chairperson, Dr. Bindu Hari exhorted the outgoing batch to always honour their parents, teachers, and society and pay them back in all possible manners. Dr. Bindu Hari also wished them a life full of joy and hope, and never to be afraid of failures. Both speakers advised the students to give back to society on their path to success. In her address, Principal Ms. Jyotsna Nair urged the young men and women to have a deep belief in their self-worth, to always keep moving towards their goals in life without giving up and thereby achieve excellence in their respective fields of endeavour. The parent speaker, Mr. Vijai Kishan Radhakrishnan extolled the ecosystem in which the school nurtured its students, equipping them to realise their full potential. Scrolls were presented to each of the graduands by the dignitaries.
Vedanth Subramaniam and Jayanth Vikram from the passing out batch shared their beautiful memories and expressed gratitude towards their school which has shaped them into poised and candid persons. School Prefect, Akita Anand read the Covenant, a solemn agreement that reminds the students of their duties in future and a pledge to abide by the values learnt, throughout their schooling. A soulful rendition of the classical melody from Kantara by Ankita Anand, to the beats of the mridangam by Sankarshanan Srikanth and the sonorous notes on the violin by Vishnu H Venkatram (Class of 2022-23) left the audience spellbound. The Candle Lighting Ceremony- a symbolic transfer of the light of knowledge from the teacher to the taught- brought the curtains down on yet another emotional farewell to a new batch of class 12 students. There wasn’t a better way to say Hog Banni.
