Graduation Day 2021-2022
NPS Koramangala bid a warm adieu to its seventeenth batch of 12th graders at the Graduation Ceremony on 26th March 2022. After the hiatus of two years, the send-off amidst the august gathering of eminent guests, parents and members of faculty at the school premises made the grandiose ceremony all the more enchanting and unforgettable.
A montage of precious moments of the graduating batch made everyone nostalgic. The auspicious lighting of the lamp accompanied by the euphonious music by Grade 10 students raised the curtain of the delightful evening.
Major General Paul Deepak Naidu, chief guest for the day along with the Vice Chairperson NPS Group of Institutions, NAFL and TISB Dr. Bindu Hari, Chief Executive Officer Mr Hari Krishnan, and the Principal Ms. Jyotsna Nair graced the occasion. From his repertoire of invaluable experiences in Indian army, Major General Naidu shared some timeless gems with the class of 2021 to stud their life with. The most prominent being the necessity to learn the art of time management, skill of delegation and tolerance for ambiguity; being mindful of personal well-being and developing ones’ area of influence. Vice Chairperson Dr. Bindu Hari exhorted the outgoing batch to always honour their parents, teachers, society and pay them back in all possible manner. Dr. Bindu Hari also wished them a life full of the joy of anticipation and hope. In her address, Principal Ms. Jyotsna Nair lauded the resilience and fortitude of the graduands during the Covid era. She also urged them to come back to India after pursuing their higher studies or careers abroad and be the drivers of change in their own country.
The soulful rendition of When We Were Young (Adele) by Anusha Venkatramanan of the class of 2021-22 regaled the audience. The scrolls were virtually presented to each of the graduates by the dignitaries. Rohan Nachnani and Aishani Tewari from the passing out batch shared their beautiful memories and spoke about how their alma mater has shaped them into poised and candid persons. School Prefect, Aditya Raj 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. The parent speakers, Ms. Tina Gupta extolled the ecosystem in which the school nurtured its students. With the Ceremonial Declaration by the Principal, the students were finally declared graduands. As the symbolic light of knowledge was received by each of our 65 graduands, all the teachers wished them a bright future. There wasn’t a better way to say Hog Banni than Mr Jason Francis’ mellifluous rendition of Let's Get Together Again (The Glitter Band). The ceremony came to an end with the national anthem.
