The program commenced with the welcome of the Guest of Honour Ms. Shanta Chandran, Mentor Principal, NPS Group of Schools. As the auspicious lamp was being lit, students of Grades 6-8 invoked the blessings of the almighty in a symphonious rendition of Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam- The World is One.

After this, the ceremonial exchange of the school flag and the House flags, symbolic of handing over the reins to the new crop of leaders, was overseen by the dignitary.
The Student Council members of Grade 12 were awarded with Certificates of Appreciation for their commendable work throughout the year. Misti Suvarna received a certificate of appreciation for 100% attendance. The School Prefect, Adrija Thakur reflected on the year gone by, poignantly expressing gratification and gratitude at being able to give her and her team’s best in achieving the ambitious goals set for the year with the support of all the stakeholders. Then came the most awaited announcement: The Best Outgoing Student award, which was bestowed on Siddhant Agarwal, a remarkable leader, and a true all-rounder. Students of Grade 9 added charm to the ceremony with Bharatnatyam and Kathak fusion dance performance.
It was amazing to look back at the slew of year-long major and minor events, activities, and competitions covered in a compact presentation by the Principal Ms. Jyotsna Nair. The sheer opulence of unique learnings and experiences garnered through these brilliant opportunities is conspicuous in the students’ achievements. Ms. Nair also presented the inter-house cultural trophy to the jubilant Voyagers. And when students of Grades 6-11 students mellifluously sang the ‘Children of Sun’, all swayed to the heady rhythm.
The curtains closed on this momentous day with the vote of thanks delivered by Vice Prefect Fareed Ur Rehman. Later, the students of Grades 9 and 11 presented Best of Luck cards to Grades 10 and 11 for the upcoming board exams and a bright future.
