Graduation Day 2024
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined”, says Thoreau.
In the presence of esteemed guests, Dr. J Radhakrishnan, the Commissioner of Greater Chennai Corporation, Dr. K P Gopalakrishna, the Founder Chairman, NPS Institutions, NAFL and TISB, our beloved Administrator, Ms. Lalitha Das and our own Principal, Ms. Sudha Balan, along with parents and teachers, the students of Grade 12 gathered on the eve of 20th January, 2024 to bid adieu to their alma mater.
The event began with the lighting of the lamps by the dignitaries followed by an invocation and a medley of songs by the students of middle years. The Principal, Ms. Sudha Balan, gave the welcome address soon after which the Chief Guest, Mr. Radhakrishnan took centre stage to address our young students to explore various avenues of profession and fly high yet stay rooted to our country and society. This was followed by the Chairman’s address who congratulated the students and urged them to follow their passions.
The Principal declared the students of batch 2023-24 ‘graduates’.
Each and every student of grade 12 was presented a token of their memories of their time in school by both the Chief Guest, the Chairman and the Principal.
The school prefect along with the students took the school pledge and the prefect spoke a few words expressing gratitude to the dignitaries and promised to follow the school motto of ‘Reach out, Reach high and Reach beyond’. Samyuktha and Surya reminisced their life at NPS; the speech was both poignant and joyful.
The days also saw parents of two students– Ms.Lakshmi Prabha and Mr. Chandra Mohan as well as Ms. Sudha and Mr. Suraj speak of their remarkable association with the school and the nurturing of their children into confident young adults.
The lighting of the lamp is indicative of lighting knowledge and spreading this knowledge to all corners of the globe and indeed society. Singing the school song with pride and joy, it was a bittersweet moment indeed.
The dance performance of Krishna’s Kaalinga Nardhana by the students of grades 8, 9 and 11 mesmerized the audience.
The occasion was a memorable one to all gathered.
The evening concluded with a vote of thanks followed by dinner.
