“Our memories of yesterday will last a lifetime. We’ll take the best, forget the rest, and someday will find that these are the best of times.”
Not all good times last forever, neither do school days. Each year, the senior most batch of the school has to leave with a heavy heart, for a new life that welcomes them with open arms. To make the process of leaving a bit easier, the staff and students of Bal Bhavan International School organized the farewell for class 12 students, aptly titled ‘Aagaz E Udaan', on 30th December, 2017. It was a hearty attempt by the teachers and class 11 students to bring a smile on the faces of seniors who would soon be sitting for their board exams, and then leaving the protective environment of the school.
The program began on a high note. The students of class 12 arrived, on this pleasant morning, all decked up. They were greeted by their teachers and seniors at the school gate who welcomed them with roses and handmade cards. Then all of them were seated in the school assembly ground where a specially prepared program was presented by the juniors. A number of moving performances, including songs and dances were performed. To keep the mood pleasant and fun, the outgoing batch was made to perform ramp walk, talent round, and question answer round. The judges then adjudged the best performers as Ms and Mr. Bal Bhavan. Yashika Bhardwaj of class 12D, and Anuj Aggarwal of 12B were bestowed with these titles. Several other titles were also given to deserving candidates.
Teachers of the school, and junior students put in a lot of efforts to make this day truly special for everyone. The seniors clicked photos with each other, and had a lot of fun.
A number of fun filled activities were oragnised, and prizes were given out for quirky tasks. The seniors enjoyed the program, and gorged on delicious food as well.
Ending the day on a high note, DJ played for a few hours. There was happiness in the air, as everyone danced the evening away.
