11 May 2018, witnessed a very vibrant and jubilant atmosphere as the school celebrated the 157th birth anniversary of the world’s renowned dramatist and poet, Shri Rabindranath Tagore.



The programme in the school auditorium started with the felicitation of the honourable Chief Guest, Lt. Col. Digvendra Singh, an alumnus of the Indian Military Academy followed by the lighting of the lamp to invoke the blessings of the Almighty.



The inaugural dance by the students, a harmonious fusion of the western and eastern prayer song, beautifully set the tone for the day’s programme.  Paying tribute to the rich works of the legendary Bard of Bengal, the boys sang two of his prayer songs and excellently attempted recitation of the Bengali and Hindi translation of his poem titled ‘Atmatran’.



The final mesmerizing performance celebrated the maestro’s valuable dance drama ‘Chandalika’ through which the Bard had raised his poignant voice against the practice of untouchability that was tearing the society apart.



Fr. Rector addressing the gathering talked of imbibing the qualities of the greatest exponent of Bengali Literature.  The honourable Chief Guest, in his address, shed light on some vital ‘life truths’ and the value of perseverance to endure life’s hardships.


The day also witnessed the release of the school magazine by the Chief Guest.  The entire programme, a befitting tribute to Tagore’s legacy, beautifully provided a glimpse of the genius of the creative artist, the reason why Tagore continues to reside in the hearts of the people.



The second half of the programme included the distribution of the prizes to the meritorious students for the academic session 2017-2018. The awardees received certificates and novels for their excellent academic performance and their dedication and commitment.


The programme concluded with the vote of thanks by the Principal, Fr. Sunit Kiro and singing of the National Anthem.
