The Khaitan School felicitated the senior wing scholars at a solemn ceremony held in the school premises on 7th October 2017. Chief guest Mr. Ajay Batra, Director Bennett Hatchery and Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship graced the occasion by his benign presence. The function started with the traditional lighting of the lamp accompanied by the chanting of shlokas. A splendidly choreographed classical contemporary fusion dance “Itihaas banana hai” prepared under the able guidance of Music and Dance HOD Mrs. Manju Wazir and dance teacher Mr. Prateek Guharoy captivated the hearts of the audience. A melliflous and motivating group song “Purane din Purane Pal Purane Khwaab “ was sung by the school choir trained under the able guidance of Mrs Ruba Munshi.
Mr. Batra in his address felt true education was to strike a good balance between creativity and what one did outside the classroom. He observed “today’s generation is brimming with innovative ideas. Our job should be to give fire to curiosity and support their creativity and thus enable them to become curious wholesome individuals who try out new experiments”. He wanted the youth firstly be learners as learning never stops and secondly to have perseverance, that is, work hard till one succeeds.
