Wishing goodbye to someone is a mark of a new beginning. On a highly nostalgic note, it carries forward the most important perspective of life, i.e., continuity in a varied environment. Saturday, January 21, 2023, coined itself as one more day in the golden book of history at Maxfort School, Rohini, as we celebrated the good luck ceremony to bid adieu to Class XII students of Batch 2022–23. The showstoppers for the day were the students, dazzling in brilliant attire. The special guests were the parents of the outgoing batch.
The gracious moments commenced with the tilak ceremony of the senior Maxfortians. It was followed by the traditional lamp-lighting ceremony by the honourable principal, ma’am.
Dr Ratna Chakravarty, other dignitaries and the members of the Student Council of the graduating batch. Seeking the blessings of Lord Ganesha, the talented dancers presented Ganesha Vandana. The time was embedded in the memories of Class XII students with the presentation of mementoes as a forever memory of the school days. The speeches by Head Girl Chahat Wahi and Coral House Captain Ragi Gilani made everybody realise that meeting and parting are part and parcel of life. They also elaborated on how their beloved school made them better humans. Respected Principal Ma’am lent the occasion the requisite warmth with her gracious presence and motivated the students to take up one aim, make it their life, think of it, dream of it, let their dream come true, and live that dream through their achievement. She also addressed the worthy parents, saying that, living to our core philosophy of “empowering life,” this is the day we are handing over to them the empowered Maxfortians who had been under our patronage for more than a decade. She wished the students the best of luck to achieve whopping success in the approaching board exams and their lives ahead.
To brighten the ambience, the young Maxfortians presented a fusion dance and farewell song. The event culminated with the singing of the school song, which had been a source of pride for all the students. Walking down the memory lane, mixed emotions and happiness crept into all and the students left on the note ‘Happy trails to you, until we meet again’. The merriment was ended with a refreshment hosted by the school for the students and their parents, who graced us with their benign presence.
