"Farewells are not forever, nor are they the end. They are simply words to say that we will miss you all dearly and that we will remember you fondly!"
The bursting corridors of Prudence School, Ashok Vihar, echoed with blessings, reflections, sentiments, and gratitude on the evening of 1st February 2020 when the entire grade 11 students and teachers came together to bid farewell to the outgoing batch of 2019-20.
The day was a fiesta devoted to the years spent together with friends and teachers to reminisce joyous moments. The ambience glittered appropriately in black and golden themed backdrop keeping in mind the theme ‘The Gatsby.’
The extravagant ceremony was graced with the benign presence of the Hon’ble Chairman, Sh. G.S.Matharoo who acknowledged the students and wished them all the best as they stride into the future. He motivated them to move ahead with a positive attitude in life and to conquer the world with their wisdom and charm.
It was a sight to behold as the batch of 2019-20 showed up in their finery and sashayed on the ramp amidst thunderous applause. The young ladies glowed in beautifully draped sarees, and the gentlemen carried themselves smartly, looking dapper. The hall roared with applause as specially composed titles were presented to the students. Each title was chosen to suit the individual dynamic personalities! Lakshay Sehrawat and Navya Malik won the most coveted title of Mr. Prudence and Ms. Prudence, respectively.
A cultural presentation staged by the students of Class XI had a mix of scintillating dance performances, entertaining theatre, melodious songs, and pulsating music that was enjoyed by one and all. The Students of class XII in their farewell speech mused fondly about their learning in school and looked forward with keenness to their future, calling this juncture not an end but a bend in their journey of life. They thanked their mentors for helping them find their purpose in life with a promise to come back to their Alma Mater.
The grand function culminated with teary-eyed hugs, selfies, and scrumptious dinner. The enthusiastic zealots were bound to take back wonderful and celebratory memories of the day.
Although these young Prudenites may seem separated by time and distance in the short term, nothing will diminish the vital role that they have and always will play in the history of their school.
