The ceremony was graced by the presence of Chief Guest Sister Basanti Lakra, Vice Provincial, and Guest of Honor Sister Basanti Besra, alongside Sisters Marianne and Salma Lepcha from Ranchi. The program featured 85 students who, symbolizing the beginning of their educational journey, carried saplings during their procession.

A notable highlight was the performance by the Junior KG class, which included a welcome song and a prayer dance, setting a celebratory tone for the day. The graduates expressed their gratitude towards the school staff and their peers in a vote of thanks, and through a choral recitation titled “My Teacher My Captain,” they paid tribute to their teachers.

Sister Basanti Lakra, in her address, emphasized the importance of diversity and unity, drawing parallels with the colors of a rainbow. She also spoke on the significance of integrating various aspects of life to achieve harmony, particularly in the context of India’s multicultural and socialist values.

The event concluded with the distribution of certificates and class photographs, followed by pledges made by the students. A hymn, ‘Showers of Blessings,’ was sung, during which attendees extended their hands over the students in a symbolic gesture of blessing. The ceremony not only celebrated the students’ academic achievements but also highlighted their growth in discipline and confidence.
